<div>The way we solved that was to buy a really cute stuffed hen - maybe 1.5 times life sized - at TSC. Put the cooler of eggs on our table and set the hen on top of it win a sign about buying eggs from the happy hens at Au Naturel Farm, and taped a sign on
 the front of the cooler with verbiage about the eggs and the price.</div>

<blockquote><font face="Calibri, Verdana, Helvetica, Arial"><span style="FONT-SIZE:11pt;">Our market is now enforcing the regs that eggs be kept in a cooler, only one doz allowed for display. &nbsp;Since we've begun that, our egg sales are MUCH slower. &nbsp;Our primary
 egg vendor is sitting on 100 doz and counting, and is now trying to sell his hens.<br>
<br>
Want to help him out, and our other egg vendors.<br>
<br>
How to let customers know we still have local, free range eggs?&nbsp;<br>
<br>
Apparently, they're quite reluctant to buy what appears to be that last dozen on the table, not knowing cooler(s) full of eggs are waiting to be sold!! &nbsp;Didn't know eggs were an impulse buy.<br>
<br>
Any and all advice appreciated, as I'm on the committee that let the vendors know of these changes!<br>
