SO the Vendor Event that DD organized at our church went really well. Table rental fees made $335 for the church's fund. I set up the room for 15 vendors, and 12 showed up. I don't know what happened to the 3 no shows but I hope all is well with them.
I chose to have refreshments for our vendors-sandwiches and snacks and bottled water-they liked that too.
We also are pretty sure we're going to do it again in the fall. Our vendors said they see good sales in the weeks before Thanksgiving and of course around Christmas, so I think the fall might be good. We were a little bit heavy on the cosmetic vendors so we'll try to limit that to maybe 3 next time too. I think all the vendors had at least one sale and interest in their products, so that's a good thing.Those wooden sign boards look good, easily readable from down the block! YAY! Better placement nearer the corner would be good I think though.
