1  Tips for newies from a newie ( updated) in Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs by missevilkitty on: June 23, 2005 04:16:03 PM
I went to my first craft fair on may28th-29th   I sold the stuff i have on my site ! missevilkitty.com , its soap, lip balms , cards, mini towels i fixed up and some bath salts and some pins,

 If you need a table you can get one at target.com or the store for $24 it comes with 2 chairs i had a 33" x33" from ( hell) it moved all the time am going to buy a new one for the next show i go to that way i have more room

also  bring some change with you i did the mistake of not saving may money so i owed my b/f $40 also bring a friend in my case i had my b/f  with me ! 

 Also because i had a small table i had to come up with a simple display



 If you have $ to burn get some paper bags , tags or make youre own i used  blank index cards
I found some really cool ones on ebay also i got some really cool boxes from the seller so i used those for displays.  the show was at a hair salon I got to use the mirror as a display

 
Make contacts ! Its cool if you have a web sites !

 If people ask qs about  how u made youer items or whats in them  tell them !

 location is key I made $100 and i was about 4 feet  away from the main door !




 if they ask if you take checks  take them ! you can always cash them at youer bank or theirs
