i've done my share of craft fairs and i've noticed that people love to buy little things under $10. they also love to buy bigger items, but definetly have some lower priced items for the people who just want to buy "a little  something."

uniqueness is very important! try brainstorming to come up with something that you've never seen before or put a twist on something that you have. whether it's jewelry, soap, handmade paper journals, it has to be different and well made.

make sure your booth is eye catching so that people stop. multi leveled displays are good and try and keep things up high so that people don't have to bend down too much.

hope that helps.

Very good suggestons!!

See what you can find in a solid fabric to cover table (sheets work well).  Use lifts & levels (boxes, cans, pieces of  2 x 4) under fabric to get things at different hights. Price mark EVERY THING.  Don't put to many of each item out, way too many things "walk". Make sure oyu have pleanty of change. Also bags, & tissue to wrap breakables in.
Add you busnes card to each sale... you never know!
I've gotten some really goo repeat business this way

Julie, I just have to say that I absolutely LOVE your quote from Miss Piggy! My dreaded nickname as a child was Miss Piggy because I was on the chunkier side with blond curly hair and an upturned nose which haddn't developed yet. I wish I would've known that quote!! Tongue

Whatever's Clever! - prints, boxes and more!
