"What a wonderful surprise this week to receive your phone call telling me that I had tied
for having the most customers to enter the Maryland Holiday Craft Show using my
tickets. My sales for the weekend were fantastic and I had a really positive experience
the whole weekend.
I did work hard to make sure that I talked to and distributed the tickets to interested
customers for several weeks ahead of time and it worked! Thank you also for making
sure that I had the tickets in September to hand out to customers who came to other craft
shows which I attend. It was a great way for me to advertise the MD Holiday Craft
Show. I also include my up and coming shows on my business cards and photographs
which I give out to many potential customers. I also contacted customers individually by
email and by regular mail to invite them to the show and to offer them a ticket. This year
I printed postcards of my work and sent them with a personal note to many past
As I thanked my customers and friends this week for helping me to win, I received some
interesting feedback. Several people told me how much they enjoyed the show and one
person thanked me for re-introducing them to the show. They used to attend all the
time but hadn't come for several years. She told me that the ticket got her there this year
but that she will come back next year even if she doesn't get a free ticket.
I had been meaning to write to you to give you feedback and to thank you for your
management of the show. Everything went so smoothly and you always have such a
calm and positive demeanor about yourself. The free tickets were a wonderful idea and I
know that people felt very honored to receive them. I am hopeful that you will be able to
continue to distribute the tickets to vendors, at least in the near future.
Thank you again and I look forward to working with you at the spring show and of
course again next year in the fall."
