A BIG THANK YOU to all who participated in and supported TH&SG in our most recent sales event. The wind and rain held off and the weather was great!
The Museum had removed all the old benches in our corner allowing us to expand our Boutique space – making room for our exceptional fiber art display produced by 22 member-sellers.
TH&SG Yarn Stormtroopers set up three wonderful post people to welcome our customers. A total of 35 Guild members physically supported our efforts – setting up, selling, demonstrating, and taking down our Boutique.
The TMA had made some changes: a higher booth fee, eliminating the TMA commission % and directing each booth to have their own cashier. We were well prepared with assigned cashiers, a cash box and a credit card system. We had 100 paying customers with transactions totaling $7,562.00. TH&SG commission was 30% for a total of $2,268.00. Our customers were thrilled with the changes and the “one stop shopping”
Special kudos to Jim Gilbreath, Jane’s husband, for his invaluable help with set up and take down. And special kudos to Jody Williams for loaning the Guild her Smart phone, giving us a portable WiFi for credit card sales.
