No tags? really?

One of the sellers at the fair on Saturday didnt have ANY tags at all or signage for her pieces of jewelry she was selling. Which totally amazed me. When it slowed for me she came and talked to me for a little bit. And said she was having issues.
I asked if she had price tags. She said no.
I told her why it was so important to have tags- a lot of people have the mind set IF I have to ask how much it is too much for me to afford.
Then I handed her 15 tags and lent her a pen.
Ten minutes later she had 2 sales.

It amazes me that something as simple as a tag that is easy to read and see can effect sales so drastically.
I made sure everything was tagged. I also kept track of what sold in my inventory sheets AND I didn't sit down unless there was a major lul and when it icked up I was up on my feet again.
little things like that go a long way when selling at a fair I have noticed.

  1. You're absolutely right! I forgot to tag a few last minute peices and had a million 'looksees' but no sales until I figured it out! My marked items, however sold well!
