Well who'd have thought?
A good friend of mine asked if I'd like to do a stall at her local village hall for a ladies evening they were having. The evening consisted of a couple of fashion shows and numerous stalls selling a variety of products along with wine and food.
We got there about 6:00 last evening and set up quickly as the first ladies started arriving about 6:45pm! At first I thought it may be quiet and that I wouldn't sell a lot but the people and the location were nice so that's half of the battle straight away.
Anyway, it turned out to be a lovely evening and an extremely profitable one in the end. In 2 hours I sold more than I usually sell on an all day fair! Everything was selling, especially the new products and I had numerous compliments on my range of stock. I was really pleased they liked what they saw! I even had people saying, 'are you sure this price is right' LOL Gotta love well priced wholesalers!
We were only asked for a £5 donation for the stall but at the end of the evening I had done so well I donated an extra £5 to the fund the evening was for. The ladies seemed really pleased to receive the extra donation but I feel it's only fair on such a good night. I hope to be invited to more like it!
I've also got a spot booked for a large Christmas fair locally and all in a good cause...a local baby's charity (Zoe's Place) so will be looking to stock up with a new autumn/winter range of things soon.
Onwards and upwards...hopefully :-) These were yesterday's top sellers!
