Here are a few snapshots of the Holiday Fair over the weekend. It was fun to meet some new people and see some returning customers as well! Last year was a huge success, so I wasn't sure what to expect this year. Somehow, I doubled last years sales!! It feels wonderful to have your hard work paid off and to know your business is working. I had my amazing sister there to help all day. She also took these photos for me (you can see her in the mirror;) ) with her new fabulous camera. She is an incredible support to me and I am so grateful for her! Thank you Maria! There were many other talented vendors, and its always motivating to meet other small business owners!
Now...if only I could zap all of these into my shop. :)
Top 3 Craft Fair Tips (Things I am learning):
1.) Have everything visibly priced. It helps as a consumer when you are considering your purchase. I also put a mirror in my station so people could try on items and decide how they looked.
2. Make the atmosphere reflect your business. I used paper signs with the same colors, fonts, and logo as my shop. It helps customers to connect if they have seen your products before.
3. Offer incentives. I offered facebook fans a special discount. I also held a gift card raffle for anyone who wanted to write down their name and phone #.
Do you have any tips you want to share??? I have another craft fair coming up in December:)
