A Great Day

HockinsonBoothThanks to the Hockinson High School Boosters, parents, and students for a very successful holiday bazaar yesterday.

I’ve talked to many crafters and other vendors about what makes an event work in terms of sales.  The more experienced vendors say there is no way to predict it – that sometimes you sell a lot and sometimes you don’t.  But on analyzing my experience this year I notice a pretty strong (and unexpected) correlation:  The smaller my booth space is, the better the sales.  The width of my booth this time was 6 feet, which I’ve done before, but it was only about 5 feet deep.  All of my boxes and supplies are hidden under the table, so I had to sit sideways, squeezed between the table and the back wall.  By a pretty good measure, this was my best sales event of the season!


About Greg Marshall

I am a retired electronics engineer and after a few months of enjoying my leisure I began to miss doing product development. My astronomy hobby always needed new solutions to unique problems, so I decided that whenever I came up with a good solution I would try to make it available to others.
