A important but mostly overlooked aspect of successful sales at a craft show is the design and decor materials of your booth.
Don’t think all you need to do is set up a couple of tables, put your craft item on top, and then sit back and wait for sales to roll in.
Believe me, the design and display of your products can literally make the difference between excellent and abysmal sales.
