Because I really can't make a decision...which would look better paired with black fabric, the red or the pink? On both fabrics, the skulls are about 4 inches by 3 inches. I think the pink might be a bit more vibrant than shown in the picture.

what is a reasonable price to expect to have to pay to be in a craft fair? i've never done one before so i don't know what would be good or too much.

for a 6 foot table im paying $30, it was 20 for  4 footer, and 40 for a 8 footer

amaryyllisroze - i like the red, its such a vibrant colour and really gets my attention, plus with black you can never go wrong with red, whereas pink and black i see more as a fad - but if you're all about fads pink may work for you.

msalowishus - it depends on a lot of things (if you get the table supplied/ if its indoors or outdoors.  but i've paid $20 up to $75 so far.  Typically i get a 10x10 outdoor space, but for an 8 foot table at a show i'm doing next week i think it was $50.

Ive got a question for you guys about trying things on at craft fairs. I make jewellery, and ive never done a fair ( yet) , but i was worried about people trying on jewellery and then walking away with it on. Obviously i wouldnt let them try on earrings for sanitary reasons...
Hi sweetjaime,
I just wanted to say that I would personnaly not buy any earrings without trying them on. I need to make sure that they fit rigth in my piercing or not. If you're worried about sanitary issues, maybe carry a bottle of disinfectant with you to the show and clean earrings that have been tried on? Just a thougth Smiley

I guess im the other wayaround, i would never expect to try on earrings. I know on the etsy community its a big no-no to show images of people wearing earings, because it grosses people out.After all, ear infections can pass through earrings.... Im pretty sure most people would expect to not try them on. I will have a mirror though so hey can hold them up to see how they look.

hey dishwasher...

you could really benefit from having some elevation on your table.  easy to do for free, just stick whatever boxes or bins you brought your merch in under the tablecloth.  Bonus points for having cool vintage boxes or something instead, then you don't need to cover them up.  with that kind of setup you can lean things against them vertically, which is eye-catching.
