Are the vendors all selling handmade items?
The majority of our vendors (about 85%) are all selling handmade items. We have a few “home-party” vendors like Premier Design Jewelry, Watkins, Pampered Chef etc….
What other things will be going on at the sale?
We will be having hourly raffles, shopper incentives, bake sale table, lunch for purchase, live music entertainment from students of Crosshill Christian School as well as other musicians.
What are shopper incentives?
We reward you for shopping! When you come through the doors you will be given a shopper card and each dollar you spend throughout the show at various booths the vendor will mark off per dollar your purchase amounted to. Once you have spent $25 and your card is all marked off you can bring your shopper incentive card to the front CAST booth and receive a free raffle ticket for your chance to win some great prizes that are raffled off hourly.
How much are raffle tickets and do I need to be present to win?
The tickets are $1 each or 7 for $5. We have some great raffles that we will be raffling off every half hour of the show. You do not need to be present to win. Just write down your contact info on your ticket and we will contact you if you won. You can then pick it up at the school the following week.
How do you advertise for this show?
We will have signs and flyers up around town as well as postcards at other stores and shows in the area. We will be advertising on local radio stations as well as in the local papers. We get our event on all the community event sites. We also use facebook, our website, and word of mouth.
What is this show a fundraiser for?
This is a fundraiser for Crosshill Christian School. The CAST (community advocates for students and teachers) group are the ones who organize the show. The booth fees, sales from raffles, Christmas wreaths, lunch, bake sale, etc…all go to help in a variety of areas of the school, students, and teachers. Thank you for your contribution!
