Default First Craft Show Finished.

I finally did my first craft show.


It was a 2day event at a large local park. I paid $90 for the 10x15 space for both days.
After my booth fee and food I made about $350. Which isnt bad considering there were tons of other bow and tutu vendors around me and because we were in a HORRIBLE spot. Almost all of my regular customers that came to see me couldnt even find us.
So that sucked and I will deff be requesting a different spot next year.

I have another one day event this coming Saturday. But my FIL is in the band thats playing so he got me the booth for free. So hopefully we do awesome.

Thank you.
I'm currently looking for more shows in my area. So fingers crossed that I can find some good ones. I was invited to a County-Wide Antique & Yard Sale but I don't know if I would do good there. What do you ladies think? Would you do it? It's $60 for two days inside or $35 for two days outside. On Nov 9th

the problem with antique stuff is that people are going to go for antique stuff. I really dont think you'll do well. I went to one, and the bow seller wasn't really do well at all.

Did you make your own bow display in the background? Impressive if so!

I don't, but my hubby does. I just tell him what colors, prints I want and the measurements of what I need displayed. He makes all my displays.

Well I finished my second show Saturday. I think I did MUCH better. It was a booth I got for free from my FIL since he was playing in the band for the show. So I only had to pay for gas and it was about 2 hours away. But this event had about 2k people and was very small. I was the only bow person. But I still ended up making $275 in one day. So Im happy. I probably wont do anymore this year because the holidays are coming and we are always so busy with everything else, but I deff plan on doing more next year.
