    I have never had a craft booth, but I’ve been wanting to try having one for a while now. Do you have any pointers for someone just getting started? Also where/how do you find out about craft fairs and signing up?

      Sure! What sorts of pointers are you looking for?

      As far as finding shows, the best way to do that is to just start applying for shows in your area and talking to artists who do shows now. Word of mouth is a great way to find out what’s going on in your area. Most festivals have websites where you can sign up for notifications about when applications go up. A good way to get started is to just keep an eye out for shows you’d like to do and go from there.

    Great post Becky. You’re crafty AND shrewd. I wish I could have bought that Cupcapron at one of your shows. You should go on Craft Tour.

      Aw, thanks Tim! I did a few out of town shows last year (Crafty Bastards in DC, Chatty Crafty in Chattanooga, and Hello Craft’s show in Portland). That’s a whole new math equation, between transporting display things and merch and paying for hotel/food/rentals. Out of town shows are super fun, though! It’s always nice to meet a whole new crowd of crafty peeps.
