I am going home to Colorado for the summer - and the big craft fair there is the Carbondale Mountain Fair. I've checked out the information, and normally a 10x10 booth costs $350. The fair runs for 3 days and they claim it attracts upwards of 20,000 visitors... it is also "juried". $350 is far beyond my budget - so I emailed the coordinators of the fair asking if they had any discounts for students/locals. Turns out, as a local (well, former local) I could share a booth with another local artist for $100 plus 15% of sales.

I'm not very experienced when it comes to craft fairs - I've only done one small one before. I'm debating whether or not to participate in this one. Is the $100 + 15% a good deal? Would it be worth my while? It sounds like a huge fair with tons of people and high end goods (which is good - I found at my last fair my stuff was considered "ridiculously expensive"). Any advice/suggestions? Anyone participated in this fair in the past? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Yeah! Carbondale Mountain Fair!!  OK, so this is way, way too late and I've never participated in the fair but, I've been to the fair many times when I lived in the valley and when I've been back visiting!  I think sharing a booth there for $100 + 15% is a great deal!  That's for all three days? There's always a lot of people there but unfortunately I'm not sure if they were the buying type.  Have fun if you go!!
