(Holliston, Massachusetts USA)
I usually do home parties so displaying my jewelry at a local fair was a big step for me. I was nervous. I grew up in this town so I had to do this right and be as professional as possible.
It was an inexpensive spot in the fair on a town celebration day. A beautiful sunny and unusually warm day. I was inside a hall with other vendors such as Mary Kay, a bake sale and a hair salon. A few people were interested and some friends came and supported me.
I brought a friend who shared my table area and sold her handmade decorated shutters. It was great to have her there to help me but her stuff did not sell. On a good note, I made a connection with the salon next to me and now I sell my jewelry there!
What do you think I can do to improve my second time?
I know I have a lot of stuff and am thinking of doing 2-3 tables next time in a “U” shape. I have only 1 trade show table cover. If I put boxes under for height, it makes it shorter and I can’t cover my stuff under the table.
How do you fix that problem?
