    I will be doing a charitable holiday shopping event at a large insurance company. All it is costing me is a donation of a $10-$15 item for a charity raffle. I have that covered with Appetizer & Holiday Dessert cookbooks as well as a SBCB. There are 500 employees!

    I need ideas! What has worked for you? What should I avoid doing?

    I will have a 5' table so I can't take too much.

    So far, I have decided to do all orders. No cash & carry. I will have my laptop.

    I want to promote RUFTH.

    I'm thinking mystery host(s), depending on sales.

    The DCB Set (on display with a stand up flyer)

    My "Inner Martha" Special-I put this together for 3 shows I had last week and they went nuts over it. I will display those items with a stand up flyer.

    How am I doing so far?

    I'm just getting back from a booth, and I did do c&c, and it was a lot of work!!

    The things that sold the most for me, Twixit Clips, Spreaders, Mini Spatulas, 3 pack Quikcut knives and Sauces (and Pineapple was bought most), followed by Wasabi, then Thai and no one bought a maple. I also sold SB, current and olders ones, as $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.

    I did have a HUGE amount of single Quikcut knives taken today. Ugh.

    I paid $50.00 for booth, sold total of $224.00 worth of products as C&C, so made some profit, Also got 1 solid booking with lots of leads to follow up. I also got an order for something I didn't have with me and will add onto show I'm closing with week.

    I'm not sure how I'd do what you're doing, but sounds like MUCH less work than I went through and I've got LOTS to get back in order here at home now.

    I'm not planning on any c&c other than SBCBs. I want to keep the lugging to a minimum.
