So, if you're a mom in Hong Kong, you would have undoubtedly gotten to hear about the Eugene Baby Fairs. These events are held twice a year, once in February and once in August. They're well known for having the best deals in town, but they are also MONSTER events - be prepared for massive crowds, lots of yelling and a maze of vendors. Having said that, if you're brave enough to head down, you'll find some amazing savings. So, here are some of our top tips to navigate the fair.
Do your homework
Eugene Baby's Fairs are big, and they have great deals and savings, but you have to be smart about navigating the maze of shops and hordes of peoples. One way to do that is to do your research beforehand. Find out which vendors will be at the fair, and what special promotions they'll be offering! You can check out the February 2016 Fair's list of promotions here.
Bring friends or family
The more the merrier when you take on this mammoth of a fair. If you're looking to score that amazing deal on a child seat, play mat, or pram - remember these are big items. So, you'll definitely need some help carrying these items around while going down your shopping list. Don't be afraid to rope in friends or family to be your muscle for the day.
Eugene usually offers a coupon booklet at each of their fairs for a small fee like $20 or $25. If you're a fan of coupon cutting, or getting freebies - don't forget to get a copy of this booklet. The booklet lists deals and freebies you can collect throughout the expo.
Prepare your contact information
Which brings me to my next point: Many of these vendors will hand out freebies and gifts in exchange for your contact information, so unless you want to spend lots of time writing down that information by hand, you could try preparing a sheet of stickers with all your relevant contact information. That way, you can just stick a copy on the coupon, hand it over for your freebie, and move on! Some relevant information you'll want to include are your name, your HKID number, your telephone number, address, and email.
If you want to go all out, prepare some sustenance! The food isn't great at the expos, and the drinks will be expensive and hard to find. So, bring some of your own snacks and some bottles of water, so you have enough energy to hunt down those deals!
Saturdays tend to be the most crowded days for the expo. If you can help it, try heading over during the weekday period of the event. Timing also matters on weekdays- try to go during the day time to avoid the after-office crowd.
I hope these tips are useful for you.
