The holidays are just a few short months away, and they provide a fantastic opportunity for an elementary school fundraiser: a holiday shop. There are a number of shops from which to choose, but the one that Five Star Fundraising likes best is the Lil’ Shoppers Shop.
Lil’ Shoppers Shop is an in-school holiday shopping program that has been around for 35 years. As a family-owned business, they have helped literally thousands of volunteers raise money for their school or organization.
Lil’ Shoppers Shop is simple and straightforward. Choose your preferred dates to run your shop. This fundraiser then gives you everything you need to run a successful holiday shop from posters to parent letters to gift bags. They also provide pre-priced tent cards, box inventory sheets, closing sale sheet, and they all have pictures of items to make set up, shopping and closing your holiday shop easy!
The Shop features over 110 quality holiday gift items carefully priced within a child’s budget ranging from a pocket change to $10.00. Most of the gifts are around $3. What’s good about this shop is your child can buy gift items for their whole family as well as their friends.
Features Of Lil’ Shopper’s Shop
One of the best features of Lil’ Shoppers Shop is that it is risk-free. All items are on consignment. After the fundraiser is over, return the unsold merchandise (no freight charges). There are no hidden costs. You pay after the sale is over!
The gifts are considered top quality and are approved by Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). There is something for everyone. Of course, they are priced for kids as well. You can see the gifts available here.
This elementary school fundraiser is convenient too. There’s no door-to-door selling or your child asking the same people to buy something from them again. Instead, parents appreciate that (1) the entire fundraiser is in-school so the children are safe and under adult supervision, and (2) it doesn’t add something else to their to-do list.
Lil’ Shoppers Shop is versatile as well. You can set your own prices. This allows you to make more profit.
Other Benefits of Lil’ Shoppers Shop
No one wants the same stuff year after year. That’s why Lil’ Shoppers Shop provides a complete new line of holiday gifts every year. You’re not getting closeouts or fundraising overstocks. If your inventory gets low or runs out, you get free UPS Next Day Air Reorders. In fact, you can place your reorder every day of your sale. Using the custom Chairperson Web Site, you can track inventory, re-orders and invoices 24 hours a day.
To make purchases easy, the merchandise is price-coded so you don’t have to look up the price of each item. The program also provides you with a Cash Register App! It runs on Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, iTouch) and Android, but you can also access it online from any internet-enabled computer, tablet or smart phone.
There are even guarantees. There is a $5.00 guarantee to make sure every child will get exactly what they want for holidays. They provide a 100% Product satisfaction Guarantee. In fact, broken and damaged items can be replaced, and you can even get a refund for any reason.
There’s one final benefit that you will definitely want to know. If you sign up early, you can choose a sign-up BONUS!
