Beadphoria is proud of their student Fran who will be doing the first public sale of her jewelry at the end of this month. Whether you are a seasoned professional who has done many shows or you are about to venture for the first time, this checklist should help you remember all the items you need to be a success!
___ Business cards – bring more than you think you will need. Drop one in with each purchase and leave some out on the table for people to pick up.
___ Money Holder & Change – At least $50 in various amounts to make change is a good start.
___ Sales Receipts & Calculator – you can buy blank sales receipts at your local office supply store.
___ Extra Pens, Scissors, & Tape – always good to have on hand!
___ Bags & Boxes for customer purchases.
___ Table Covering – Fabric remnants from your local sewing center are a cheap way to make your table stand out from the rest and help highlight your jewelry.
___ Displays for your jewelry.
___ Lighting & Extension Cords – Some locations need extra light for people to see the true colors of jewelry designs. One or two portable Ott lights are helpful.
___ Candy! Putting a bowl of candy out can help attract customers to your table.
___ Mailing List – Have a place where people can sign up to find out the latest about your business.
