Cookie Costumes and Booth Tips

The community has a cookie costume available to borrow. If your troop would like to use it for their booth, please contact Rachel Griel using the form below. You can also get costumes from GSHPA – for details, see https://gsheartpa.wufoo.com/forms/girl-scout-cookie-costume-form/

If you are unsure how many cookies you should take to a booth, a good place to start is reviewing last year’s Cookie Booth Sales Data and getting a suggested inventory from the booth predictor. After your booth, be sure to submit your booth data so we can learn from your experience. The more troops that contribute, the more accurate our booth sales predictions will be!
