Planning For An Upcoming Craft Fair - First Time!
My friend and I are participating in a craft fair for the first time ever. I am super excited and a little worried. Excited to have the possibility to earn a few extra bucks doing what I love, creating stuff. And worried because, well it is my first time and I want to make sure my overhead does not exceed the sales.
We will be offering a variety of handcrafted items, with a focus of tie dyed items. They are an item that seems timeless and so much fun to make! My friend is amazing at this and I can certainly hold my own. I will also be doing some smaller crocheted items, such as washcloths, coasters, and cup coozies.
We do not have a "business" so I do not feel that limiting my offerings by sticking to a "branding" attitude is needed here. I just want to spotlight the various things I love to create.
I have quite a few ideas and some time to work on them as the fair is a bit over a month away. I was thinking of offering handmade gel air fresheners, sewn kitchen towels, and I may just leave it at that.
We have an 8'X8' booth with a table and I am bringing a clothing rack for the tie dye clothing.
Has anyone had experience with this? Any ideas?
