We have been toying with the idea of starting a monthly crafts fair in Springfield, MO similar to a farmer's market. OR a nice indoor crafts fair in a nice hotel in the Fall, just in time for the holidays.
Neither would be juried, per se, but we would limit the number of vendors in any given group. We would be doing local/regional advertising.
We have access to a hotel's ballroom for either/both functions; booth pricing for the monthly would be very reasonable. I would like to do the monthly thing from March through December, and develop a real local market for handcrafted goods.
