WOW – my BOGO (buy one, get one free) event on Saturday was a HUGE success and my customers went home with over $2,500 in FREE stuff. You se,e for every dollar they spent on retired items (including stamps, Big Shot items, paper, ribbon, buttons and more!) they picked the equal value from the NEW catalogue for FREE. They all seemed to have a good time and I know I certainly did. This is the one event where I can catch up with everything that's going on in their lives too (for customers that I don't see on a regular basis at clubs) and I was so grateful they made the effort to attend.
Here are some of my happy customers (Sonya, Doreen & Helen) with their loot. Doreen said "this is great – I go home with a bag of stuff PLUS I get an order will all new stuff for free" These gals have been with me from almost Day 1 (10 years ago) and I love seeing them when they come out to events.
The Door Prize was valued at over $100 and included the new In Color cardstock and ribbon plus a brand new Stamp Pad (redesigned and fabulous!), the new Essentials Piercing Pack and Stampin' Pierce Mat, Argyle Embossing Folder, Delicate Designs Embossing Folder, Faceted Buttons, In Color Delicate Doilies, A Cherry on Top Hostess Stamp Set and a free class of your choice (value $25). WOW – the winner was Doreen Lore! Congratulations Doreen – I'll put all your goodies in with your order when it arrives.
We also made four make n' take using all new products and everyone seemed to love them.
My customers were most excited about the new stamp pad design – LOVED how you just have to tap lightly (and I mean lightly) on the pad to get amazing ink coverage on your stamp and then just lightly press to the paper. It is pretty amazing!
There is one spot left in the 2nd group of each of the 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon and 1/4" Grosgrain Stitched Ribbon Product Shares and 3 spots left in the Designer Series Paper Share. You can read all about them here.
Thanks to my amazing helpers – Farah Byrne and Alicja Krysiuk – the day went by quickly and pretty organized considering the excited frenzy of the new catalogue and all the FREE stuff.
I'll be starting a fun new "contest" that will run each week for the summer. It's called Summer Sizzlin' Spectacular and more details will be coming soon. Suffice to say that each week they'll be a challenge that earns you free tickets for a great prize. So make sure you check in with my blog each Monday (starting June 18th) to see the "challenge" and the prize.
