Lots of fun ways to build anticipation

to Christmas in your consignment, resale, thrift shop! Here are some of my found favorites:

I love this one. Imagine it BIG in your window, and the first person in every morning has the honor of snipping off a bit of Santa’s beard (with appropriately decorated special scissors of course) and having their photo posted on your blog or a special Facebook album…

Here’s a way to get folks in, first thing in the morning: Have a “first stepper” reward!

Santa Pumpkin wants to say: Holidays in Resale are great!

Who loves a party? We do!

What gets us in a festive mood?

Decorations, doo-dads, dressing for holidays… the whole, real-life experience of being immersed in the holiday spirit. New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day, Easter, everyone’s birthday and anniversary and bridal showers and oh my!

Just thinking about a celebration, holiday, party, makes us smile.

And you don’t get that joy shopping at Amazon or any of those online consignment vendors…

So let’s USE the advantage

A follower asked me, recently, when she should start planning her seasonal promotional events.

I told her ASAP.

The more lead time, the better. Why?

  • You can try out your handouts, social media posts, etc, on many friends. Do they get what you’re saying?
  • Do they get excited about it? Does it appeal to your target market?
  • And are those friends proofreading for you too?
  • You can source supplies, decorations, props, even catering for the most advantageous deals.

And best of all: you can DEVELOP unexpected events if you always keep an eye open for opportunities that come your way.

Here’s an example: Stillgoode Consignments in Spring TX is currently running an online estate auction.

So what? Well, they have almost 100 angel figurines of all sorts up for grabs. Now, if you happen to be in Houston, and happen to be free on this coming Saturday to pick them up, you could have a variety of little angels for a bargain price.

So what? Well, with these in hand, you could plan an event you hadn’t really planned for, for Thanksgiving through Christmas:
“Donate a minimum of $10 to [name your charity} and choose your own personal angel... because you ARE one!” or maybe
“Every purchase over $100 gets a free angel!” or maybe
“Buy $50 or more at MyShop, pick an angel, turn it upside down, and discover your discount: 5, 10, even 15% off your purchase!”*

Is this a fun, word-of-mouth-worthy event? Perfect for media attention too? And selfies for social media? You even have built-in refreshment suggestions: angel food cake, ambrosia punch. And if you run this event for a period of time, you’ll even, I am sure, get customers donating additional angel figurines to the Host of Angels.

Remember, everyone needs to be a winner. Open that link to read possibly the most important customer-service post on my entire blog.

Wow, did you click on today’s post simply BECAUSE of the title? Hmm, lesson learned?

Yup, December 26. In the spirit of naming days in regard to their seasonal consumerism (Black Friday?  Cyber Monday?), December 26 should be The Day of Disappointment.

Some gifts just NEED to be recycled, and that's where TGtbT.com can help

However wonderful your December 25 might have been (hopefully, was!) with family and friends, fellowship and good cheer, wonderful food and drink…. if you didn’t receive what you really wanted chances are, on December 26, you’ll be out seeking that which

you really wanted.

Which is where you,
