Attending Vendor Events
We just celebrated our one-year anniversary of being in business! This is a huge milestone for us as we have g
rown so much - we started out just doing small vendor events and working out of our house. Now, we've grown and have our own office and regularly do business with people in our community outside of these events. We do plan to open our own storefront in the future, so stay tuned! We still attend these smaller events where we got our start from so today we're going to talk a little about them.
Attending vendor events has been an amazing experience for us. We love meeting new members of the community, connecting with customers that have been buying from us since we started our business, and being able to share our products with a wider audience. Every event is different; sometimes it's an outdoor market surrounded by other vendors selling their wares, other times it's a small-town event with live music and food. No matter the event or location, we make sure to arrive an hour early to set up our 10'x10' tent and three 6'-tables. Since we've added our new portable laser engraver to our lineup, we always bring it along so that customers can have their products personalized on the spot.
At the end of the day, we spend 25-30 minutes breaking down our set-up and packing everything into our SUV. We love attending these events, as it gives us a chance to meet customers face-to-face and get feedback on new products or ideas for future events. The experience has been invaluable in growing our customer base and connecting with people from all over the Plant City, Lakeland, and Bartow area.
We plan on continuing to attend vendor events in the months ahead, so be sure to check out our website for upcoming event dates! We look forward to seeing you there!
