It was to be the first one I have had since December so I was excited. It was post poned until this Thursday. I was more than delighted when I went to pick up my box of jewelry and over 50 pendants sold! Thank you JoAnne you re a blessing!
I call them Box Parties but Trunk Show? Box Party? Who cares what I call it. I especially like this group of ladies because they take the box and I leave it for the day- no work for me at all other than the Box Prep and store edit I do. I put over 100 items in my shop in edit plus the other 150 or so I had left in my party box. That gives me a nice healthy batch to give the ladies to look at. I constantly add items to these plastic flip top boxes, then when I get a call for this type of show I am off with plenty of stock all priced and named.
The hostess of the box party gets 10% merchandise sales and if her party goes over $400 then she gets a bonus of $25 more dollars to spend. I have had excellent results with this type of sale, low stress and high reward!
I think I will be writing a step by step on this sort of show so stay tuned.
