Showcase Your Products this Festive Season at Flea Markets and Exhibitions – October 2014

Have you ever noticed the way your grandmother appreciates a friend’s saree at a wedding? She always touches the material and pipes that it is a cotton silk saree!  This behaviour is ingrained in Indians to the extent that they touch and test everything from clothes, jewellery, cosmetics and even groceries before they make up their mind to purchase it.

However in this fast paced world, people are moving to online shopping because of its convenience and variety. But, don’t you think it would be great if we could let them enjoy the feel once in a while? This would give them confidence in your product and next time they will not hesitate before clicking the checkout button on your store!

So give your customers the opportunity,  by showcasing your products at the various flea markets and trade fairs, held all over the country. By doing so you will kill two birds with one stone- make your customers happy and get a chance to network with leading designers, traders and organizers in your industry.
