Earn some cash with your used clothing

February 13, 2012 by  

Cash in your Closet will take place at the Crossroads Art Centre on March 3 from 10:30 am-3:30 pm. It is an event of the Cute Girls Rock and proceeds will go to local music ministry and youth programs. Table rental is $50.

Cash in your Closet is looking for gently used brand name/designer clothing items; this includes women’s, men’s and children’s clothes. In addition, quality items such as small household items, jewelery, handbags, shoes and clothing accessories. The artwork of over 250 local artists will also be on display for sale.

If you have a small gift store or if you sell items out of your home, this will be a great marketing opportunity for you. Bringing along a sample of what you sell will not only get you sales on the day of the event, it will also get your name known to shoppers in Richmond who might want to purchase from you again. Arranging for business card printing is a good first step to making your name known. When someone buys an item from you at this event, add a business card with your company name and contact details to the bag. If they like your merchandise they can remember where it came from and pass on your details to their friends and family. You can also have bags made up with your company name on them to hand out to shoppers for a very reasonable price. Marketing is all about getting your name out there and getting you return customers.
