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.
