Which door prize?


Mar 7, 2006
A friend of mine is having a creative memories scrapbook crop and wants me to give away a door prize from PC. My question is what should I give away, I have a food chopper, garlic press, cutting board, corer and zester extra.

My DH says if it is a lot of people do the chopper but if just a few do the garlic press.

I am hoping to get some bookings from this crop but may get none, I am thinking about offering a free gift with every show booked from this event, maybe the mini whisk, spatula or twix-its from the supply order.

Any advice/input would be greatly appreciated.

Only give a gift for those that are hosting a show. Do a drawing if your going to use the large item (chopper) or one for everyone if its under $5! Gift the gift at the show.

I would do a personal gift certificate. Offer a reasonable amount like $10 or $15 dollars. That should generate an order and a possible future booking.

I like that idea too....those that book a party get entered into the drawing for the chopper...which of course you could do another item too, and you can always say they will get that free item when they host their party.


Door prizes?

I've never been to a crop where they have door prizes unless they were from companies that sell scrapbook items. I think you'll get a lot more mileage by offering incentives to book a show. If you want to do a gift I would do a gift certificate or one of the small items and then have people enter the drawing by filling out the information slips.

Are you going to have a chance to talk to them or is she just asking for donations?

As a scrapbooker, one item I would demonstrate is the tool turn about. It's great for storing scissors, hole punches, pens, adhesives, ruler etc in addition to making a great kitchen tool organizer:) . Maybe ask your friend to take some of her tools and set them up in your turn about to give a visual of how it could be used.

You could also offer any simple additions pieces you have to be borrowed for snacks.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

I love the idea of the gift certificate. If they don't use it I won't be out any money, I know at the crop we went to my friend won the Mary Kay gift certificate, she has no intention of using it.

MicheleC, you and I think alike. I actually have all my scrapbook pens/tools in a turnabout already. I have been promoting this as a use for over a year to my friends, way before I even started selling. A few people at that crop I went to commented on it, now I can actually start selling it to them.

I am not sure how the set up is on this crop. I am definitely taking some books and order forms though and have a PC set up at my scrap station spot as well. I might do that everyone that books a show gets a small gift and entered in the drawing for the chopper, that is a great idea.

Thanks ladies, I knew you could help me out.

Anytime you try to secure bookings by offering an incentive, be sure that they don’t get their gift (whatever you offer) until they hold their show. Then, add it to their order. Everyone wins.
