1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Merchant Credit Card Processing on: July 29, 2006 02:40:49 PM
I show at an outdoor market every weekend all year long, and I need a new credit card processor, I am unhappy with my current one.  I have been using ProPay, and I don't like their system, they have a limit on how much you can process every month, and offer very poor support. 

I'd like to hear what other people use in direct sales, not over the web, but face to face with customers.  Does your company require a swipey machine?  Do they rent or sell them, or can you buy a 3rd party machine?  How are the fees?  Do you like the customer service?  Do they have an option to enter the information online?  What about wireless machines? 

I have been looking into Costco's program, has anyone here used it?

Check out Eastern Market, it's every weekend, all year round.  There are crafters, like myself, as well as fine artists, photogs, tons of jewelers, some importers, and even a flea market!  It's a blast.

I actually got a chance to meet this amazing crafty guy at the Punk Rock Craft Fair at UMCP this past weekend.  I saw him walk in with this boombox on a strap, and I ran right over and said "You're that guy from Craftster!" 

Ladies, he is even cuter in person.  If he wasn't way too young for me (and I didn't already have a darling boyfriend) I would have asked him out on the spot. 

Anyways, hi again, i hope the wristband you got from me is treating you well.  You have inspired my boyfriend to try and make something like this for himself.   Or buy one from you at least!

This was an old project from a ReadyMade magazine.  If you check their archives or your personal stash of mags, you can find really details instructions.

oohh! i really like that! i used this stencil to make a t-shirt- hehe

for the record, that stencil is from www.protest-records.org, excellent site, good stencils and great music. 

i made 3 sizes of that stencil a year ago, made shirts for all of my friends, which we are all wearing to the polls tomorrow.

It is really funny how people think of these sorts of things.  I've been putting random things in the oven to melt them for a while now, and I had stumbled upon the utter awesomeness of melted CDs a while back, i figured if records melted, CDs would do something equally cool.  it's great to see other people coming to the same conclusions and making such awesome stuff.  i'll have to post some of mine when i get a good picture taken.

I made 2 of these but they were made in about 1/2 an hr each so they are a bit skody...
my camera is charging but i'll attempt 2 put up pix sometime...

A half hour each?  Jesus, it takes me at least 7 hours per purse.  It takes half an hour for the glue to dry!

I met these people this weekend who call themselves Crafty Bastards.  You should check them out, look in the washingtoncitypaper.com site and search for them, they're organizing a big craft fair for October.

How fun!  I used to make jewelry out of old keyboards, and got really bored with it.  This sounds like way more fun.

If you take a piece of wire screening (like for windows) and an old toothbrush and some runny paint (perhaps textile ink would work), you can get some interesting speckling. Just dip brush in paint, shake off excess, hold screen over fabric, and rub toothbrush across it (screen works best if in some type of wooden frame to keep it straight, as opposed to bendy). That's how people spatter cabinets in country style houses, but with the right colors, I think it could be more 80s-fabulous than speckled hen.

i used to do that in girl scouts all the time.  anyways, i just did polka dots for the other wristbands.
