This link is really helpful, thanks for posting it.  It says you should take a media pack, I did a show on Saturday and was interviewed for a newspaper article, it would have been so much easier if I had had something to give them.

What's in a media pack? A bio?

A media pack, I guesss, is flyers, catalogues, business cards, and bio. I catalogue can be even on a CD, if you do not have a web-site.

SCARVELOUS, congrats! Post us the article!

Thanks Redstitch, I will post, it should come out today, the fair was organized by the Washington City Paper, and they were the ones that interviewed me.  It might be in next weeks though, since the fair was on Saturday.

I am thinking a media pack would be information about yourself and your craft that is in a prepared folder, along with as Redstitch said your flyers, business cards etc.

That's really helpful. I'm surprised I had most of that stuff already. I am doing my first craft show this Saturday all day long. I'm soooooooo excited. I have to print out business cards and I'm ready to go!
