Thanks for your tips.Do you have any opinions on signage? I've been told that it's important to have your business name visible. I've also been told that seating for your customers is nice to have?
The first question I ask is "Where are your lights?" The most important thing in a successful display are lights. You cannot have too much light.
Even during the day? But you're right..I didn't even think about that. I can understand how this is important for little things, like jewelry, to make it sparkle.
When you're talking about a friend patronizing you, you're talking about a shill. that's kinda unethical in my book.
Well if you put it that way..you make it sound bad!
Dress nice. Don't go looking like you're going to clean out the closets when you get home. "Dress for success". If you're outside get rid of the sunglasses. And SMILE!! Talk to your customers. Thank them for coming out to the show.
People keep saying this! I will ditch my sunnies...I probably would have worn them but now I do understand how standoff-ish you may look to someone.
