I am so excited! I applied for my first craft show booth this past week. It is for a popular Christmas show in a small town near home. My mother is going to share the booth with me and my son wants to make a few things too! I have very fond memories of my parents and their friends doing this same show when I was in elementary school. It was so much fun to play in the park, eat the great food, and help with the customers.
Now, the work starts! I registered my business name and received my Texas State Sales Tax license! Woohoo…I’m official! I have also been working on my business cards. I think this will be on the front (to match my blog header):Next, we have to get the inventory going. I am still deciding what I really want to offer at the show…I keep coming up with ideas! It is so hard to narrow it down and just focus on a few things. Anyone else have that problem when it comes to crafting/creating?
My parents and I brainstormed a little this past weekend about how we are going to display everything…rain or shine. We came up with a few ideas, but I decided to do some more “research”…on Pinterest, of course! I now have a board entitled “Craft Show Ideas”. It is the start of a small collection of booth displays, cute set-ups, and show advice.
Have you ever done a craft show? Do you have some great advice or tips to share?
Please share your ideas with us in the comments section!
