I just got a notice that we have been selected to have a booth at one of the bigger local “jurried” craft fairs this year. We have done smaller shows in the past and done failrly well selling pens and wine stoppers. This year we have added cutting boards to our line up.

Really excited about this craft fair. I have heard great reviews from the past. Now we just have to figure out pricing for everything.

I guess I should go make some more saw dust now.

Congratulations!! Welcome to the world of juried art & craft shows. You will find the customers have more money and will spend it at the higher end shows.

Where are you located? What show did you make it in?
