It’s Time to Gear Up for Craft Shows!

October 19, 2010 in General

Yes, it’s that time of year: Time for the annual fall and winter craft festivals! Craft shows can be a fantastic way to promote your business. I take my embroidery machine and all the products I can fit into my van, I embroider on the spot, and take orders for things I can’t get finished that day. I stay very busy, my name and website are promoted, and I make some new friends! Are there any other benefits? You get to see all of the items that everyone else is making, perhaps do a little shopping yourself (if you have the time!), and make some money in the process!

  1. Where can I get more information on craft shows that are worth attending?

  2. Well, sometimes you just have to try them out first. I would check the paper for local fairs and go walk around first. Make sure that they have a large crowd and not a lot of competition for what you are selling. If you like it, get on their list for next year. Many of the ones in this area are held in local schools.
