I’ve been to a few events over the last couple of days – I tend to do them all actually. However I noticed something with the ones that are “Anniversary” rounds. NO free gifts to celebrate – instead there are discounted items costing from $50-$75L . Don’t get me wrong I don’t expect free gifts, and I do understand that the economic climate is pretty bad and everyone has a living to make right? however I’ve found so many new designers from gifts I’ve collected at events – shame to go this way.
If I’m expected to part with my cash there are a couple of things I expect to see.
- A demo – don’t buy anything without one – if the weekly sales give a demo why not at these events? Paid for hunts give a board showcasing the prizes to be found.
- At the very least a photo on the box showing what I’m being expected to buy. Some do and quite a few do not – would you buy something for $50L and not even know what’s inside
