So, I havent blogged in a while but there was good reason...School is BACK in session. I know you can understand. But, if there is one thing that is great about the school year starting it all the craft fairs, craft shows and bazzars that are sure to be right around the corner. My dream would be to do 5 in one year. Is that too much to ask? Maybe so for now. But I am hopeful. I know that when I am ready that exactly what will happen. Until then, I wont "dispise small beginnings."
Here are some pics of my craft booth last year. I really tried to step it up a bit and look more professional. I think I did alright. I hope to get better each time I give it a go. If I would make a list of somethings I would like to improve it would be:
1. Make a list of things I plan to bring before the show and use it to mark what I sold.
That way I can look back later and see the exact items I had and what buyers bought
2. Listen harder for suggestions on what buyers wish I had
I think people love to see practical things and sometimes buyers are the best inspiration.
3. Bring something to work on at my booth.
I wont be staring at them as they shop and they can see that I do actually make my products.
4. Work on props that would lift my products to eye level.
I dont think customers like having to bend too much to see things at a booth.
5. Work my display by making it look homelike and inviting.
I want to be the booth that cathes someones eye and they just have to come over to get
a closer look.
I have tons more that I want to do better but I'll share them another time. Let me know what you like and dislike and what you think I could change about my booth.
