Desertrose Posted December 23, 2009 Report Share Posted December 23, 2009 We're taking a little trip down south after Christmas to an area well known for all it's cute little country gift stores where we feel our candles might do well.Just wondering how to go about this?We'll take a selection of products with us to show them, some free scent samples perhaps, tarts, mini melts?Richard has spent a lot of time designing a brochure, which is great but then he said it will be just to show them then and there and if they want one he'll mail it to them - reason being it's going to cost a fair bit to print them out and they may want to simply look at the website instead?I was wondering if a photo album portfolio of the candles would be a better option to show them at the time - better quality photo's etc and then all the actual information - the whole kit and kaboodle, including scent descriptions etc, is readily accessed on the website?Also, do you think it's better to phone ahead of time to each store instead of just dropping in? Seems more polite that way, but then again you might be knocked back over the phone whereas face to face they might at least consider looking at what you've got, which might prove to be of interest ultimately to them?Up till now as the shops we supply are local we've just dropped in casually and started chatting and it's all kind of just "happened" for us.How do you guys approach this approaching shops thing?
