So, I've heard the idea a few times about setting up your own vendor event if none are available. Over the last few months, I've met/networked with quite a few other Direct Sales/Crafters in my area. Now, my town/area doesn't really have any vendor events that I've seen in the 2 yrs I live here, but we are a decent size town and they always have town events- so the traffic would probably be good. We also have two good-sized elementary schools (and a 3rd on the edge of town) in town. I'd love to try to contact the schools (PTA?) and/or the town chamber of commerce about a Vendor day - and I'm almost positive I could get the other vendors involved based on our conversations and them wanting business as much as I do. I was just wondering what others may have done to set up their own vendor events like that? PTAs, churches, towns?? *does anyone have a letter/flyer, etc that you've used to introduce this idea to an organization?
