Since I had plenty of product - over a dozen different types of soap, scarves, cowls, fingerless gloves, quilted hot pads, and cotton dishcloths - I focused on the booth itself. I needed two folding tables, tablecloths, and signage. The first thing I did was pull out the old chalkboard that I had used for many years in our homeschool when my children were young. It definitely needed a make-over. After a few coats of fresh black chalkboard paint, it looked fashionably shabby, but now was more usable for what I hoped would draw people in to sniff, touch, and buy my soaps.
If you are an experienced vendor at an arts and crafts or farmers market, I would love to hear about your experiences. What is your favorite aspect of working a show? What helpful tips and advice can you give me?
Thanks for stopping by my booth for a virtual tour!
