Sample idea for craft shows

JoC__SCAugust 4, 2003

This may not be new to anyone here, but it was to me.

I just received some fillers for goodie bags that I will be giving out at my craft shows. I was wondering what kind of sample I could give and I got the perfect answer in the package. The lady had used small zip bags and put samples of her lotion, salts, even cotton balls with fragrance on it and stapled them to her biz card. How much easier can it get. I'm going to use the corn cob freshener for my samples since it's so quick to make.

I use the wilton disk mint candy mold & pour soap in it, pop them out & bag in 2"x2" zip top bag to use as samples at shows. So folks get greedy though & take too many.....

okay - love the sample idea - I'm wondering if you can tell me what the 'corn cob freshener' is?

The corn cob freshener is actually ground corn cob, sold as pet litter, that you add fragrance oil to. Then you can make sachets, teabags, vacuum freshener, etc.
