Pampered Chef: Booths My first booth this Sunday

  1. I'm going to be at a flea market this Sunday and running my first booth. My director is trying to find someone to go with me so I don't have to do it alone for the first time, but there is a good chance that I will be there solo :eek: .

    Can any of you give me some tips for running a booth. The only things I have to bring are my SS Kit, a table cloth, and a Pampered Chef sign.

    I was planning to make some host packets to give out to the people who are interested and have people fill in the door prize slips so I can follow up with people.

    Any advice would be great.

(I know, because I just tried :) ) I'm not trying to pawn you off, but there is already a lot of info that you have access to right now!! Good Luck and let us know how you do!! :p

    Here in nashville on the last week-end of the month there is a HUGE.. I mean HUGE flea market at the fairgrounds.. I have a freind who sat up a booth there. Maybe when I actually get things up and running, thats a possibility for me. I have no problem doing it.. Its the Nashville heat I might have an issue with!! :eek:

    There are tons of things to look up this site. As far as only having the Super Starter Kit....that is PLENTY! I'd set up the kit for everyone to see. I'd also make some little cookies made on your stone. That will attract people to your booth. People ALWAYS LOVE food! If not cookies, you could make some dip. The problem with dip is it has to stay cold. If you don't have the chillzanne bowls, that might be a challenge outside.

    I'd have some packets to hand out as well as catalogs. If you ask your director, she might have OLD CATALOGS to pass out. That way you are not using up your new ones. It also allows you to tell people you have new ones at home if they would like you to send one to them.

    You MUST do a PRIZE DRAWING. This is where you will get people's names, emails, phone, and addresses. I've attached a fair prize drawing slip. The thing you are going to get the most of at fairs are LEADS! Leads for shows, leads for recruits, LEADS LEADS LEADS. You can give away FREE KITCHEN SHOWS. That means you bring the ingredients, paper plates, and cups.

    Take along recruit info. If you don't have this, ask your director if you can borrow some and you will replace them when you order some.

    Good luck...have fun...let us know how it goes.

    I like your "Call me before I call you special!" What a great idea. I'll have to try that after our county fair in a few weeks.

    Thanks for the info. It's always good to get some new fresh ideas. I'm with Becky at trying it out at the fairs this summer/fall. :)

    I have duplicate products that I've earned free. I usually give those away. That is why I suggested you give away a free kitchen show. It's easy and is a tax write off.
