Summer Fayre at Mosborough Primary School

On Saturday 7th July I attended the annual summer fayre at Mosborough Primary School. I had prepared my event well in advance and I had taken a great selection of cards, gift wrap and stationery items with me.

Thankfully the weather stayed dry and bright, but I didn’t want to take the risk of an outdoor stall and opted to have a table in one of the classrooms. The event was very popular and plenty of people were interested in my products. Many had heard of Phoenix Trading before and bought some cards. If they didn’t purchase anything then I made sure people left with a brochure to take home, and everyone was invited to take part in the free prize draw for £20 of vouchers to spend.

I also displayed a message board for people who may be interested in joining my team of Independent Phoenix Traders, it gives some short snappy and great reasons to join. Whether you are in the UK, France, Australia, New Zealand or USA then you can join my team of Phoenix Traders and run your own greeting card and stationery business like me too, click here to find out more.

I spoke to lots of other stall holders who were in the same classroom too, there were people there from Usbourne Books, Partylite, and handmade jewellery makers too. Everyone reported great sales on the day, I took around £22 which isn’t too bad but if I had taken the risk of an outside stall with more footfall then I could have sold more. Trust the weather to stay dry! I mainly sold cards, but paperchains, and family organisers did well too! I took lots of contacts away from the prize draw, so maybe more good will come from that in future.

I’m looking for more events and for home party events from now on, its such a great way to meet new people and drive up sales. If you’re interested in hosting a Phoenix Card Party at home with friends then please contact me here. Party Hosts will receive 25% off their own order.
