Vendor RAFFLE CARDS
NEW in 2013 FASHION MANIA will provide VENDOR RAFFLE CARDS to shoppers as a way to get more exposure at your table. For each table they visit, the Vendor will stamp or initial the card (one time per shopper) after they listen to your pitch about your product. For each card they fill up, they will put their contact information on the back side and place in the Vendor Raffle to try to win a prize.
Vendors will donate a small item of their choice such as a product, gift certificate, coupon and place it on our Raffle Table. Shoppers will place their Raffle Cards in your bags (also provided by FASHION MANIA) next to your raffle. Vendors at the end of the sale get to keep their bags (to help create a mailing list) and will contact the winner directly to mail/deliver their prize.
A sponsor is a business that donates an item to help support our cause. Usually they donate a raffle item or supplies that we use at our event. They may event exchange advertising with FASHION MANIA. In that respect we will provide a Website Ad - Side Bar for 1 year for free or discount for same value of donation.
