An idea that I am breathing life into is what I am calling a "lil' alice Trunk Show"!
What is a "lil' alice Trunk show"?
A hostess will open her home to her friends & family & me! I will share the story of lil' alice & I will bring lots and lots of fun & fabulous lil' alice products. The products that I have chosen for the lil' alice Trunk Shows are the products that are loved the most by the customers! It will be cash & carry, so friends & family will be able to take it home that day! That's fun! Unique items will only be at the lil' alice Trunk Shows, they will not necessarily be listed on Etsy!
The hostess receives a hostess gift for opening her home. She will also receive lil' alice cash which is based on a pyramid of how much product was sold at her lil' alice Trunk Show. If she would like a custom order, for example, a custom lil' alice apron, she is able to use her lil' alice cash towards that.
I am really excited about this but also very nervous, scared, afraid etc. I know these are normal feelings for taking a risk & stepping out onto new fresh handmade stitches. But when I can't shake a thought & things fall into place & time is made available to sew like a crazy lady, I better jump or I might miss the chance!
I am thankful for the friends that I have who have let me talk their ears off about such a crazy dream. I am thankful for friends who are in direct sales that give me wisdom on how the big home sales companies do it. I am thankful for the handmade friend who is taking big risks too & we can verbalize our dreams & our fears in the same sentence & encourage the other that she is capable of capturing that dream!
