The Goodies

I will be attending my very first Fort Smith Trade Show as an actual vendor and not a shopper this weekend.

The Government of the Northwest Territories - Industry, Tourism & Investment (GNWT - ITI) department kindly nominated my little faerie nursery as a potential crafter to be sponsored for a booth. At first, I was all woo hoo and I can't wait but I will be honest...I had NO clue how much work has had to go into Saturday's event.

My massive shopping spree from VistaPrint will certainly come in handy from the 6' banners all way down to all of my printed materials including sticky notes, magnets, rack cards, tri-fold brochures and business cards.

This will be the first time that I get to use my tablecloth that I had specially printed with my company colours and logo.

All of the new products lines will be making their debut ~ jewelry, Bubble Faeries and the Northern Faeries - Midnight Sun and Aurora. I will be bringing along samples of my little Faeries, Princes, Seed Pod Babies, Teacup Nurseries, Wooden Doors and the Trinket Chests.

So far....without adding any product yet...I am up to 4 rubber maids...oh and I will have to carry in the banners and their stands as well...oh and there are also two wooden shelving units that I am bringing along. Still hoping that they will be able to find an extra table so that the ladies have somewhere to do their sparkle tattoos from!!

I worked hand-in-hand with my daughter to come up with a gift basket to give away. We decided to title it The Flower Basket. It is plum full of faerie stuff and flower scented Avon goodies. This basket is also featuring a Bubble Faerie, hence the bubble bath :)

And yes, the ladies and I will be in full make-up and I have arranged to have a photographer available to a photo op!!

If you happen to live in the area, please stop by the booth to say 'hi' and introduce yourself.
