Tips

o Bring change and something to securely keep your money in
o Offer samples, it attracts attention to your booth and can increase sales
o Tables that look nice tend to attract more people (table cloths, flowers, etc.)
o Signage: Consider a sign for your booth, and also for your products (with price)
o Consider accepting credit card, especially if you are selling items that are more
expensive. It’s easy to accept credit cards on your cell phone these days, by signing
up for services like ‘square’ (squareup.com/ca)
o You might need to supply bags, in case people don’t bring their own
