I host trunk shows and I want to give a different perspective of the usual "home parties" our trunk shows are really fun, easy and the hostess always receives a generous gift.
Do we go to malls ? yes, we do it all the time . Do we go into the stores we know we can't afford? I do it all the time, but it was my option nobody push me to do it. Do I buy things in stores from Target, McDonald's, any store, everything I choose to do is my own doing.
This is how I feel about social shopping, I can go and look, and admire and have fun with my friends, maybe meet new ones , maybe Ill buy something I really loved! not because you feel obligated because you went to the party now you feel you have to buy you simply trully liked it .
Our parties are about fun, if you buy great if not that's ok too, your hostess will not be mad she is your friend ......

So I'm guessing that a "trunk show" is kind of like a tupperware party. The reason why I hate these is because I do feel pressured to buy something I don't want and to pay too much for it. I do like to window shop, but I will promptly leave a store (even if I had intentions of purchasing something) when the sales staff gets too pushy. I have yet to go to any kind of selling party where I didn't feel that the hostess or often times her boss (the other person doing the party with her who I don't usually know) is being very pushy about getting you to purchase something. I've seen these for clothing, jewelry, home decor, make up, food and even adult items. I turn down all invites to these kinds of things.
