I've never been to one before because I've lived in a VERY rural area not close to anything. But I was wondering if anyone saw and/or offered to sell any 'unmentionable' type items. I'm talking from underwear, to cloth pads, to 'adult' themed items. Did anyone have a bad reaction to this? Would the fair have rules or restrictions on this? How would you present these sort of crafts? I was just wondering but I would really like to know just incase I do this in the future *hinthint* Wink

And another question, what if you wanted to take up a collection for a charity? Could you do that? And if you said "All proceeds go to so and so charity" could you keep a portion of the money to help pay for the materials you brought to make the stuff?

Another question but could you sell stuff at, like, county and state fairs? Cause then I could get too threes fairs in the fall if you can. Where i live at now, I am sort of close to where the State fair is held. Anyway, that is all of the questions i have for now. Thanks

the entire booth next ot me at the chicago renegade craft fair was handmade underwear.  they even had "models" walking around.  no one complained that i heard.

I wouldn't say "proceeds" but say "profits" instead.  that implies that you will be reimbursed for your supplies.
