I recently bought this:
http://www.etsy.com/transaction/29950234

I love it!

But when I went to a recent crafty show I bought two things and neither place offered a receipt of any kind. I paid cash both times.

So now I'm thinking that receipts are silly... but I really want to use my awesome new receipt book.

So my question is...
Do you give receipts for purchases at craft shows?

Thanks in advance for comments.

I usually only give receipts at in-person events if it's a credit card transaction. But I do like to keep a receipt book on hand because sometimes you might have someone that wants a receipt for whatever reason.

If you do want to make it standard that you give out receipts, you can always turn it into a promotional tactic. Put your website address on the receipts, so that it doubles as a business card too.

I agree that you should give them out for non-cash purchases. If someone pays me cash, I ask if they'd like one. If your craft show is busy, it may hold people up, and keep new shoppers from approaching, if you have to take time to give everyone a receipt.

Thanks for the opinions. I'm now leaning toward not, but I guess it just depends. I can always ask if they want a receipt.

Most vendors I have dealt with have given receipts.

Depending on how good your inventory skills are it is probably a good way to ensure that everything adds up.  Also I have been advised on numerous occasions to give a receipt whenever you accept payment from someone for anything.  It is a way of protecting yourself.
