Car show coming up!!!

Post by skiwithnoskis » Thu Jan 12, 2012 9:36 am

What kinds of items sell well at car shows? I have been doing outdoor type themes. Car shows are new to me. Give me some ideas please. Maybe post some Picts of examples. I would really like to sell unfinished.

Thx

I will sell a lot of "garage signs" Most are custom orders that are personalized and have a drawing of my customers favorite car. I have a scrapbook with me so I can show them finished drawings of cars I have drawn in the past. I also have my camera handy so I can take a picture of their car if they have it with......that way you can draw it from the perfect angle

I will take a few generic samples that can be sold if the customer wants to buy stuff on the spot but I usually do better just showing samples and doing custom orders

Car brand Logos like Chevy and Ford are good ones too. The chevy SS Logo i cant keep around. I make 5 and sell 8.

If you can make little key chains of the logos, those are decent sells. Might not be alot of $$ but gets your name out there for bigger projects

how bout plaque stands? i've thought about doin one for my car and then trying to sell em at show&shines etc.
The shows i go to, you cant use mirrors or jack stands so ppl never get to see the real good stuff that isn't all just for show. so i think it would be nice to have a nice frame/stand that hi-lites some of things that can't be displayed.

i couldnt think of a better term for it :D A stand that might have some pics of the car or the original build, or some historical data on the car, etc. Could even be used to rope the car off. Some ppl name their cars, so it might be a nice place to put the car's name and it's details.

In my experience at car shows, especially when they are judged by the public, is they focus on shiny things. they dont always pick up on the little details. for example. i've got a bit of a trick paint job on my mustang, but ppl don't notice it unless they are really looking seriously.
