1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Question re variety at July 4th event on: March 18, 2008 12:51:18 AM
Hi, I am a crafty person who knits, paints and does lots of crafts - I am going to be applying for a July 4th Community Event that got 10,000 visitors last year - this being my first craft show. There are 50+/- craft tables (2 tables per vendor max) and all goods must be handmade by yourself (not resold or imported). I was thinking i-cord snakes, some painted T's (mostly kids/babies) and perhaps some knitted bookmarks or other things related to scrapbooking (perhaps pre-made pages).

How much is too much? I am very good with my T paintings, and will have a few large canvases of paintings I have done as well, and will perhaps even bring my easel to generate some interest. I want to have a ton of the small i-cord snakes for the kids and the bookmarks or other small items as well on the table.

Is this too much variety? DH thinks it is - but I am thinking the more variety the better (but I wouldn't sell more than 5 different things...too much work LOL!)

Any thoughts/suggestions welcome - thanks in advance!

Tara
