Rancho Solano Holiday Boutique – Fairfield – Nov 21

10th annual Rancho Solano Holiday Boutique
Sunday, November 21, 2010
10 am – 5 pm
Handcrafted items only. No commercial. 

This boutique is held at The Clubhouse at Rancho Solano, a 7200 square foot banquet facility overlooking Rancho Solano Golf Course, Fairfield, CA. It is a beautiful spot and elegant display space for your hand-crafted items. Our 2010 boutique promises to be the best yet!

This is my third year coordinating the boutique. The level of artisans has made the show a huge success! Shoppers tell us they look forward to the boutique because of the range and quality of the items presented! The show has a good reputation among vendors too and I appreciate the referrals from boutique vendors who recommend the show to new artisans. The boutique has grown the past several years to over 70 quality vendors.

Advertising is key. We advertise broadly ….. Local print ads start in August with “Save the Date”. Ten thousand postcards are distributed, about half as an insert in the local newspaper a few days before the show. Everyone will get a packet of postcards to hand out at shows and give to their customers and friends. .

Word of mouth is an important too……and technology is the new word of mouth! You can let people know about the boutique via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc (however you keep in touch with your customers, potential customers and friends) . I’ll create a reminder/invitation you can personalize and send out a few weeks before the boutique. The boutique is also listed on many “Events” listings online, Craigslist, and numerous print Community Calendars, etc.

The Sunday before Thanksgiving has been “THE” boutique day so shoppers are looking for us then . We put up 100 “yard signs” to lead shoppers to us. We are hard to miss!

Cost for an 8 foot table or 5 foot round table is $110 postmarked before September 1st or $125 postmarked after September 1st. White tablecloths are provided and you can decorate your table any way you choose. Limited electricity is available. The show sold out the past two years.

Please e-mail or call to tell me about your hand-crafted items and send photos or web site. Unfortunately I have to limit applications for jewelry as it is by far the most popular category.

If you are not available for the Rancho Solano Holiday Boutique but would like to be considerred for other shows, please contact me to be put on my data base of artisans.
