I absolutely love these hand-embroidered necklaces by MOSS. They are so intricate and lovely…it’s like wearing a tiny piece of art around your neck. And you can’t beat the price either. The bee necklace (above) is only $25! She also does gorgeous crocheted jewelry too, like the adorable little acorn and stylish assymetrical necklaces shown below. Be sure to check out her etsy shop. If you live around Portland, try to catch her at a craft fair – she’s got more beautiful things that aren’t yet online!
These full of character plush creatures from Noelle Doodle make the best gift for babies and kids! They’re super soft and cuddly (and many of them don’t have any choking hazards like buttons or small attached parts). Matilda has a couple and just loves them. And she freaks out every time we see the Noelle Doodle booth at craft fairs. She’s a big fan! She was pining hardcore for the alligator shown below. Click here to visit her etsy shop.
p.s. Plus, Noelle is super sweet and it’s always great to support such a nice crafter.
Cathy and I have decided to take everything we’ve learned selling at craft fairs over the past handful of years (AND what we’ve learned organizing Crafty Wonderland) and offer it to the public for a mere $35! We’re teaching a Craft Fair 101 class at DIY Lounge! Space is limited, so get your seat today!
Here’s the official class description:
Whether you are just starting out or are an experienced seller, this class will help you navigate the world of applying to and selling at craft fairs and give helpful insight from two ladies who have been selling at fairs for years and now organize and run a successful fair. Subjects that will be covered include:
* The application process – presenting yourself and your work well
* The dos and don’ts of booth layout
* Pricing your work
* Selling at larger national fairs
* Selling tips – credit card processing & how to maximize sales
* And oh-so-much-more!
Students will receive a printed handout chock full of resources, tips and secrets!
