This weekend I did my first, honest-to-goodness craft fair, and I learned a lot! I had a great time, and made some fantastic sales, but I also have a lot to improve.
I was at the Ocean Charter School in Culver City, CA. It was about a half hour drive from our apartment, so my husband and I loaded up our tiny car at 6:15 in the morning, and made it down there. It was such a cute fair! I went to a Waldorf school, so it reminded me of childhood. My crocheted animals went over really well, as did my superhero masks. I realized that having items at different price points really helped.
Things I need to remember for next time (because I would DEFINITELY come back next time):
1. Get a tablecloth or simple sheet for the tables. Don't use my blankets, you can't see them.
2. Bring hangars, for my shawls, and hope there's something to hang them on.
3. Request a corner booth again, because that helped out a million times over.
4. GET MORE BUSINESS CARDS!
5. Try to find more school fairs, since those seem to be better for me than craft fairs.
Overall, I had a great time!
