Coffee Shop Shopping

November 1, 2010

I took myself and my Avon off to Criminal Coffee this morning and set up at a table.  This is my new Monday strategy.   I took a few nice products to catch people’s eye.  It worked.  A lot of folks stopped to look.  No one bought anything on the table, but I did take two orders for other products and I gave away a couple of books to new people.

Avon has a new mascara out that got a lot of comments but no one ordered.  It is Sonic Mascara and comes with a vibrating brush.  I’d like to repeat some of the comments, but I am certain if you use your imagination you’ll think them up all on your own.  (Thank heavens Thom is on vacation!)

    For Pete’s sake. I have mascara with a vibrating brush. Either Estée Lauder stole the idea from Avon or vice-versa — but nevertheless, a good heist for you at Criminal Coffee.

    Great idea Quilly! Having the product visible for people to see is a great sales tactic. Do you have a cash and carry stash? People like that too.

    THAT would be SO cool… if only I HAD some eye lashes… I have stubble.

    I don’t need a vibrating brush. I have shaky hands. (And I won’t make inappropriate comments, because I am the one whose child designed an interesting looking lizard tail.)

    I might have to start wearing mascara one of these days, though. The tips of my lashes are fading / going gray. *sigh*

    The vibrating brush is supposed to be separating your eyelashes as you apply your mascara. It’s just a gimmick. Next time I’m buying regular mascara and doing the same thing as I’m holding the brush.

      Karen — yes, and you’ll be saving about $6.00 in the process! I totally agree!

      • Karen A.No Gravatar says:

        Hurrumph. This is why I am not an Estée loyalist. It cost WAY more than $6 for the pleasure!

        • QuillyNo Gravatar says:

          Karen — the Avon version is selling for $12.00 — the most expensive mascara I ever purchased was $6.00 — that’s why I said you’d lose $6.00 — because that’s how much more you’d spend than what it is worth.
