Goodie Basket

Beauty products

I put my products in this caddy I had to be able to display easier at parties and carry around when warm chattering.

It was fun & easy. Looking forward to seeing what other women think when they get a glimpse of this basket of temptations! :-)

My intent is to hand out samples (I have in a separate bag) & ask if they'd like to enter for a chance to win a gift certificate or gift basket, haven't decided yet.
Either way, the caddy displays the types of cosmetics we have so they get an idea of what they can purchase with their gift certificate or what the gift basket would consist of.
I'm hoping to make a few on-the-go sales as well. But I'd like mostly to get leads and book facials, parties etc to reach out to women in my area (i'm new to the town about a month ago) & get my business growing.

So far, without having the basket, I've handed out 2 samples, 4 business cards. Warm chatter is NOT my comfort zone at all, lol, so I'm challenging myself to strengthen my weaknesses.
Surprisingly when offered, (sample/bus. card) people gladly accepted. I was excited cause it's a big deal for me. I normally don't offer first unless asked. I'm trying to change that in order to be comfortable and grow.
So I'm gaining confidence and trying a little more. Hopefully the basket will add a little more interest and not scare anyone off! ;-) lol

I am so in the same boat as you!!  I have been in MK for 4 yrs and NEVER done a party!!  I have done some open houses and some informal stuff with family and friends, but not one party on my own (my Director has come and done a few as training)!  I, like you, am nervous to just start talking to someone about MK but would like to work on this and think you basket idea is a GREAT way to get started!!  I may have to give this a try (and would love to hear how it is working for you)!!

I got the basket a long time ago and forgot where! :/ thankfully it still has the sticker on the bottom :)
It's a shower caddy from Target. Hopefully that helps you find it, if not something similar.
