Complete the Online Reservation Form and we will call you to confirm our receipt of your order. We will contact you again in Mid-October to reconfirm your sale dates and answer any questions you may have.
We will ship your promotional items by November 1, so you can begin to advertise several weeks before the sale.
The promotional materials arrive via UPS around November 1st, so you can start advertising several weeks before the sale begins.
At this time, you may also want to organize a few volunteers:
To run a successful and stress-free sale, most schools recruit between 3-5 volunteers. One trusted person can serve as the cashier and other volunteers can assist students with their purchases.
We ship the kits to you and we pay for all shipping. The shop arrives at your school one week before your sale starts.
All the gifts are organized in boxes and items are separated in neat sections. You do not need to sort anything. Just arrange the trays by number, open the lids, and you are ready to start shopping!
A couple more helpful hints:
Pricing & Fundraising
All items are marked by number 1-18, not by price. The numbers correspond to the item’s price, with lower numbers being less expensive and higher number being more expensive. We number the items so that if your school chooses to add a percentage to the price as a fundraiser, you can easily use the number codes to signify prices.
Most schools offer My Holiday Fair as a fun and educational service for their students. If you do want to use My Holiday Fair as a fundraiser as well, the reasonable profit percentage is anywhere between 10% and 50%. Most schools mark up the product only 10% so that the prices remain low. We will send you a Helpful Hints Manual that includes great ideas for your shop as well as samples of item markups to price the merchandise for a fundraiser. It is easy!
Prepaid shipping labels are provided, so you will only need to arrange for pickup. Place a copy of the Inventory Control Worksheets in one of the boxes, tape up all of the boxes and place the boxes in the front office where UPS will pick them up. We cannot accept return merchandise after January 15th. If UPS does not pick up the boxes, call us at 1-877-842-0624.
Please do not put your check in with the leftover merchandise.
