A Habit for Young Entrepreneurs

Sooner or later, young entrepreneurs especially those who create their own products, whether these are food or non-food, will find themselves joining fairs and bazaars. It is thus very advisable to visit and get a feel of  events like these before actually joining as a seller in one. You can check out the busy hours, how sellers react to multiple buyers buying at the same time, the packaging of products similar to yours, the sales and marketing pitch of fellow sellers, the buying behaviors of customers, etc. Honestly, no matter how many online materials about fairs and selling you have read, nothing beats going to a trade fair and seeing how bazaar works personally. So whether you are ready to join or not, make it a habit to visit these trade fairs. And Christmas season is the best time to do just that.

One upcoming event is the 10a Alabama Handmade Arts and Crafts Fair.

This will happen on 12 noon of November 10 to 7PM of November 11, 2012. 

Here is the map for your guidance and you can click on this link
for further details.

Remember though that you will go there not to copy ideas but just to observe how joining bazaar works and of course to get motivated to become more creative with your own products. And because it is also an ideal time for Christmas shopping, why not buy and support our fellow crafters, too.

I got this very inspiring photo from facebook of Travel Finds Shop about buying from small local entrepreneurs:

And oh, by the way. Don't forget to like our facebook page Elle Goes Into Business at Facebook .

I will announce there several discount schemes for the opening of my business on November 15.

Thank you very much!

My Product Finds at The Good Trade PH Summer Fair

I was lucky to have time to visit the first kick of The Good Trade Summer Fair at UP Town Center last April 13, 2019. It was also my first time to visit the mall dubbed as the place “where great minds come together to shop and dine” which I had been planning to visit since last year, so it was two points for me that day, hooray!
So armed with my list I went there like an eco-warrior aiming for the kill! But no violence here! It’s just me trying to end my habit of using single-use plastic and disposable items that are harmful to the environment.
And now without any further ado, here are my fantastic finds! Take a look and see which ones you'd like to buy too, and, just maybe, you’d find the inspiration to put up an eco-friendly business in the future to sell zero-waste items as well.
