Hi,

I sew handbags and I'm going to be participating in my first craft fair this November.  I was told that there was going to be a lot of other handbag designers there.  Do you have any advice or tips on things I could do to stand out or draw people to my table?  Do you have any reccommendations on ways to display my work?
Thanks so much for your help.

Minette

i love shopping craft fairs!  my opinion is, if someone likes handbags they don't care how many other handbag booths there are, they will see them all and buy the bag they like best. 

personally, i visit booths because i am attracted to what they are selling.  so i think the key is to invest in displays that show off your work.  for handbags i would say those spinning round racks seem to work well.  but you could make something on your own.  keep in mind buyers love to touch the bags.  there are also a lot of small children with bad mothers so keep them at adult heights.  and try to keep the booth from being too congested, bring extras and leave them stored under the table, but dont feel like you have to put everything out at once. 

and always put prices on your items.  if i dont see a price, i assume it cost too much and move on.
