Craft Fair 101


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!
