This is our only respite before we enter our busiest time of the year. The upcoming show season, combined with the holiday push on Etsy, makes for one very busy business here at Every Day a Promise. We have less than a month before the first of these shows, and preparations are well underway.
The biggest push is to create an inventory of the newest products. This year that would include barrettes, beaded infinity scarves, and now we are making beaded key chain fobs. As many variations of these items as possible will be created in order to make as many choices as we can for our potential customers. The more unique the items are, the more they catch the eyes of the people shopping in our show venues. Traffic is only good if they feel to stop at your booth and shop for a minute or two, and when there appears to be plenty of interesting and different items to see, they take a minute on their walk around the show to pay you a visit. This is one of our newer beaded scarves. They are quite popular!
After our next show, which lasts for three days, we only have one weekend with no shows before we do three shows in a row on three consecutive weekends leading up and into December. It seems like we still have preparation time, but the time will fly by and before we know it, we will be up to our necks with creating, packing, loading, setting up, meeting new people, taking down, unloading etc, not to mention taking photos, listing and filling internet orders.
Here's to the Show Season! We are so excited! It's our favorite time of the year!
