Crafts shows are always one of my favorite parts of the holidays. At a craft show, you can always find something fun and homemade that might be the perfect gift for someone. I’ve often thought about making soap and selling it at a craft show, but I really had no idea how to go about it.
Well, if I would have known about this site, I could have done it a long time ago! Here at this site, you can learn all the ins and outs of selling your crafts at a craft show near you. From how to get in to how much you should charge your customers, this site can help you. Start your journey off by looking to the side menu where you will find all the sections of the site. They are:
How To Get In – Here you will learn how to get in to sell your products at craft shows, as well as, some tips for who to talk to about it and even where you might want to start at.
Your Products – Not sure what you want to sell? Well, you can get some great ideas from this section, along with some good ideas on where to look to find out what is currently selling at other craft shows.

So, finding a price that gets people to buy it, but still making a profit for yourself is quite a quandary. Here in this section, you will learn all about how to best price your products to sell.
Supplies – What could you possibly need to set up at a craft show? Well, it’s more than I would have ever thought. This section gives great tips on what you should bring with you to a craft show. Some even with presentation in mind.
Setting Up – Here you’ll find tips about when to arrive at the show and how long to stay, as well as, how you can place your products so they sell better.
Photo Page 1 and 2 – Here you can see photos from the author’s craft show experiences. It was pretty cool to actually see the progression from his early shows to the more recent ones.
