Joan, what was their request on customization and how did you do it? I’m just wondering why the big basket company couldn’t do it.

I do a lot of baskets for realtors. My husband is a realtor, and through the office he works out of I do OK. Some time ago I did a presentation at the office. One of realtors assistant had been looking for a new basket company. I did up a few samples. Explained about the customized ribbon. One sample was picked out and I have been doing their baskets, seems like for ever. The assistant told me that the company they were working with was not willing to customize their baskets. Asked if she would mind telling who that was Turned out to be my local competition and one of the biggest basket company’s in town. Also turns out that Dene at Intertrade use to do their baskets way way back. Small world.

A client that I have that orders baskets at the $150.00 range is the County of Grande Prairie. They order the baskets and give them to different groups in the area that are having events to raise money, the baskets are for silent auction items. They order then year around. I hooked up with them through the chamber of commerce. They have their name and logo on the ribbon and they seem to love them…

Oil industry is definitely my top client around here. Most of my business is from office admins from the major oil companies. I do baskets for most of them for all major life events, babies, condolence, get well and retirement mostly. Occasionally they do large orders for employee recognition.

Contact the Marketing Directors at the facilities. They are the salespeople who sell the facility to the families and then want to offer a thank you gift. It is not usually the events or activities directors.

Interesting, I have never approached places like that. Who do you talk to about getting into something like that.

My top clients are both retirement villages. One gives gift boxes out whenever a senior moves into their long term or assisted living center. The boxes include crackers, cookies, coffees, teas, candies. I also include items provided by the client- branded promotional products from their facility such as night lights, pens, jar openers, and notepads. The other facility which is my top client is a memory care unit- Alzheimer’s care. When the families out their loved ones there they get a ”memory trunk” which is a gift designed in a small trunk, with wine provided by the client (I cannot sell wine), and also included cheese and crackers and chocolates. That facility also buys ”door prize baskets” from me for when they do business trade shows. Those are just a tin filled with lots of food items such as cookies, candies, crackers, etc, and they always have me include sparkling cider to make it festive for whoever wins it (people leave their cards at the booth and a winner is drawn). Oh, and I include some branded items from the Memory Care facility such as a brochure and their business card and a coffee mug that they provide.
