Need to Know: Craft Show Best Sellers

pinit fg en rect gray 20 Need to Know: Craft Show Best Sellers

Ever wonder which, of the tons of items that you make, products you should bring with you to a craft fair? It can be a challenge to bring everything in your inventory if you make something that is large and difficult to transport or even if you make something small, how do you guess how much of it to bring? If you’ve been doing craft shows for a while, you can probably guess pretty well about what color scarves you’ll need more of and which earrings you’ll need to make more of before the big show. For those of you just starting to sell at shows (like me), it can be much more difficult to keep these things in mind when gathering together product for the craft show.

I’ve been selling on Etsy for a while now, but I know that the items that sell well on Etsy are not necessarily going to be the same items that sell well to the people visiting the craft show. Luckily, the internet is always full of fun advice and information from people that have been/ are selling at craft shows! From what I’ve noticed so far, small take-away items do great! People love buying little trinkets and gifts from craft shows because it’s a cute and unique gift they can hand even someone they don’t know very well. You don’t want to give someone the same box of chocolates you do every year, but what about some delicious chocolates that come in a handmade paper box with a little birthday message inside?

Here are some ideas to consider when building your inventory for a craft fair:

  • ┬áHolidays – think stocking stuffers, teacher’s gifts, neighbors gifts, gift card holders
  • Thanks – everyone has someone they want to say thanks to
  • Shiny – this may sound trite, but get something that attracts people’s eyes to your booth right away
Here are some other ideas for Craft Show Best Sellers:

What have you seen to be some of your best selling items?

  1. Greetings! Very useful advice within this post! It’s the little changes that make the most significant changes. Thanks for sharing!

    Never seen shoulder-throws to protect office suits and cocktail dresses from babies throwing up… Bibs all over the place, but mommie-bibs are just as necessary :-)). Stiff, thick pads to be foreseen for the shoulders, with Velcro strips to take soiled parts off easily for washing. Maybe an idea for craftsters ? The commercial circuit doesn’t offer anything for that…

    I make baby’s clutch balls and have found that they only sell at craft sales. People have to pick them up and squeeze them to make up their mind to buy them. I tried selling them on ebay, but got no bids at all. My dad made wooden scroll saw pictures and had the same problem. People seem to have to see them up close to pick one. Both the balls and wooden pictures sell great at craft shows.

  4. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to understand a lot approximately this,
    like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you just could do
    with some % to force the message home a little bit, however
    instead of that, that is fantastic blog. A great read.
    I’ll definitely be back.
