View Full Version : Craft Shows & Fairs

Okay Ladies. I signed up under someone who approached me through another business but thank you for all of the inquiries and help.

How are craft shows/fairs etc. It seems the cost of a booth here in Kansas City is around $50. Is it worth it? Do you have products to sell or have them order through the catatlog?

I will be having my first Booth set up July 4th. Hopefully it turns out! Mine cost $100 to reserve, but it is for July 4th and one near Halloween.

I have been busy setting up the summer! I have a booth the 27th & 28th this month and then get 1 day to rest and start a County Fair from the 30th -July 5th. then another booth at a Fire Dept. Open House August 1st and another County Fair the week of Labor Day.
Whew! I can't wait!!! I love doing fairs!! I have so far 3 ladies on my team to help with the bigger fairs and we will have stock and take orders. I mainly do it to get bookings and it's an awesome way to get some local team members.
When I send in an application, I also send along a copy of the catalog, Scent/Warmer of the Month flyer and scent sample. It helps to send a pic or 2 of your table too.
I'm hoping by the Fall people around here will know what Scentsy is! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley20.gif
Like Ann said at the World Tour, "let everyone in your town know that you are the Scentsy Lady" !!! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

I am in the Kansas City area and all the events vary. The larger shows will be expensive, however I have found some of the smaller events work pretty well.
