We have a person at our school who usually comes in and does the Santa's workshop for us. I took over as president at the last minute this year, and I find out that this guy will not do it. WHERE DO YOU BUY FROM?? I don't really want a company to come in but I am not sure where to buy presentsa from except Oriental Trading. Does anyone have any other ideas?
we make alot of our own stuff.....we purchase inexpensive natural wood frames and decorate them as well as canvas bags. it's fun for us to do the crafts and great for the kids to have a larger and different selection.
We use Fun Services. You can find them at [url="http://www.funservices.com."]www.funservices.com.[/url] They are a no-risk Secret Santa Shopping program. Basically, you are shipped an assortment of items in varying price ranges. You then determine if you are going to make a profit of 0%, 10%, 20% or 30%. Then you set the date, advertise in your school and your local newspaper, and watch the shoppers come in. If you school allows it, sometimes you can have children shop during school hours. We are only doing a one day shop this year as our school does not wish to remove children from classes. We also are coordinating it with our Breakfast with Santa so they will have breakfast, sit on Santa's lap, get a picture, and shop! We also are incorporating our Cookie Walk during this time for the adults to purchase home-baked cookies by the dozen while they wait. Good luck!
