Hey all,
I am starting to formulate a plan for a craft sale in Northeast Minneapolis for the weekend of December 4th if I'm able to get the hall. I would also plan to have some musical (read: rocknroll) acts, some cider/cocoa available in the bar, etc. Your entrance fee would be $75 which would cover the hall rental, a table, advertising, etc.

Please let me know if you are interested ASAP. I am mostly just gathering interest so I know if it's worth renting the hall. Thanks!

I'm interested in participating, but I want to know a few things first.

1.  What sort of publicity are you planning on doing?  Do you have a mailing list/postcards, fliers, posters, other? 

2.  How many people are you expecting as visitors/ how many booths?

3. Where in NE is this?

Thanks--talk to you soon.

I'd be interested but I'd like the same kind of info that stickeravenger asked.  I love Minneapolis, I've been thinking there should be something like this going up there for a while.  Keep me posted!

I talked to my sister and she'd also be interested.  That's probably two people on board, anyway  Smiley

I'd be interested, as well--but also need more info.

Ditto on needing a little more info. Thanks.

Hey all, thanks for the questions. I am postponing this until next year when I will have adequate time to prepare. My plan/vision is this: The craft fair will be in November or early December '05. It will include traditional booths and hopefully a fashion show, and possibly a "charity donation" component. I hope to include an array of vendors, both hipster-types and more traditional crafters - I will have applicants send a sample or photo of their work. The show will be well advertised via ads, flyers, a website etc. No idea on attendance since I've never done this before (ie no guarantees - it's a $50 risk). I'll post again on the MN Board and Crafty Biz Ventures when I am more in control of the details. Thanks for giving me a "feel" for the interest, and let me know if you are interested in helping plan. I am happy to have some volunteers! I am hoping for a really fun, profitable event!

You might want to get in touch with Leah - the craftster admin goddess.  She and some of her brick and mortar business partners been very active in the Boston Bazaar Bizarre, which is kind of a punk/alt craft fair:



You might just want to check out the BB site and see if it makes sense to piggyback on this group a bit.  They probably also have great tips about starting something like this in the Twin Cities.

I've been looking for some opportunities to use some of my business skills for something more fun than retail software, so let me know if you want help getting something like this together.
