Tips for selling at fairs and festivals.

Fairs, festivals, craft shows and other events like this provide a perfect selling opportunity for organizations and resellers to sell Rada Cutlery. Here are 10 simple tips to help make the most of your selling experience.

FAQ 3. Set Up a Table or Booth

1. Make sure your display is well organized and looks nice. Add a table cloth for a personal touch.

2. Have some products out for the customers to test. If they can touch the product they may be more inclined to purchase it.

3. Give demonstrations. Let the customers know how the products work. Knife sharpeners and vegetable peelers are easy ways to show potential customers how well the products work.

4. Keep it simple. Only sell three to four of the best selling items. This makes it easier for people to make a decision.

5.  Have posters around your table so people know what you are selling.

6. Make sure you provide Rada bags for people who have purchased items. They will carry them around and provide free advertising to let people know you are there.

FAQ Where can I Sell

7. Put signs up other places outside the selling area so people know there will be a Rada booth.

8. Know your product and be prepared to answer questions. Rada Cutlery is 100% American made and makes for a good selling point.

9. Have catalogs available in case customers are interested in purchasing more items.

10. Sell with a smile.

    I gear my table display to the season. I have lots of tomato knives in stock for my spring and summer shows and gift sets in stock for fall/Christmas shows. Vegetable peelers and the R101 paring knife, and the sharpener are all strong sellers at any show. My customers look for my table at every show they know I am attending. They love that Rada is a made in the USA product. That is a huge selling point! Thank you for keeping your product reasonably price. Also the extras like bags, posters, catalogs etc are priced affordably.

    I am very interested in becoming a reseller, and doing home parties, I was wondering if there is an actual kit that you buy, or do you have to buy items seperate? I was also wondering how I would go about finding another reseller in my area, that I might be able to go to for help? I have not seen any catalogs for my area, so I am thinking the area is pretty open, and that is a good thing for me! :-)

    • Rada Cutlery says:

      Thank you for your questions. There is not a kit to buy. You get to decide the items that you want to show and stock and the minimum order is only $75. Your best source for answers to your questions is our customer service reps and they will answer your call from our factory in Waverly, Iowa. You can call 800-311-9690 to ask questions. You can request an information packet at https://www.radacutlery.com/ssl/requestcatalog. Yes, it will be great if your area doesn’t have many Resellers. But even it did, typically there is enough room for a new Reseller to work in an area because every household is a potential customer – everyone uses kitchen knives and utensils! Trica, we hope you decide to get started selling Rada Cutlery in the near future!
