Can I get a refund if I cancel my booth rental?
Sorry, we do not offer refunds.
How can I maximize the potential for sales at the boutique?
Vendors who have the greatest success have display tables that are creative and interesting.
Merchandise that is simply ‘stacked’ does not seem to garner as much attention and interest. Also, vendors who stand in the booth and interact with patrons have much greater success then vendors who sit behind the booth and do not visit with the patrons.
How will you advertise the Suzy Foundation boutique?
We will advertise on Facebook, personal pages, flyers as well as Craigslist, and the City of Tempe.
You help make this event a success as well. The more you can help spread the word the better success for all. As the time draws closer, a flyer will be created for all of you to send out to your contact lists.
