We have had a busy couple of weekends. Two car shows. One on May 12th and one on May 21st
I love being a vendor at car shows. The people you met are so fun and talkative. This year we haven’t had a chance to get our cars ready (mopars baby) to show, but my husbands helps me when he can. When I first set up at a car show (4 years ago) I was surprised that their stories weren’t just about cars. They LOVE their cars, don’t get me wrong, but when I first started I had made sure I had A LOT of car charms (they are classic charms now- no longer available) and ya know what? I didn’t sell no a one!
I have learned that just because you are a vendor at car show (or another event- mariachi event or a park opening -…….wherever) it’s not just about THAT event. It’s about PEOPLE. You have to make sure you have a little bit of everything because you never know what people are going to be attached to and want to create.
Usually car shows are on the weekend and when the weather is warm. Spring/summer and the occasional Fall/Winter show. Something is always happening in people’s life’s- birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduation, births etc. – so you have to be prepared. Again , have a little bit of everything (if you can’t then make sure you have your catalogs, TOM’s (take out menu) and customer information slips to gather customer info).
It was just a fun filled couple of weekends! Here are some pictures from the past weekends.
Hope you all have a great week!
