PR / Promotional Opportunity!

Hi All,

I'm in touch with a PR company who are looking for goodie bag donations for one of their clients. The company runs style and confidence coaching for women via one day workshops. They are looking for donations of items to go into 35 goodie bags for the attendees of their first workshop. Items should be suitable for women aged 30+. If you can't donate products then discount cards are also welcome, any number of products welcome.

The deadline for donating is 3rd August. As this is the first workshop for the company there will be local press, journalists attending the workshop and there is the possibility of national glossies attending however is unconfirmed at this point. If you are interested in taking part please contact me on info (@) shophandmade.co.uk with details of the product and quantity you can donate. Any questions please comment or contact me direct.

If you can't donate to the goodie bags due to time frame or other, I'm also running a trial for a new concept of Sample Box. Donations to this will reimburse costs, to read more and assist with the trial click here.

Thanks
Belinda

  2. Hi Catherine,

    I understand your concerns, it's hard to judge as I love all your items and I'm well over 30..lol. I think to keep it safe your forget-me-not brooch would be lovely and I think it would appeal to a broad age / style range. Let me know if you could donate some of them.

    Thanks

  5. Hi Wood Jewellery & Christals Creations,

    Thanks for your interest. A discount card only is brilliant, if you can donate items great but card is perfect on it's own. Can you both email me direct so I can forward details on where to post your discount cards.

    Thanks

  6. Not sure that any of my things are suitable either not really knowing exactly what that age group of the opposite gender would be interested in. If there is anything then I would be interested

  7. Hi Pete,

    Thanks for your comment. Your items are stunning and I think would appeal to many. I had a look on your website and see you do miniatures, would these be viable to donate a few. If not business cards with a discount on would be good. Let me know.

    Thanks

  8. I'd love to donate a piece from either my Folksy or my Etsy shop if you aren't already full up. I make jewellery and I'm well over thirty so I'm sort of hoping my my style may be the kind of thing you're looking for!

    I'll have a look and e-mail you later today with a list, I'll put a few pieces from each category then you can choose what you're most in need of.

  10. Hey...
    I'd definitely be interested in donating products, but am unsure if my items would be right? Would buttons or beads be any good?
    Thanks,

  11. Hi Vicki,

    Thanks for your offer. I guess it depends on the style of the buttons & beads, can you email me pics of what you have in mind to info (@) shophandmade.co.uk.

    Thanks

  12. I presume you'd want some 1/12th size, usually that is the scale for dolls houses etc. I'll have a root through my scrap bin and see what bits of wood I can convert into something else LOL.

    I'll get back to you when I have some to show.

  13. Hi Pete,

    Thanks for that. I hope that's not going to be too much work, if it is you can always send in discount cards. Let me know how you get on.

    Thanks
