This is not limited to your imagination. Anything handmade most customer swill appreciate. Many handcrafted items do well at craft fairs and what’s even better is you get to pack less in your vehicle when you’ve had a great day. When the big day arrives and your ready to hit the road to your destination for the fair, have a checklist and make sure you bring all the necessary items you will need. A calculator that prints out receipts comes in handy for the customer that buys several items at a time. You can also bring a generic receipt pad that is found in stationery supply stores. You will want to include newspaper wrap of some sort to wrap the purchased item if you are selling fragile goods. Don’t be fooled if you think wood is not fragile. Gently cut wood pieces can be broken if they were dropped and should be treated as if they glass. The customer will appreciate the extra care you take in packing their item as well.
One piece of good advice you may to consider is the location in which the craft show is being held. Having attended many shows I have found that location, location, location really does matter if you want to have a chance to make some decent change. One of the best shows we have done is one which was on the waterfront in Glouster, MA. It was right on the cove that looked out into the ocean and the days there were glorious. It really was like taking a mini vacation. We had inexpensive accommodations as well because we stayed in a nearby campground. I can remember one craft vendor not far from us was doing extremely well with selling and boasted about the fact he had reached $4,000 in sales. Mind you, this place had a lot of tourists foot traffic!
