Gearing UP for the Season's First Craft Show

I am a little nervous to say the least. On April 30th I will be selling at a craft show I found on line. It's brand new, and so far seems to have quite a large vendor response. I just hope the same is true for customers...paying customers that is.

Last years craft shows were a drag! I saw many a vendor packing up and leaving early due to low or absolutely NO sales. I had one show with no sales, and boy did that sting.

So here we are. A new year, a new show season, and I am trying to be optimistic. 

I'd like to hear from anyone who has had a "no sale" craft show, and what you did differently, if anything, at your next craft show. Do you pack up and leave early, or stick it out until the end? And finally, is a "no sale" craft show your fault, the promoters, the economy, or a combination of each? Your thoughts please?



  1. Good evening, Dawn,
    Oh, I hope you have good luck at your show. It was many years ago...hubby and I drove to a show...did all the set up...sat there...and sat there... and sat there...

    Finally we sold a few things, enough to pay our registration fees. We did stick it out to the end...but didn't go back. I'll be anxious to hear what your other commenters say. I think it is related to the economy, don't you?

    Have a wonderful weekend. ~Natalie

  2. Good luck. btw Heidi looks like a real sweetie. I recently talked a couple of good friends to keep a stray GSD "drop off" on their farm. They love her and are now converted to the cause. Here name is Lily. For Easter
