Villagefetes NEWSLETTER FOR EVENT AND LEISURE BUSINESSES
Issue Number.126 September 2013
EVERYTHING FOR EVENT AND LEISURE RELATED BUSINESSES IN ONE PLACE
Welcome to this months stall holders edition of our newsletter. With the festive season fast approaching retailers big and small should be getting all geared up for the annual gift buying frenzy. Christmas is a great opportunity for stall holders selling niche and specialist gift products. Don't leave it to just December for selling Christmas items, canny consumers start putting gifts away from late October, so now is the time to introduce your seasonal lines.
Christmas Gift Packs Ready to Give.
Introducing seasonal gifts does not always mean having to buy in completely different new products away from the currant range that you sell. The secret is to look at your products and think about how to turn them into ready to go gifts. Look at the Bath Bombs above, all year round you may sell them loose but repackaged as ready to give gifts in festive containers or packaging may look more attractive to shoppers. The same principal can be applied to all loose sold items from sweets, fudges and cookies to bath towels and soaps.

Business Planning
Ideas for a Business Start Up
The secret of running a successful market or craft stall has to be in making the right choice of product line to be sold, the quality and end retail price plus importantly whether or not the product has "buy me now" appeal to as wide a customer base as possible. Great products placed on a stall won't always sell themselves without a little help from the stallholder, it's no good hiding behind the stall, greet the customers, show them your products, look alert and have bargains and discounts all worked out before you offer them.
Look the Part
It's a well known fact that consumers are attracted to well displayed products and prefer to purchase from professional looking traders. Your stall operators and staff need to make consumers feel confident in making a purchase from your stall, having easily indentfiable co-ordinated workwear will help in this.
