I'm still new to the craft fair world. So far I have two outdoor fairs under my belt and one of them was a two day event. I did alright at both of them making just over twice my booth fee. I have enjoyed the shows and the people and and will be applying to both again. During the holidays I started looking for an indoor show to help me sell some Inventory before we moved.
I ended up doing a very small show at a high school. I did manage to make twice my booth fee, but when the fee is only $25 it is not very impressive. The good thing is that indoor shows are very easy to transport and set up and I would do another one if it was a better fit. I learned with this experience that the less expensive a show is seems to correlate to customers looking for less expensive items. I do not fit in this category. You live and you learn.
And because everyone loves booth photos, here is my first indoor set up for a Holiday show.
Have you done an indoor fair? Has anyone else had the same experience with a less expensive fair bringing customers unwilling to make more expensive purchases? Does anyone have any constructive feedback on my booth set up. I'm working on some new branding for my upcoming fairs this season!
