{a few craft show tips}

Hi friends! I hope you are all having a great week! I have a show this weekend up in the Central Coast {email if if you are from there and want to come see me!} so I have been sewing like crazy to prepare for it! Anyhow, I finished all my sewing 2 days early which NEVER happens so I thought I'd share with you a few of my craft show prep tips!

1) Set up your booth/table in your house exactly how you will at the show! This way you know exactly what to bring and you won't forget anything!!!







2) I HATE pricing my items individually. It takes forever. So what I started doing was making photo tags of each item I'm selling and add the price when I edit the photo {I used PicMonkey this time!}. Here are a few of the photo tags in collage form...

Now that I made the collage, I'm thinking I could have just done that as a "price menu". Oh well, I already ordered the photos. Anyhow...

I get them printed as 4x6's via 1 hour photo at Walmart and then attach them to my containers with a clothespin. Like this...

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you like my tips! I'm super excited for this show!!! Can't wait!

  6. I love this idea. I'm doing my first craft show on Saturday and don't want to have chalkboard signs for prices.
