Working RVer Tip

You may find an easier way to get a seasonal or holiday job is to go back to one of your previous employers. Since you've already gone through the training and know how their system works, you'll cost the employer less than a brand new hire. While this may mean returning to the same store location, it could just as well mean returning to a different store within the company.

Holiday Bazaars, Craft Fairs, and Fall Gift Shows

Many working RVers set up as vendors at holiday bazaars, craft fairs, fall gift shows, or other special events. They are especially prevalent now through Christmas. Rules vary according to the specific event, but at many of them, you are welcome to sell both handmade items and commercial items. Here are some articles to help you be a successful show vendor. While some of them reference flea markets, the information is relevant to many vending situations. Just click on the links to read them.

Flea Marketing - Our Personal Experience as Working RVers Selling at Markets Flea marketing and the RV lifestyle are extremely compatible. For the first several years that we were full-timers, we worked as flea market vendors. We sold what we termed dignified merchandise.

These Flea Market Supplies Can Improve Your Day at the Swap Meet Extensive flea market supplies aren't necessary. Having these things to improve your displays, make sales easier, and make you more comfortable can sure make a day at the swamp meet more successful.

Show Booths: 18 Tips to Make Them a Sales Success Show booths work well for us. Our booth is usually busy. Our sales are good. We recently set up selling our Watkins products and had another success. Here are some of the reasons why our booth was a hit:

1. Had product at the show booths for people to buy. Booth display items are good. But, the money is in having products for cash and carry sales.

2. Had large quantities of the proven favorites visible. It showed we were clearly confident they were popular items.

3. Had a limited number of specially priced products. We let people know that when those were gone, they were gone. It created an urgency for them to buy now.

4. Said hello to everyone who came by the show booth. We were friendly. Our focus was on the people attending the show.

Working RVer Tip

Make your job about the company, rather than about you. Make your work-time conversations about how to meet the needs of your employer, rather than about your dire financial situation.
