My name is Christin and I’m a freelance creative living in the Midwest. I enjoy building websites, graphic design and of course – making my crafts. Prior to my current career path, I worked as a hotel manager and in retail. Since that time, I’ve spent several years selling with my husband at various fairs, festivals, and markets.
Although I had a well-rounded background, we learned a great deal through trial and error, and through the generosity of fellow crafters who helped show us the ropes. The craft booth website and blog is my way of sharing all I’ve learned to help others be successful with a handmade business.
One of the key things we learned is that this market is extremely competitive. Gone are the days where you can just throw a few things on a table at a local high school and hope to rake in a lot of money. Today’s events are all about modern branding, professional staging, having an online presence via a website and social media and being more like a true retail business.
Here, you’ll learn how to develop the marketing skills and techniques to sell your products. Get DIY craft display ideas, booth inspirations, craft fair sales tips and much more.
The information provided here is especially important for newcomers who are perhaps nervous about attending their first craft shows, but it applies to crafters of all experience levels.
Give some knowledge, take some knowledge. We can all help each other succeed and encourage consumers to help families and their local communities by thinking outside the box store for more of their purchases.
