11  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Selling at a market? on: May 06, 2004 07:12:07 PM
Hi Blur ! There is some element of risk in everything we do. There is no "guarenteed" sale. First go to several shows in your area and see what folks are selling. It's best to have a unique product. Booth fees in my area can be as low as $25.00 for a single space at a local church for a six hour show to several hundred bucks for a larger space. Mulit day shows can be even more. Try "googling" craft fairs", "arts & craft shows" or craft websites. I use one called www.craftlister.com . You'll be able to search different shows in your area, read reviews obout the shows and get the producers contact info. Do some research, plan your work then act on your plan. Take the profits from the first show and roll them back into product and booth fees for the next show. Building a business takes time. Keep at it and you will succeed. Best of luck
12  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / A place to sell my stuff on: May 06, 2004 09:57:51 AM
Hello All ! I've been building twig furniture as a hobby and last year started to sell it at craft fairs. Some folks who stop at my booth tell me I should try selling at a "craft mall".  No one knows exactly where this place exists, a search of the phone books was non-productive and "Google" brought me here. I do well on the circuit and want to take this full time. Any ideas?
