It’s (almost) show time!
Vending at a large event can be a lot of fun. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to watch people interact with what you make and to collect valuable feedback from customers.
Not surprisingly, getting ready for a big show takes a lot of work. Making sure you have (more than) enough inventory is just a small part of it. You also need to figure out how to attractively display your wares, get everything to and from the event, and bring along everything else you’ll need (receipt book, price cards, tape, pens, sunscreen, chairs, and snacks to name just a few).
We’ve been doing shows for a few years now and we get a little better each time. Here’s a look at some of the preparations for our next show. We’ll be part of the Bazaar Bizarre Craft Marketplace at Maker Faire Bay Area 2013 on May 18 & 19.
