After the Show

The Rockmart Gift Show was yesterday and it went without a hitch! I am so proud of everyone involved in the show. From the vendors to all the helpers - everything went smoothly and we had a steady crowd all day. For pictures and more detailed info, please visit my website!

This week was extremely busy for me. Not only did I have the gift show to put together, I also had to cater Cartersville's ROOM WITHIN Holiday Open House (see photos below). They had a great turn out and the food went over well. I would like to thank Renee and Heather for using my catering business and for the generous gift they gave me (a wonderful large tray.)

On the same night as the Room Within party, I traveled to Cedartown to speak and have meeting food for the Delta Kappa Gamma Psi Chapter. This is a wonderful group of teachers, retired and active who meet each month. They are an international professional sorority for educators. The ladies were extremely nice to me and seemed to enjoy the presentation (and the food.) Thanks to Vivian Stitt for inviting me to speak.

The Friday before, I participated the the fall festival at Burnt Hickory Elementary School in Paulding County. Although the weather was cold, windy and a little rainy, the night went well and I met a great new vendor, Mrs. Shannon Crater (who I recruited to attend the Rockmart Gift Show). She does cute necklaces crafted from Hemp and jewelry beads. Good luck to her as she ventures out to try new shows!

Whew! Yes, I am exhausted, but satisfied. I hope to take a break this week and catch up with everything I have put aside as I have been so busy, but I'll take more work too! See ya next week.

GIFT SHOW reclocated to new venue PLEASE READ!

Due to complications with our previous venue, our holiday preview show has been moved to the Fellowship Hall at the 1st Methodist Church in downtown Rockmart. With the change in location, the rental fee was drastically reduced and The Kendal Companies, in association with Mason Gift, Inc. proudly announces that there will be NO booth rental fee for this event. We do hope that if you participate, you will consider a $10 donation to the church instead. It is not mandatory and you will not be turned away if you do not donate. This venue will allow a more intimate setting and provide the vendors a broader spectrum of flexibility. This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your business to gain local exposure.

The show will still be held on Saturday, November 15th from 12pm - 5pm. So far we have items ranging from designer purses and jewelry to handmade cards and gifts. The Kendal Catering Company will have small plates of catered foods and beverages on hand. We are still looking for local artists, crafters, food vendors and small business owners with limited advertising resources.

If you or someone you know currently has their own small business, whether it's arts and crafts, fine gifts, or offers creative classes - this a great time to get EXPOSURE at a low cost. We suggest having on-hand products to sale, have an entire display for "window shoppers" to see what your business offers, provide order forms for custom made or wholesale orders, or simply place your business cards out and "meet-and-greet" with potential customers.

Keep shoppers LOCAL by giving them a preview of what your business has to offer.
Support your local artisans and business owners by forwarding this email to your friends family. For all vendors, we will be sending out E-vites to this event next week. Send us your email addresses and we will forward this E-vite to your friends, family and business associates FOR FREE! Admission for customers will be one can of food for the church's food pantry - which provides food to local families. This is also a DONATION only contribution and will not be required for entry.
Whether we have 2 vendors or 20, our Holiday Preview Show promises to be a relaxed, casual afternoon full of EXPOSURE for you and a great pre-holiday gift buying experience for your customers.

TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT, please contact Kendal at the address below. We will reserve you a table and space on a first come first reserved basis.
