Once again, Penquis and MaineStream Finance are partnering with the Piscataquis Santa Project to provide a great opportunity for micro business owners. We are holding a Harvest Trunk Show (a trunk show is a special sale, in which vendors present merchandise directly to a special group of customers at an unique venue, www.wikipedia.com), so that businesses can market and sell their products and/or services.
For only $15, vendors can set up shop at Penquis in Dover-Foxcroft on Thursday evening, November 13, 2014 from 5 – 7 pm. Setup time will be from 2-4:45 pm and the show will start promptly at 5 pm. Rental fee is for a 4’ space, however there is an additional $10 fee for electricity and/or $5 fee for a table. All space rental proceeds from the show will go to benefit the annual Piscataquis Santa Project, which provides warm winter clothing and a special gift for local children at Christmastime.
Vendors should plan to offer shoppers a $20 cash deal. The purpose of this Show is to support both the businesses and the overall community. Marketing plans for this event will include press releases, social media and internet marketing, flyers and other forms of advertising.
Mark your calendar, select your cash mob opportunity you will offer shoppers, complete and mail the enclosed application with your payment to us today. Hurry! Space is limited. Application deadline is 10/31/14.
Feel free to email or call me with any question you may have. We look forward to having you and your business be a part of the Harvest Trunk Show.
