If are dreams stay dreams, they never become reality! I don't want to have regrets.
In the midst of anxiousness, nerves & fear..... I put on my Brave Boots!
So, you are asking what is a lil' alice Trunk Show?
First, let me tell you what it is not! It's not where I pull my car into a hostess driveway & you shop lil' alice from the trunk of my car! True story, that is what my Mother thought was a trunk show. So I needed to squash that idea in case anyone else was thinking the same thing!
Instead, I lil' alice Trunk Show is where I bring all of my handmade products, like aprons, zippered pouches, tote bags etc. to the hostess house & her girlfriend's, aunts, mom, cousins, in laws come & shop. It's cash (or credit card) & carry! Everything that is purchased is taken home that night. No shipping costs! No patiently waiting for the awesome order to come in!
What is lil' alice?
First things first, I am a one chick show! Everything that is online in my Etsy shop, everything that will be at a lil' alice Trunk Show is made by me. I don't have extra hands in the shop cutting fabric & designing new ideas. Since I am the show from start to finish, I am limited on the hours in my day & the amount of items that I make. I hustle in the shop. I can get a lot done in an "assembly line" type of production! But I also get bored with the same fabrics too, which is why many of the items are limited quantities!
Why should you attend/host a lil' alice Trunk Show?
There are perks for the hostess. More on that soon!
You should attend a show because there will be items there that are not readily available in the shop. And there are a few of the items waiting for the debut Trunk Show! If you follow me on Facebook, you can see behind the scene peeks of what I am up to!
How do you get invited to a lil' alice Trunk Show?
There are 2 ways. You host a Trunk Show or you know someone who is hosting a Trunk Show.
Trunk Shows are set up as an event through Facebook!
Who is hosting the debut Trunk Show?
Jen Karolak! She has been a lover of lil' alice from the beginning. I appreciate all of her support through the past 4 years. She gives me great insight & feedback & she always tells me that she is getting lil' alice into the hands of her co-workers & friends! Thanks Jen! I look forward to our evening together!
