I had a booth at the Taste of Home Cooking show Tuesday night. There were 800+ tickets sold. I was allowed to have two tables set up in an L shape. My table across the top, I displayed all the new fall products, plus had survey slips to be filled out for a drawing. I gave away the new Cranberry Bar Board, the Butternut Bar Board and the Leaf & Stripe towel set. On the side table, I decorated it like a dinning room table. On one half, I set up the white SA with the stripe place mat and set out the white rectangle SA in the new basket. I decorated it with candles and fall flowers like what is show in the catalog. Then on the other half, I flipped the placemat over and set up the new stripped SA. You would not believe how many people liked those. They were going nuts. The survey slips I used were ones that I had found on here. I believe under a thread about Fairs. It's the one that is 4 on a sheet and they can circle Yes, No or Maybe to the questions. Well, when I got home I stayed up until I went through all the slips. All the ones that were all No's I put in one pile and anything that had a Yes or Maybe went in another pile. Ok, are you ready for the results? I ended up with 192 slips that said yes or maybe on them. I have A LOT of phone calls to make. Out of those, I had about 1 dozen people put Yes that they were interested in selling, and about 2 dozen put maybe they were interested in selling. The rest were, kitchen shows, catalog shows and just wanting to place an order. If you all don't hear from me for about a month, you know what I will be doing.
