1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / How to know which shows are best? on: December 28, 2012 01:17:10 PM
Hi,

I hope that I am posting this in the right place.

I am new to craftster.org and also new to the business side of the craft world. I have been creating for as long as I can remember and have have sold some of my work over the years.

Being a new stay at home mom I am able to pursue my dream and jump in to the business of craft!

I recently did a gift show which was a flop for myself and just about all of the vendors there. I paid $50 for my table and did not even make that much back!  Cry

I know that there are no guarantees on making money at a show, however I was wondering if there is a way to know which shows are a better risk than others?

Thank you for any advice! I am really happy that I found your site.

xoxo
ElleJay
