After some serious thinking and customer feedback, we made the decision to start showcasing our products live in-person. Two weeks ago was our very first booth event at Arizona State University campus. The actual setting up of the booth was a snap (especially with an EZ-Up pop tent). There were 3 of us that day to help man the booth: 2 sales associates and our logistics manager.
We enjoyed seeing both familiar faces and talking with new customers. Among all of our modern and retro-inspired dresses, the “Banana Co.” and “Quinn” dresses were especially popular; now both on clearance! We also had a large selection of accessories, including an exclusive $1.98 basket of select jewelry pieces to choose from (not sold on our website). There were a variety of hand-woven scarves in different colors, but as you can imagine they weren’t as popular. Sastique is locally stationed in Arizona and although the team was accustomed to the dry desert heat, we never anticipated it would be as warm as it was. Next time if we do a summer event, we’ll bring in the ice-filled kiddie pool.
Thanks to everyone who came to visit us. We hope to see you again soon at our next booth event!

The mighty sun beating down on the booth. It was a hot mid-September day! The clothes, jewelry and accessories held up well however : )
