Yesterday, was my first opportunity to set up as a vendor at a Scrapbook Retreat hosted by Scrap Sistaz. It was held at the Sheraton Resort at Wild Horse Pass - a GORGEOUS resort on the Gila Indian reservation, just south of town. I got a little lost finding it. I assumed, it was the hotel right by the main casino. NOPE, luckily, a nice lady saw me struggling with my stuff and told me I was in the wrong place. It was a just a bit further down the road and I would have NEVER guessed it was there.
I brought my stuff, got it all set up - and forgot to take a picture. D'OH! I brought my laptop - so that I could show off My Digitial Studio, and my Big Shot, a CUTE make-n-take bookmark all the catalogs. I made "new catalog survival kits" (they have post-it notes, a pen, a wish list, my business card and chocolate in it) I had all the promotional flyers and of course I brought Chocolate.
My table was next to the FUNNEST woman, Bernadette, a jewelry designer. We had so much fun between customers, covering each others tables when it was time for a potty break. She is incredible! We decided that if we do another one of these retreats, we just have to be Table buddies again!
My experience business-wise, was an interesting one. I'm chalking a lot up to learning - since I do have a lot to learn. I gained a few new contacts and had a few sales. I'm already thinking of things to do different/better next time - and I have a ton of questions for my upline and things I need to double check in the Demo Manual. But I had a good time, had a few sales, and I'm learning a lot. I made some great contacts and made new friends.
