Creative Stationery Workshops
Be prepared to come along and do your stuff – these are not demonstrations, but easy ideas for you to try out and consider running in your own store. So, roll up your sleeves, get everything out of the packets and get stuck in! Talk to the workshop presenters and suppliers about what retail support they offer – whether it’s a supply of product samples, workshop activity sheets, or someone to help you out. This is where you’ll find ideas on how to encourage your customers to spend some more time with you and the products you sell.
