Happy Monday Everyone!
I mentioned before that I will be doing my first ever Craft Show December 4th. I have been doing some research to get Ideas on how to do the show well (As well as a first timer can do). These are tips I found helpful in order to preparing for, and to have a successful craft show.These tips are assuming you have already found a show,have been accepted, and now you are preparing for a wonderful day of sales.

These are just a few helpful tips.
1. Make sure you have plenty of Marketing materials. Have things like Business cards, Postcards, mailing list, and other marketing tools like pens, pins etc.
Remember YOU are also marketing material. Dress the part.
2. DO NOT GO INTO DEBT!
3.Make sure everything is priced. EVERYTHING! or Easy to read signs.
4. Bring a friendly friend. Because lets face it not all creative people are super Extroverts.
5. Practice setting up your table at home to see what it will look like
