I just have a quick question for you all. I have the opportunity to be vendor at our towns 1st annual community event. It is only a $25 deposit. Now my question is if I do this, do I go all out, cookies, mini cakes, cupcakes, mini cupcakes, etc..?
I am pretty sure there will be nobody else there with sweets, its at the end of June so the weather may not be so bad humidity wise, and I think would be huge advertisement. I would love to open a specialty sweet shop some day in the near 2-3 years.
Would you do it?
I would absolutely do it!! I would not do so many things that it stresses me out, especially if I was going to be the only vendor offering sweets. Just do enough to show your versatility, and enjoy yourself!! Have fun, and I wish you much luck!
I sure would, and if it's going to be the only sweets booth, I would try some pastries also. Sounds like a fun thing to do!
Only if you're licensed. Then by all means, go for it.
$25 is a tiny fee to pay for that kind of advertisement. I'd be all over that one. Think about keeping it kind of simple though. A cupcake tower would probably be an eye catcher. What ever your specialty is. Also you can have pictures displayed in inexpensive frames on the table for a nice effect.
Thanks all for the replies. One mentioned the part of being licensed. That is one thing, I am not licensed, our state is one of the few that does not require to be licensed until you make a certain dollar amount in sales.
So that is one part I have reservations about.
you could simply explain that to people should they ask...go for it and enjoy. Maybe you'll hit that $ amount with all the exposure you get, then you can become licenced
You bet your last cupcake I would. Jump at any chance like that, that you can. It would be wonderful advertising for you. good luck, and post pics of your table.
