So, what is a Bow Show?
kinda like a Tupperware party.
Do you bring stuff already made to buy or just take orders?
Do you play games?
Can you tell me about it?
Thanks

i did mine very simple, not like a tupperware party (i may change this)the party was set for 10am i got there at 930 to set up. she already had an empty table set up (should have taken picture) i just covered it with a table cloth and displayed all my stuff. i brought 8 military hats, about 10 ar flowers and 10 fabric flowers, a few pair of flip flops, lots of christmas bows, bottlecap bows, kufis, headbands. anything i had they could buy on the spot and some placed orders. i gave the hostess a pair of flip flops, and i had everyone fill out an index card with their info on it and i had the hostess draw a name out and i gave that person a prize (a few hair flowers and clipies)

next time i may do it a little more organized so i can explain everything i have and everything i can do.

That sounds great! Good for you!

Thanks for the details too, this is something that interests me as well!

I have done open houses at other people's homes and I give the hostess a gift...usually pick out anything she wants worth $25-$30. In the few that I have done I have always made over $350.
