Selling at Craft Fairs: Are They For You?
October 7, 2008 by swakembroidery
You love what you create and you love sharing with others. Has anyone ever approached you and said, “You know, you should really consider making and selling these things!” While the compliment is very flattening, you may think that you enjoy making items yourself but wonder whether selling those items would be a good idea. Is it all worth it? It may or may not be.
Over the next few weeks we’ll help you explore the pros and cons of generating additional income by selling your creations. We’ll share some great tips on how to price your items, how to make an eye-catching display, creating that great first impression with customers, and then how to extend your business beyond the craft show.

Now that you’ve read our tips, we want to hear from YOU! If you have ever participated in a craft fair, we’d love to hear about your experiences with it! What kind of show was it? What did you sell? What suggestions would you give someone who was considering the possibility of entering into one?
We extend this invitation to our communities at both YouCanMakeThis.com, as well as SWAKembroidery.com! We can all learn from each other!
