Craft Fair is on as scheduled
The Lancer Marketplace Craft Fair, held on Saturday and Sunday December 7-8, is only two weeks away. We have some really unique crafters exhibiting this year. We are excited about the opportunity to find some great handmade holiday gifts. The time for heavy promotion is upon us.
Marketing: Please print out the attached flyer for the Lancer Marketplace Craft Fair and ask businesses you know if they would be willing to put it in their window. Crafters decide which fairs to attend based on attendance figures. If we have a low turnout of shoppers, word gets around the crafting community that this event is not worthwhile. Please also share with friends. We also will have yard signs to be placed at the entrances to large neighborhoods the week of the fair to help drive traffic our way. If you would be willing to place such a sign in your neighborhood (and can assure that it will not be removed), please let me know. Watch for a post on the Lancer Facebook page too that you can share with your social network.
Marketplace Bake Sale: Last year we tried adding our own bake sale to the Craft Fair. It was a big success. People really liked having some munchies to take around with them as they shopped. They kept the kids occupied too. This was a very low cost, high profit program for the band. We are asking band parents to bake something and divide it up into single serving baggies that we can sell for ≈$1/ea. Baked goods need to be delivered to school Saturday morning December 7 by 8:00 a.m. We also need someone to be in charge of this table who likes making merchandising decisions and can make pricing decisions on the fly.
VolunteerSpot: While our band students shoulder much of the responsibility for running Marketplace, we still need parents to pitch in to support this event. There are volunteer opportunities on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Please click here: http://vols.pt/3isgot to sign up for Market Place on @VolunteerSpot today!
Thank you for your continued support!
