My experience from vendor shows is to offer smaller-priced items for sale, have lots of smaples and business cards to hand out. Maybe even have a litttle table set up for someone to sit down and try the 3D lashes (you will have to find throw away wands).

Thank you. I was thinking in the same direction. I am going to order banners and that way I will have them and reps that actually network can use them too if they wish. I wondered about the lashes, I can get sample applicators, you found the results worth it? I know the brushes aren't designed the same......

It may be difficult to find lash brushes for the fibers.

Another fun idea would be to start drawing on your face with a Sharpie. Then commence covering it up with the liquid foundation.

When it gets busy and there are too many people at the table I thought it might be a nice trick to put a tablet or laptop that is secured to the table somehow so that people can watch demo videos while they wait to ask questions. Maybe a basket with a small dum dums lollipop flavors to match and tie to the samples?

We have a huge wine tasting vendor opp every year and the lipstain is always great for that

My best sellers at my last vendor event were mascara, lip gloss, and liquid foundation.
The Liquid Foundation is super easy to sell when you sample it on the inside of the customers wrist. It allows them to see got it covers and they love the way it feels so silky on the skin. My last vendor show was early December before it all went out of stock.
