I’m branching out, kind readers. Not far, but I’m branching out. In two short months, I will be participating in my first craft fair. The event is at my church so it’s a comfortable environment, but I know that this bazaar has a good reputation in the Charlotte area. To me that equates to a good turnout and craft aficionados who know their stuff. Commence worrying!
Although I work in a people job, I have no confidence looking people in the eye and talking about my products. A lovely associate at my craft store asked what made my scarves special last weekend, and I didn’t have an answer for her. Not a good start! My education will be helpful for thinking about the business things, but does anyone have any advice for me as I prepare for my first fair? Tips on display? How to talk to people who aren’t impressed? How does the shy girl make a sale?! What will I need that I won’t think of?
