As you all know yesterday was the Bank Muscat Charity Fair which i have been on about since last month, it finally happened yesterday and i had a blast!
We were told to be there by 4pm to set up our tables before people start arriving at 5pm. I was given a table at the end of a line leading to no where lol next to a lady selling lots of scarves and another offering her services to help you set up buffet for invitations she provides the cultery and arranges the buffet, you have to provide the food. She ended up being my first customer 🙂
Anyway so i was placed next to nothing related to bags or accessories they were all on the other side of the football field lol so i start setting up the table and noticed that i was sort of unprepared for this i had no idea how i was going to arrange my organisers …. anyway i looked around other tables and saw that some ladies had brought with them colourful table clothes as opposed to the white ones provided (point taken for next time).
This is how i ended up arranging the table
The football field was filled with tables and there were lots of women setting up thier tables. Unfortunately i wasnt able to go around and have a look at what was on sale for obvious reasons (lesson learnt here defintely going to have someone with me next time, so i can browse lol).
By 5 the place started to fill up and i made my first sale!! was really estactic and thought this is going to be a breeze lol well i have to be honest i did get lots of compliments saying that this was different, original, practial and creative but 6 RO was very expensive!! i was so not expecting that but anyhow everyone is entitled to thier opinions.
Having said that i am pleased to say that i sold exactly half of the purse organisers, have a couple of customised orders and some business card holder orders too, which is great 🙂
So a big thanks to all thoes who stopped by and bought organisers. I met lovely ladies who follow my blog and told me that they enjoy reading it thank you ladies you know who you are 🙂 I also got to meet Mei Suwaid from Mei and Nihad Mohammed from Dollz which are two very talented Omani ladies. A couple of old friends of mine Sara and Mariam stopped by which was really nice, when we were younger we used to always hang out. It was so good seeing them after such a long time naturally they bought organisers 😉
A special thanks to my husband and my mother for giving me support and looking after the kids while i took care of business 🙂
Overall it was a wonderful experience, got to meet loads of people. I thank Bank Muscat for making it happen and i look forward to participating in simliar events in the future.
