In this series of blogs I’m going to break down my 2013 craft show season – and it’s not all pretty. I’ve been to a few small shows but I’ve never entertained the idea of actually participating as a vendor in one until the beginning of this year. I seriously started doing research on various craft forums which included the Etsy forums. There seemed to be a lot of mixed reviews out in the interwebs about shows. I was able to take away a few points that helped me transition into becoming a vendor.
- Bring a credit card swiper.
- Bring a friend.
- Business cards.
- Tent, table, table cloths.
- Merchandise bags. (…which I totally forgot at my first show but we’ll touch on that in a later.)
- Change box and change.
- Plenty of items ranging in price.
In my next post I’ll go into detail about my first and second show!
