Are you worried that your craft show experience will turn out bad because of lack of preparation?
Preparing for craft fairs can be stressful enough to sneak into the subconscious. That stress, however, can be eliminated with just a bit of preparation.
Craft shows and Pop-up shops are a great way to get yourself out there and in front of new people especially if you exclusively sell online.
Craft fairs can range from the tiny (small-town celebration, six booths, outdoors) to the enormous (large city, 500 booths, convention center).
So what you should never forget when doing craft shows?
I have created a lot of posts about selling on craft shows but here’s another post featuring Hannah Eleanor who attended the summer
Renegade Market in Austin. Here are her 10 tips for you:
- Research, Plan and Prepare
- Make Lists
- Do A Test Run (at home)
- Sell It
- Consider Prices
- Have A Booth Mate
- Bring Things To Eat and Drink
- Mailing List And Business Cards
- Don’t Overthink It!
This video will explain everything that was mentioned above. Check it out!
These craft fair tips and craft fair display ideas will help ensure that you have as successful of a show as possible, whether it’s your first time or one of hundreds of vending events.
