Pampered Chef: Bookings Take 'Em If You Got 'Em! (HWC)

    I took the HWC items to my show today. I didn't bring them out until I was talking about May's Host Bonus.

    I passed them around and the oohs and ahhs were LOUD! It was a small show - only 4 guests, and one was the past host, who brought me her order to close her show. (the host for today just booked last Friday!) One of the guests was going to book for June, until I brought out the HWC products, and then, she changed her mind and booked for May! Everyone there was already placing their orders for pink products for her show! I think she may have faced an angry mob (can 4 women be a mob?) if she hadn't changed her show to May!

    The 3 things they ALL want are:

    Daisy Plates
    Recipe Cards
    Cake Testers

    In 6 years of selling PC, I have NEVER had this kind of reaction from the HWC items!

    (Oh - and it didn't hurt sales for today one bit! 4 orders, and already at $200....and there were several outside orders still to come. There were 2 phone calls from people while I was there requesting to see the catalog.)

    That's awesome to hear!
    I have 3 shows in a row next weekend and I can't wait to take mine, in fact, I ordered another set of all of the products, except for the scraper, since I had that one from last time. I mainly wanted another set of plates. That was my objective, but then the towels and everything else are just so nice...

    I am very happy with May HWC items also.

    In the past not all of the guest have been very pleased with the really "pink" only items. I think this years selection is by far the best they have come out with!

    Hee Hee - I ordered a 2nd set too, Steph, and for the same reason!

    It's the first time I've ever wanted doubles on HWC stuff. (other than when the pink microfiber towels were one of the items.)

    I love this year's HWC items. The pink scraper they've brought back is my favorite...it is the scraper I reach for most. And finally, cake testers! How long have consultants been asking for them to come back? Everything else I love too, but those two especially. (Just tossing in my two cents...it's late, I've been doing taxes, and I'm punchy). :)

    I've got to add that the recipe cards are really nice! I haven't been around that long, so I appreciate having a "real" recipe for some of the classics that I keep hearing about!

    I will be taking mine tomorrow and hoping for the same response. I'm really happy with the selection this year and I hope everyone else will be too!
Have something to add?
