Hello Vendors! We are about 3 weeks away from our market and hopefully you are well on your way to a beautifully stocked booth! I will be setting up my trial booth in my living room next week to make sure everything has a thoughtfully planned place!
The tip today is for that wonderful moment when someone decides they want to take one of your treasures home! They’ve chosen their purchase, you’ve handled the transaction…now what?
Nothing drags down the professional feel of your booth than throwing their item into a plastic grocery bag with no thought or care. You worked hard on your booth the past few months, and most likely they paid good money for your item, you want to finish the transaction between you snf your customer flawlessly and beautifully.
But don’t panic. This doesn’t have to be complicated, more work or expensive!
I absolutely love plain paper craft bags for wrapping up my purchases! They come in many sizes and colors and designs! I have found great prices on Amazon (click picture below), Ebay and sometimes even the DollarStore! Hobby Lobby has a great selection of sizes, and you can wait for their weekly sales or use a 40% off coupon!
If you find yourself with extra time and energy 🙂 you can always decorate the bags, add your logo or even pre tie some ribbon to the handles; make the bag fit your business style!
For my booth, I sell a lot of breakables and throwing them into a bag, even a nice one 🙂 doesn’t work. I have the added step of wrapping my items in tissue paper. But fear not, the Dollar Tree has tons….for a $1! I will definitely be loading up on a bunch!
