    BUT - they want cash & carry! All are after September 1. So new products would be in the mix. Any ideas on what?

    I forgot to ask one important question. Money. How much do you think I should invest? Has anyone done this before? If so, how much did you spend and how much did you sell? I sure as heck do not want to be stuck with a ton of stuff either. I do not use a basket or anyting else for my parties so the extra would sit until I get rid of it some other way.

    How much you sell depends on the traffic. I would also include outlet items and factor in a little tax+shipping in what you ask for them.

    When I do cash and carry I round everything up. So a Mini S. Spatula is $5.

    You should also see if your fellow cluster members may be willing to lone you stuff that they already have. Then you can pay them back in product. That way you have cash and carry but only order to replenish what you sell. This has worked well for me and luckily my director is fine with it. This way I don't get stuck with too much.

    Good Luck!:)

    Don't forget the vegetable peelers. People love those. The Mix n Chop's I always sell out of. With Christmas not so far away people will buy them like crazy.

    A Quick tip for Cash and Carry

    I make a master inventory list by setting up a fake show on my Pampered Partner and then have one large order of all the inventory I am taking. I print a receipt for the fake guest on plain paper. Now, I have a list of each item and the price to keep on my clipboard during the day. I don't spend time labeling each item. I find that people know PC and know what they want so the price isn't a big deal.

    I was just talking to someone about cash and carry events. Now I know the events specifically request that you have product on hand. but let's say you buy $50 in spices. That's techincally cash and carry right? So people know PC well enough to know that we take orders and they are shipped rather quickly. Do you think that would be ok?

    I've done alot of vendor events...I'd be afraid to invest my money up front!!! Some are good...some are awful, then what? And from our LARGE catalog...how do you even begin to choose what your customers are going to want! I was always under the impression that SELLING like that was against our agreement! Can you put together some "gift basket" ideas...that could showcase our products and also be sold if need be? Select items that you might want to give as gifts!!!

    The one and only time I did cash and carry, I just took extra products I had at home. New items in box I sold at 20% off. Used items were 50% off. Even though we didn't have any specific items, both me and the other gal sold at least $100 each! I personally would not purchase items to sell as cash and carry. Too much of an investment for me.
