I am a self-appointed Gypsy Queen. I work very part-time at Michaels. I average 7 hours a week and three of those hours are before the store opens on Sundays. I offer free interactive demos for the Cricut and Gypsy 2-4 times a month. Our district does not offer classes right now, so this is my compromise. It gives people a chance to try before they buy!
I have about 20 lovely ladies who have attended at least one of my demos and have learned a ton about their Cricuts and Gypsys. I also have enabled several to purchase a Gypsy. I do not get commission, just the satisfaction of helping people learn how to use these wonderful toys!!
In March, Michaels held a competition to see which district sold the most Gypsys during the month. Not only did our district win, but my store sold the most!! Translation ~ I sold more Gypsys than any other Michaels in the US and Canada!!! I am proud to say that most of these purchasers have come to my demos and have learned how to use them too!!!
Soooo, I have decided to appoint myself a Gypsy Queen. I have changed my name tag at work accordingly. I am also making my Gypsy Challenge project this week in honor of my new title (which I will post tomorrow). MyaMagoo gave me this awesome crown to wear!!
