So many moms are very talented crafter’s, and enjoy making items such as afghans and sweaters to name a few. But did you know that there are ways to make money with your crafts. Many moms go to craft fairs and sell their items their. You may even want to think about making kitchen towels, dish cloths, and lots of other very simple things.
When it comes to craft fairs the smaller items sell a lot better and quicker than the big inventory items. Scarfs can also be great sellers if you sell them along with slippers or socks. Anything that you have that people really like and are looking for will definitely be easy to sell. There are usually craft fairs every weekend you just have to find where one is located in your area.
There are several things that you want to take into consideration when thinking about participating in a craft fair. First you will want to check the price of your table/ or booth and make sure that the daily fee is not too high. You do not want to end up losing money at the end of the day. It also will help if you have some kind of theme for your booth that would really attract some attention. Use your imagination and be creative.
Before you rent your booth or table, it would be a good idea to visit a few fairs and see what the popular booths are. This may help to give you some ideas as to what your booth will look like. Another suggestion is to try selling some of your items at flea markets. You can usually rent a space for a few weeks or as long as a month. Start out slow and really take your time when trying to figure out what you want to sell.
Another suggestion is to try and sell your items online. Ebay is a great place to start, you can post as many items as you like and you can charge whatever you want. You will have to include pictures with your items. Make sure that your pictures are very clear and your items can be seen. If you have a blurry picture or a if the picture is of very poor quality then you can be sure that it will be a lot harder to sell your items.
Also make sure that the price that you set is reasonable and not too high. Also try talking to other moms in your area that also enjoy crafting. They are sure to know all of the places to sell your crafts and they will probably even be able to suggest places where you can get your materials cheaper. Just don’t kill the joy of your crafting, you should enjoy your craft and seeing others enjoy them as well.
