Thread Name: BS: Craft stalls at festivals
Subject: RE: BS: Craft stalls at festivals
My wife & I organize the crafts area at our yearly folk festival in Maryland (same group that does the FSGW Getaway)..
We strive to have folk-related crafts and keep a pretty good standard...small group, only about 25 booths, and carefully chosen. 'Most' folks make decent money, and a few have been coming for 12-14 years...we get 8,000-10,000 people in the park in 2 days, and the crafts are well attended.
The best show we ever had was 3 years ago there...and it rained. (maybe that's why)
