^^^^ay pwede pala magpost bazaar schedules dito? di ba ads na din yun? just asking... :)

i dont think that was an ad sis :) sinabi lang venue ng bazaar. advertising it i think would be if nakalagay details like rate, contact info ng organizer etc hehe :)

IMHO, even if i posted the rate, i wouldn't consider it an ad. kase di naman ako yung organizer eh. it's like giving fellow bazaaristas or would-be bazaaristas a guideline on how much is it to join bazaars. or what are the upcoming bazaars they can join pa.

oh well, i am no longer a Moderator so not my call haha.


sa totoo lang, madamot ako giving schedules ng bazaars noh, lalo na yun mga sinalihan at sasalihan ko. kase dami mga asungot, sunod ng sunod, mga copycats  ;D  ayaw maghanap ng sariling sasalihan, ang daldal ko nga dito ngayon eh  ;D

re kita sa bazaars, meron mga bazaars na kahit medyo malaki gross sales namin, if i add up the expenses incurred, super minimal na lang natitira, but the good thing is, mas mabilis nagmove yun stocks namin, some slow moving items nabebenta, plus yun after sales ang minsan habol namin. you can only get so much clients online eh. you have to be visible din around the metro, then direct them to your online store. kahit di bumili sa bazaar, i always instruct my staff to hand out calling cards, kase potential buyers pa rin yun, the mere fact they stopped to your booth and check out your items, interesado sila (well not all LOL).

i ask our staff to explain the concept of online shopping (frustrating but super dami pang pinoy ang di pa nakakaalam ng benefits of online shopping, if only they know haha), paliwanag pano proceso etc. okay naman. kase days after bazaar they will text or email us and say, i saw your booth at the bazaar, or i bought from you at the bazaar, maganda yun nabili ko, i want to buy more (i wish laging ganyan haha).

so bazaar for us considered advertising/marketing expense, a very huge expense lolz

pahabol.

dati gusto ko pag bazaar, mas mahal selling price namin. kase nagbayad ka ng renta, babayad ka tao tagabantay, magrerent truck to haul our display tables and stocks (bulky di kasya sa sasakyan namin kase), gas expense pa kase babyahe ka sa venue, etc etc.

kaso dinadayo din kami ng mga online and store buyers namin and most of them memorize ang prices namin, so di ako makadiskarte to cover up the additional expenses hehe.

I don't think bazaars are as strong as before, between the number of malls and multiply, parang less people go to bazaars. What do you think?  Sometimes I think of joining bazaars in mga Davao and Cebu para different crowd.

Noon people would really go to the hotels and pay the entrance fee Pero natin iba.  Joined Rockwell bazaar before- nobody. To think katabi Ang mall at mga residential area.

I plan to go to world trade bazaar the one of worldbex to see Kung madaming Tao.

^^ i mean if masyadong detailed yung info na binigay not just the rate, then baka it could be considered as pasimpleng advertising. and yes you're right, you're not the organizer and you're not even looking for a booth partner so it's not at all an "ad". you just merely answered a question posted here.

ako kung ano presyo ko online that's also my price sa bazaars. nangyayari pa nga is if sa bazaar, mas bumababa kasi may tawad. online i don't gives tawads but pag bazaars and naglambing na customer, na papa oo ako hehe

^ i have to agree. my boyfie discourages me na from joining kasi sayang daw pagod and other expenses kasi di naman na kalakasan. but may mga tao kasi na they want to see the items and since we dont have a physical store or showroom, we use bazaars to give our our buyers the chance to "see and feel" our products. and marami na din ako na eexperience na they don't buy during the bazaar but they get in touch after a fews dats tsaka sila bibili.

sis lelila and melovehavies, i bought some eco bags, pero sa pricier items like bags, watches ko lang plan gamitin. most of our items kasi are clothing, accessories, and we are selling them for a very low price, nasasayangan ako kung pati sila nakaecobag/paperbag.

last year nung sumali kami, kahit sinabi ng organizer na bawal na ang plastics, lahat ng vendors plastics pa rin gamit, kami lang yung nakabrown bag. but the second day napaplastic na rin kami coz everyone's using it haha! magdadala na rin kami ng plastic bags just in case.

ah ganun ba mga sis.... kasi dati may topic din ako na sinagot kasi question yung topic nya seeking suggestion eh i was qouted na nagaadvertise na daw hehe... anyways, baka maoff topic ako. i guess siguro naman sa mga posts ko eh may naitutulong din sa iba.

for the mod, kung advertisement na ang dating ng comment, jsut simply delete it. thanks, suggestion lang.

good luck sa mga bazaarista. sana ako din makabalik sa pagbabazaar.

i was there last friday from 3pm to 11pm. ok naman, di pa masyado madami tao. dami din mura. may mga nabili ako na blouses na worth 150 and 200 na good quality. advise lang, magdala ng eco bag kase bawal na plastic although may binibigay silang bag (1 bag/ ticket). regular size nga lang so if madami ka bibilhin di kasya. :)

ay kapagod yun every night!!! pag 3-day bazaar favorite ko yun 2nd day, kase parang rest day haha. pag 1st kase, ingress/setup yun madalas, 3rd, egress naman. 2nd day sarap buhay slight

My thoughts exactly. stressful talaga ingress and egress!

ang mamahal na ng booth fee sa ngayon. madami pang tinda na halos pare-pareho na din. your product must really be unique or at least look a bit different para magfloat sa bazaars. madami na din complaints na nagfaflop ang bazaars, eh pano kasi pati sa mall may items na din as low as P75.
