How To Increase Your Profits At Craft Shows

Craft Maker Pro » How To Increase Your Profits At Craft Shows

Do you only have one handmade product to sell at craft shows? Are you looking for other product ideas that will go well with your main product?

List Of Items You Can Sell With Your Main Product At Craft ShowsIt should go without saying your booth is attractive and not sloppy. Tables should have floor-length tablecloths so you can tuck crates, boxes and extra stock underneath, rather than shoving them in the back.

Your displays should be uncluttered, clean and easy to view. You should be wearing clothing that is neat and professional (whether a costume or street clothes). You should have a nice, friendly smile.

But what about other items to sell that works well with your main product? Ever wonder which, of the tons of items that you can make, products you should bring with you to a craft fair?

There is something for every type of crafter and I believe every one of these ideas can sell at any craft show.
