My First Craft Fair Pt. 3

This is our final posts and video on how we prepped for our first craft fair. We showed you readers a few budget friendly ways to save money on displaying your table. You don’t want to spend unnecessary money before you begin to make a profit, right? This last video shows how we made our own banner with our name to be displayed and how to make use of a older piece of furniture found in my home for a showcase piece for my items.

And before you end the video I added a extra tip to make your display area POP!

My First Craft Fair Pt. 2

This posts and video offers some ideas on how to create a great vendor table with little or no money. The first project we did was a cylinder stand for the headband to show on. I needed something that the headbands could be on display, without taking up more room on my table. So, I used a few items to make my stand…

Materials

Burlap Ribbon

A cylinder container (wide enough to stand alone on a table)

glue gun w/ glue sticks

peg board tacks

scissors

So here is a video of how I started and complete the stand and how the headbands were able to hang on it.

 

 

 

 

 

My First Craft Fair!!!

Hello, Hello!!!!

Over the weekend I participated in my first Arts and Craft fair, yayyyyy! Its was a great learning experience for me. As a person who plans events, there were a couple of things that could have been done better, but it was good for me.
As you now know I make hand woven headbands and wanted to try and sell them as a trial run. Also I have been working on advertising and marketing my headbands and I want to thank http://bloggingcollective.com for helping me out with getting the word out about my product. If you are looking for help with your blog and YouTube channel check her out here.

To prep for the event I had to figure out how I was going to display my table.  Since It was my first event I did not want to spend a lot of money for the display. So I did a few DIY tutorials on ways I saved money displaying my vendor table. I will have those posts and videos coming soon.

Here is one my how the table ended up…first craft fair

I learned a lot and will be changing up the look of the table for other fair and events.
