Advise Regarding California Craft Shows

By Sive Iver

When starting your own business it is always good to gather as much information as you can. Having a lot of information will give you guidelines on what to do and what not to do. If this is your first time to do a California Craft show read on to be guided.

Look for craft shows or fair near your area. This will lower you investment cost for your gas and there will be a lesser time working around your area. Your marketing cost can also be less since you are advertising to your friends in your area.

Once you know when and where the shows will be also plan out to display your goods in different location. Take advantage of the different shows and location that you can distribute your product. It is better to not to put all you eggs in one show.

Let your event organizers know all of the things or materials you will need for your show. Things like number of table and electric sockets needed, dont assume that they will know what you need. They do have other things to think about.

Having paid and scheduled your crafts show will not be enough. Your products will not sell as much when you just put them on the table and let them sell them selves. Customers are attracted to the display you will have. So make sure to add some decorations to your booth like table cloth and flowers.

Sometimes your first craft show will be a little disappointing. So it is good to keep an open and positive out look because it will help uplift your morale. Remember it usually take 2-3 shows before one will get a hang of how the craft show goes.
