We had an ‘all hands on deck club bonding event’ on Tuesday, December 4tth, otherwise known as the Home Products Club Sample Sale!
During the semester, club members reached out to vendors to request samples, and they answered the call! Inventory came in from so many generous showrooms (Loftex, Sunham, Rizzy Home, to name a few) with beautiful options, all proceeds going toward future club activities.
Not knowing what to expect, a few of us hung around after class to help set up (we transformed our classroom into “the shop”!) and when we saw how many mugs, plates, towels, placemats, pillows (you get it, right?) were coming out of the bubble wrap, everyone put their merchandising hats on and started styling.
Customers lined up early and it was worth the wait! Candles that were regularly $40ish were $10. Plates, $2; rugs, $20. So many bargains, and so much fun for all of us to see where all this learning is leading. Someday our own products will be what people are lining up to buy!
The sale lasted an hour, which flew by, and we are already looking forward to a bigger, better one next time around.
