I can locate craft fairs and local market/ fairs but... there's no information for signing up for vendors. Do I need to contact a local chamber of commerce? I'm at a loss and feeling completely ignorant and ill equipped  Sad What am I missing???

I don't need specifics, I know everything varies by location.  We're located in central Illinois but I just don't even know where to start!  Thanks in advance.

Contact the organizations that organize the craft fairs or, if you know other crafters in your area, call them and see how they get in. if there are any mom and pop craft stores in your area, talk to them as well. Another option is to go to the craft fairs and ask the vendors. You'll be networking and gaining info at the same time.

Call every school in your area. This time of year there are plenty of school craft shows. Ask if that school is putting on a fair and if so, ask for the contact of the organizer.

There's NOTHING at a craft show, or on Etsy, anybody NEEDS. NOTHING.
