I am please to be apart of this event that will happen this Saturday November 30th at 9am until 4pm! See below:
Last Saturday I was in my first ever craft fair. I have to say I had a lot of fun even though I am pretty sure it was sub zero temperatures in the Lynnwood Elementary School Gym (mental note for next year bring a heater!). Overall I have to say that it was a success. I shared the booth with my very good friend Amy, who also makes greeting cards, it was her first craft fair as well.
This is how we set up our booth. Amy had cute contraption made out of a 2×4, bamboo sticks and some string to hang cards from. After some discussion she is going to see if her husband can retro-fit it to have another tier so more cards can be hung from it. We had decent traffic and lots of complements on how beautiful our cards are, which is always great to hear! In the end I sold all three box cards a box set and some paper beads. I consider this a success since I made my money back and then some for the booth. Amy did nicely as well. I will rethink the large print price tag and display options.
As always if you have a suggestion or a thought I would love to hear it!
I am just two days away from being in my first craft fair at Lynnwood Elementary School on Saturday November 16th, 2013. Details for this event are here. It occured to me, and I wish I would have thought about this sooner, to see what is some of your craft fair follies and sucesses?
Even if you see this post after the 16th I would still love to hear from you since I do plan to keep doing these!
