'Tis the Season (for Craft Shows)

October 17, 2018

I am not sure what I was thinking when I decided to do a Craft Show this year.  I used to do them years ago.  Trust me when I say they are a lot of work, very time consuming and exhausting.


Selling on Etsy and being as creative as I am, I have an over abundance of Inventory.  Doing Craft Shows seemed like one opportunity to reduce some of the surplus.  I worked hard for days getting ready.  What could I use to display my wreaths?  I researched several options and decided to go with the Rubbermaid white shelving units.  I ended up purchasing enough 12 inch by six foot shelves to wire tie together into three 24 inch by 6 foot towers.  I purchased S Hooks for connectors.  These worked out fantastic!  I also used the trifold peg board I had in storage from previous Shows, plus all of my metal stands and tri-pods, lol.  Bottom line is I too a lot of "stuff" with me.  Way too much for as small a Show as this turned out to be.  Lesson learned.  I took 56 wreaths and sold four.  I was okay with that.  I got the money back for the Show, the money back for all of the shelves I purchased, and still made a profit.


Lesson learned, don't take so much next time!  Man am I exhausted!
