View Full Version : TransWorld Haunt Show : CASH & CARRY!

TransWorld Haunt Show

There has been some confusion about which parts of the upcoming TransWorld show are cash & carry, and which parts are wholesale only.

Basically, the Haunt & Attractions Show (upstairs) IS cash & carry.

VENDORS: You can sell stuff right at your booth, immediately, point-of-purchase, let'em-walk-off-with-it. Obviously, that's not going to help you if you're selling gigantic pneumatic props, but if you you're selling smallish props, consider that the more stock you have, the more you can sell on the spot.

ATTENDEES: If you need stuff for your haunt (or home), bring money and make sure you leave room in your suitcase for stuff!

The Halloween & Party Show (downstairs) is WHOLESALE ONLY, for the record, which means you can only place large orders with the vendors. You can't buy anything on the spot and walk away with it down there.

Also, the show ends on Monday, not Tuesday - that seemed to be confusing people who haven't attended in a couple of years. So there you go.

I think the reality is this show was always cash and carry atleast for the haunt vendors. They've always been selling their booths at the show but people clearly didn't take anything until after the show was over. Some vendors however especially those who sell videos, or smaller items have always sold stuff and let people take it on the spot.

I think his is great, because I know a lot of vendors are bringing extra stuff just so you can take it home!!!

Can't wait to see everyone at the show next month!

Should be a good time. And looking forward to seeing the new items Rob. The recent pics were very nice and after doing our recording for this fridays show last night, I am psyched to see the items up close.

Its going to be another fun year at TW. Looking forward to seeing everyone there and maybe I won't keep missing you again Larry and can get you to do an onsite interview this time around.

Last year kept missing you.

A few times a vender would happen to feel sorry for me, being a hick from the sticks? And would give me a nice looking item, just as a gift. Being too lazy to walk the three miles to my car to put his gift away, then return to the show, I would carry the item around with me for the next few hours.
Quite a number of people would stop me and ask me where I got the item?
Of course I would inform them of what they wanted to know......
It was only many years later that ("Hick from the sticks", remember?) I wondered if maybe this was a subtle way he had of getting more show exposure for his wares?
Anyone remember the brother of a booth owner who was asked to leave the show because he was wandering around demonstrating their product ?
He was rather noticable and somewhat salesman-like in his approach, maybe other venders complained?
"We don't need to spend the money for a booth, we'll just have ten salesmen hit the show." Transworld doesn't make one thin dime if this happened.

If you're upstairs in the haunt section, yes (assuming you provide your own means of processing credit cards).
