Coco Brooks Sale starts Feb 1!!!!!!!!

Good morning – here is the invite link for coco brooks – each seller can now use the below link to create a log in, sign in and order any products. They can also send an invite from their own account to friends and family. All payments and orders or order sheets can be printed right from their own accounts. This link is linked to 3016’s campaign and we are trying to go moneyless which means each person pays for their own and no money is to be collected by the unit. This should simplify things and prevent a loss in money to the unit. The campaign goes live on the 1st, closes on the 23rd and the pick up is the 8th of March. I hope this answers most questions. Have a great day.
