Making a mistake??? HELP

Recommended Posts

I have my first craft show on Saturday. I had thought that I would not bring with me any scents that weren't fall or Christmas types. I didn't think that people would buy springy scents around the holidays. To you veterans. should I bring some other scents as well or stick to the holidays ones. I think that I have 12 or so scents that I am bringing.

I have my first in November and I'm definately taking some non-seasonal scents.

It's my first time 'out there' with the paying public, so I want them to see what else I have to offer.

Others that I'm not taking, I'll take a few melts in that scent so they can smell and order ;) call it a 'sniff n buy' lol

People can't find the spring or summer scents right now, so if they see them they will buy them up. I think it might be because they have been saving money for Christmas presents. I stopped giving Christmasy stuff years ago because people could only bring them out for the holidays. I want something they can sit out all year around. So take what you have plus holiday scents. Good Luck!

Take 'em.

Ditto. I sell more Love Spell candles than Christmas anything. Girls in their 20's come over and go "OH MY GOD! This lady has love spell candles!!!! Check it out!!! I should get one for ~whoever~ for Christmas!!!" and they buy them up as fast as I can stock them.

If you don't have it there, that girl who just LOVES the love spell (or whateverkind) candles will probably just walk on by.

I always make sure I have at least 2-3 of EVERYTHING I sell, and I have a little sign that says "Can't find the size of candle you want? Ask me, I'll ship it to you" and for craft shows, I will generally ship thing to people for free. If you do something nice for them for that first sale, they'll come back.
