Hello fellow fiber fanatics. I'm sorry it has been so long since I last posted. I have been frantically working on a multitude of projects to prepare to do my first craft sale. The sale was today. I sold a total of .......wait for it.......ONE HAT....ta da.
It was not a true craft fair, it was more like an indoor yard sale with a few crafters along for the ride. As a result, most of the shoppers were looking for steals, not creations. When someone mentioned that my $3.00 baby booties were over priced, I knew it was going to be a long day. Fortunately for me, my sister was by my side with her wonderful creations, to keep me company. Unfortunately for her, she was with me at the same dismal event.
My sister and I are planning to attempt selling at a true craft fair at the Airport Mall in Bangor, Maine on April 7rh, 2012. On the bright side, since we didn't sell much of our inventory, we won't have to prepare much for this craft fair. Hopefully, this will be a better market for our items and we will be more successful.
If I have any readers who are knitters and/or crocheters out there who do craft fairs, could you advise me about what sells well? What should I be designing and creating? What should I produce for the summer market? I will greatly appreciate any advice you can share with me for a successful craft fair.
Happy Creativity to you all!
