I have been making some things recently (like Jewelry, totes, pants, skirts) and i was considering making some stuff for a high school craft show. I have no experience whatsoever and i dont know if i should do it. what kind of things would be considered acceptable? how much should you have before you start selling? i know the space rent is 25$. i really would like to try this out. any advise?Huh

I say go for it -- Worst case scenario, you'll lose your $25 and a day of your life. Chalk it up to a learning experience. And who knows -- It could go really well!

I agree with Serendipity, just go for it. Try to have more than enough just in case. You'll never know until you try.
Good luck!

Definetly do it! Build up enough inventory so that you feel you have a sufficient supply to last a day of browsing, and just go for it!  My business partner and I threw ourselves into a craft fair with no prior experience, and we ended up being quite profitable! You'll never know unless you give it a try. And if you want someone's opinion on your products, you're sure to find an honest critic on craftster. Good luck with everything!
