1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Advice on organizing a craft fair? on: February 01, 2007 08:09:54 AM
I live in an area where there are very few craft fairs (at least as far as I can tell), but I have loads of very crafty and artistic friends who are all interested in finding opportunities to sell their goods.  It seems like all that I can find are really expensive for vendors or require an extensive application.  I'm hoping to have a venue that's more friendly to part-time crafters, DIYers.

Do any of you have advice on how to start a craft fair?  For example, is it possible to do a "yard sale" with multiple crafters without a business permit?  Do we need to get a business permit to organize something on property that we don't own or could we potentially convince the owner to donate the space (thinking maybe a church or something)?

i love it!  i just recently posted looking for ideas of how to recycle the dust jackets of books and could probably adapt them to this idea.  thanks for the tutorial!

these are great ideas.  a friend suggested using leftovers to make paper beads.  i'm thinking that between cutting up particularly interesting ones for decoupage or gift cards, paper beads, journals, book ends, etc, i should be able to avoid having most of them go in the trash. 

thanks for the suggestions! much appreciated.

i work in a library and when new books are cataloged, the jackets are taken off and thrown out.  they are usually on nice thick, glossy paper and there is a huge variety in the titles and cover art (any subject you can think of).  i've gotten the okay to keep the jackets if i want them, but i'm trying to think of ways to just them.  i'll have to be careful of copyright issues, but if anyone has any ideas i'd love to hear them.

hello, i'm new to savannah and new to craftster.  i'm interested in if you guys know of good fabric stores, flea markets, thrift stores, etc.  i know that savannah occasionally has craft fairs and with SCAD here there seems to be a decent amount of crafting going on, i just don't know how to get in the know about it all.  i have a few friends here that have been talking about trying to start a craft group or stitch and bitch.  if you know about anything else going on, i'd be all ears.
