One of my disabilities is that I have tremors.. and due to my tremors, I'd dropped my iPad a few too many times, cracking the screen and causing some of the functions not to work.. But I digress. At the end of the weekend, I'd made $325 in sales. My booth fee was $50, and then I paid for lunches. So in the end, I had roughly $250 in profits. Not bad.. but not great either. I was hoping for more. Despite the low sales, I would consider it a success. I learned a lot, met some amazing people, and was still able to replace my iPad! I ended up getting a Samsung Galaxy Note, rather than another iPad. Amazon.com was having an awesome Cyber Monday sale and I got it for $200 off retail price. So I was a happy camper. Still figuring it out, but I REALLY love it!
As for the actual craft fair... one of the things I struggled with was my display. What was an appropriate way to display the wide variety of wares I offer. I bought a small Christmas tree and hung up a wide array of ornaments. People like to touch! Under the tree, I put all the hand built ceramic mugs and tumblers, so they looked like presents. I had a revolving display for my pendants/necklaces, and used a cookie cooling rack propped up on a plate display for my earrings! The earring display has room for improvement for sure. I also made a display for my buttons, by hammering nails into boards and propping them up (which you can kind of see in the photo). The second image isn't the greatest quality, my hubby took it with my iPad, so the resolution is iffy. But you get the general idea.
