i attended my first ever arts and crafts fair last Saturday and here are a few lessons learnt:
1) Don't go in with high expectations.. lots of the times your work may not be as good as you think 2) I'm not a good seller.. I'm fine in communicating in writing and what not, but I'm just too shy to approach people or call out to people to look at my pieces 3) Bring a mirror.. I had jotted that down and then completely forgotten about it! Doh.. 4) Although my pieces might not be to everyone's taste, I did receive quite a few compliments so I've just gotta keep trying 5) Business cards are invaluable. I already got an order request today asking if it's true I offere free shipping and how they should proceed with purchasing! yippeeee
PS. That image is of my display that I had set up during the fair. What do you think?
