The First Annual Hometown Craft Show has passed. It had several stressful moments, but it ended well for the majority of the vendors I think. I’ve had several requests to let them know when next year’s show will be, and rent from booths and tables totaled nearly $400! This money goes directly to our county fair so it’s definitely supporting a great cause and the members of the fair board could not be more helpful or supportive.
This coming week, in an effort to document the process of organizing a craft fair and highlight the things that were done wrong and the things that were done right from my perspective as both coordinator and a vendor, I will be posting a 5-7 part series entitled How to Have (and How NOT to Have) a Craft Fair.
