    I came across a great oppurtunity today. A new bakery opened up downtown and has some to die for goodies. I had already taken my catalogs in to the owner in hopes of getting some sales. Well, this morning I asked her if I could set up a display in her bakery. She said yes!!! This would display would stay in her store all the time. I had thought I would just put some catalogs, a register to win box, my business cards and maybe a product or 2. Do you ladies have any ideas? I went shopping immediately to buy a small bakers rack and found one on sale for next to nothing. It is not very big and only has 3 shelves. I do not want to clutter it up though.
    I am very excited at the possibilities ahead and the contacts I might make with this. Any of your ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    That is a great idea, especially in a bakery. Hope everything works out great for you.

    Good Luck,
    Debbie :D

    Awesome idea - I just may contact a couple bakeries or similar stores here! Where do u live in NC? I live in New Bern. A couple idea for your display would be to use the simple additions small bowls and rack to put your business cards in. Also I'd be sure to display some things on one of our towels on the shelf. You may also want to consider thanking the bakery owners somehow.....maybe with an item they could use in the shop? Good Luck! :eek:

    Thanks Cindy. I had planned on offering the bakery 20% off throughout the year. I will probably bring her some free goodies as well.
    I live in Marion. It is about 30 miles east of Asheville.

    What a great opportunity for you! I suggest you check with HO to see if you can display items at a business. I know that we can not have items "for sale" at any store. You CAN put out flyers, catalogs, order forms and business cards. Let us know what you find out!

    PS: I live in Mebane NC (half way between Raleigh and Greensboro).

    I only have a batter bowl with my business cards and a few small wooden spoons attached the the rack as display. Nothing big. All that is really there is catalogs, business cards and the new mini catalog.

    The reason I brought it up is that I was asked to display a wine bottle opener at a Winery. They said I could sell them or take orders if I wanted. I was going to do that but saw somewhere that I couldn't display products in a store. I don't remember if it was in the Recipe for Success or where. When I get a chance to look it up I'll let you know.

    The big deal is that PC does not allow us to sell in stores and it could just be my interpretation. I wouldn't want anyone to get in "trouble" over an innocent act.

    I know what you are talking about. I read it a while back. You can not set your stuff up to sell on a regular basis in a store. So they are bascially saying no PC stores. I think mine will be ok because it is no different then putting out catalogs at a hair salon or doctors office. But as you say, I surely don't want to be the one to break any rules. I will check my book again. Thanks.
