This is was my first craft show that I done. It was a small turn out because there was two more craft shows going on the same weekend. I wasn’t as organizined as I should be, some people were so professional with their displays. I had a variety of items to sell, cutting boards, bowls, keychains, containers, tops, candle holders and a few other items. Well, as far as money I paid all my expenses, gas, space rent and food. I sold 4 cutting/cheese boards, 2 bowls, one keychain and some spinning tops. Almost everyone that came by played with the spinning tops. It was a good first experience and I would do it again.

Glad to hear it was a good experience.Looks like a nice variety of stuff. My wife and I did our first craft fair a few weeks ago, and visited one yesterday. The set up is very important and we are trying to figure out how we can make ours better next year.

If you don’t mind me asking, did you make any profit after paying the entrance fees? How much did you price your items for?

Great job for your first attempt. Not only did you learn from the experience, you also made a little profit.
