Gametag at the Ekka in Brisbane 8th to 17th August 2013


       Gametag is a DS game case and holder.

The show at the Ekka was fantastic my stand was in the Ekka Emporium our neighbours were fantastic to our right was Wild Hoodz  who sell their own brand of luxury, lush fur print hoods with paw gloves. Both Matt and Christine were amazing neighbours knowing they were there I could just duck out for a quick "pit stop" Christine even sold a few Gametags Thanks Christine.

On my left was the International Creative Nail Art. I lost my voice on third day when two of my customers suggested Aloe Vera juice so Chong went and bought his wife and me a bottle from the first capful I felt relief for my throat by the end of the show we were all on the Aloe Vera.  Thank you Chong. I still have the nail artwork on my thumb and it's been almost 4 week since Irene put it on.

Johnno from Electro Arcade who was such fun
The stall opposite was a huge hit with men between the ages of about twenty and ooooh fifty it was the Electo Arcade.  Yes the stand was filled with arcade games and most days it was standing room only as everyone waited patiently to get on a machine.  I think the DS will go the same way it is just a very loved toy from everyone's childhood. Some of the machine are around $2500 and from what I saw people where only too happy to pay for one and relive their childhood.   Do you think people will be paying big dollars for the DS in the years to come as they too want to relive their childhood?

Gametag participated in the The Ekka Adventure Trail which was one of the best marketing decisions I have made.  Gametag is a hard thing to sell "would you believe" because it constantly needs explanation, on the adventure trail participants come to our stall to receive a sample so I was able to demonstrate Gametag and take the time with each party for them to thoroughly examine Gametag it was such a pleasurable experience and the interest in both Gametag and my story was amazing.  Ekka Adventure Trail customers were offered extra savings on our products that were not offered to other show goers.  My neighbour next door International Creative Nail Art also participated we were both kept flat out!



Gametag had an additional offer for the Ekka Adventure Trail Customers

Gametag was number 9 on the Adventure Trail
An old friend of Gametags's Lil Princess and their beautiful skirts where just around the corner


The best thing about doing stalls regularly is you make friends with other stall holders and there is a real sense of comradeship between stall holders they all look after one another and being next to a friend whether it is an old or a brand new friend can really make the show and Lil Princess has been part of my life for two years and it's always a pleasure being near them.
