Pampered Chef: Recruiting Expo A Bust

    I rented a local community center $125 on a major intersection Saturday, had to buy an insurance policy $80, spent about $70 on ads for 2 different newspapers, and had 150 11 x 17 signs printed on cardstock $100.
    There were 6 other vendors besides me that paid me $25 each.
    Besides the few friends that came to visit, we had 1 customer.
    The temperature outside being around 100 didn't help.

    I had one friday night and no one showed - even the people that RSVP'd. I understand, but I'm so sorry all of you guys put forth so much effort (and $$). Hang in there!!

    Chef Bobby I am so sorry, I know those things are SOOOO disappointing!!

    Just to let you know and for everyone else. We have liability insurance through PC.
    I once did an event and needed the insurance, every other vendor got something through their home owners I called HO and they faxed me a certificate.

    They said that it had to be a million dollar policy. I don't know what PC offers.
