Thread Name: BS: Craft stalls at festivals
Subject: RE: BS: Craft stalls at festivals
I've sold my items at festivals, block parties and garage sales. I make beautiful decorative bird houses, wall placques and small paintings. I don't fancy those venues at all. Almost without exception people want to argue about the price. They don't realize or care how much time & materials go into a piece - or that the seller is paying for the stall or table.
My preference is to rent a shelf or two in a craft store. The price usually starts at $15.00 a shelf for one month. The store owner is not at liberty to discount & hardly ever is asked to discount. It beats sitting out in the sun or waiting for the rain.
