Lobby Guidelines

You've made it through the revolving doors and now you can mingle and mill about. If you feel like spamming, please head down the hall to the right to the RecRoom. But, if you'd like to meet people, chat about nothing in particular, you know...have polite conversation that doesn't seem to fit easily into any of the other rooms, this is the place!

The Lobby is not for serious debates, there are other areas for those types of conversations. It is more for relaxed chatting or discussing things that don't fit elsewhere. Politics, religion and philosophy have their own place on the site

But remember, always play by the rules: here

    So, I want to send an email to invite friends to come see my products Saturday. The Shriner's flea market is usually just thrift stuff. Crafters do attend but none of us sell a lot, that I can tell. I only have five dollars - the cost of an outdoor booth - so I need to make at least one sale, preferably more. I don't want to depend on the usual crowd - I've never sold a craft item there (sold some old oil once - that's it). So I need to attract customers who will be more likely to buy from me.

    I can also use my water aerobics email list. Quite a few people altogether - but how should I word it?

    I'm thinking I should include pics - and will.

    What kind of products do you sell?
    Are the people on your list mostly friends or mostly acquaintances?

      Scarves, handbags, memo boards (magnetic chalk or plain), placards, glass bird feeders, magnets

      Both ~ depends on which list.

        I ended up taking aluminum to the recyclers - which wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't had to rebag it all. Then there was free food at the Ford place - I was invited and I ain't turning down free ribs! Back to the church to grab things - and get left over pizza! Finally to the ice cream shop to shamelessly take advantage of the wifi and free refills (okay, there's a chocolate cup in my future...).



        Anyway, here's what I sent - minus pics.

I have a new selection of items including handbags (made to order), scarves (of course!), memo boards (chalkboard/magnetic, plain/magnetic and possibly whiteboard/magnetic - made to order only on the whiteboards), magnets (naturally) and more!

        The Market, in case you've never been, is every Saturday morning from 7:00 - 12:00 - plenty of time for both the early riser and the sleepy head - at the Fairgrounds on yada yada yada...


        Come by and say hi!
        Minus the 'yada', of course. What do y'all think?
