Avon Vendor Events
I have written blogs before about doing Avon vendor events, but the holidays are an especially wonderful time to showcase your Avon business in your community.
I have done outdoor events, church and school craft fair/vendor events, and flea markets. But nothing can compare to sharing my business with the people who I spend more than half of my life with at Springside Rehab. My full-time job is working as a Physical Therapist Assistant in a rehab facility and part-time Avon representative. On November 17th, we had a vendor event/craft fair at our facility. I love doing this event. Not only do I have the opportunity to share my Avon business with my work community and residents, but also get to share this day with the residents who work so hard making holiday wreaths and other beautiful crafts to sell. Our very dedicated Springside staff coordinated the event and everything ran smoothly.
Finding Vendor Events
For Representatives interested in doing vendor events, here’s what you need to do. Research your community newspapers or online to find events. Put some thought into what items to display at your table and make your presentation eye catching. I like to use small shelves or covered boxes to give my display some height, and decorate for the season with colorful garland, leaves, pumpkins, springtime flowers, or snowmen. Whatever you have for that season, make it work for you without having to spend extra money. It always looks great!
I love to make special gift items or baskets. It makes it easy for your customers to select the perfect gift, with no fuss. For this event, I made a stocking stuffer gift set including a pair of gloves, a hand cream and a lip balm, tied with a decorative ribbon. Let’s just say I should have made more! Get creative and think of something you think your customers will like.
I love doing these community events! It so rewarding to put a nice display together and have lots of visitors to your table. As you can see I have added a prize wheel for people to win free items just for stopping by. Feel free to use some of my ideas for your own displays.
