Bad Year for Craft Fairs

This year was the most dismal year for craft fairs that I have ever had. I barely made back the money I put out to rent my space. The attendance has been less than half that there has been in the past and most people aren't even stopping to look in the booth but just walking on by. It has been very discouraging to say the least. I am seriously thinking of not doing any shows next year and possibly for the next couple of years. Maybe when the economy picks back up again and people want to go to craft fairs and actually spend money in this area I will consider doing shows again. It is just too much work for so little return right now and i would rather put that energy into my online shops.

The Craft Fair That Wasn't

Well my only spring craft fair ended up being a major bust. Don't know exactly what doomed it because it was well advertised. It could have been that it was the first 60 degree day of the season or it could have been the Home Show that was happening only a couple of miles down the road (which had record breaking attendance). Whatever it was it made for a long day. I only had two sales that were made by other vendors. It was a good chance to network with the other vendors but still a major disappointment. I guess I won't be doing that fair again next year.

Spring Show

I am doing my very first Spring Craft Fair on April 9th. I'm really hoping that it is a good show and one that I will want to do again in the future. I would like to do more show throughout the year instead of having them all grouped in the fall.

I will be making some Easter cards and Mother's Day cards for the show but those will be the only newer items I will be adding.

So I am excited and am really hoping for a good day.
