It makes very good sense to get a square device for accepting credit cards. They give you the device for free and you only pay about 2.7% fee ONLY when you use it. You would be amazed at how convenient they are…not only at shows but in other situations. I sold a router on Craigslist recently and the purchaser was trying to talk my price down by saying he only had $25 less than the price I was selling it for…I asked if he had a credit card and ended up selling it using my square and iphone.
I started doing shows a couple of years ago. My wife and I have a lot of fun doing them and we have made a nice profit at each show… from the very first show.
My first show was local with a $200 booth fee…cheap by good show standards and we only do juried shows and have paid over $1000 for a booth on the high end…so $25 is well worth the experience you will learn from it.

There are some websites that offer excellent inffo if you are interested in craft shows…
