Hey Portland crafty folks, DIY Lounge is offering a pretty kick-ass class this September all about the ins-and-outs of craft fairs. Here is the description from the DIY Lounge website:
Whether you are just starting out or are an experienced seller, this class will help you navigate the world of applying to and selling at craft fairs and give helpful insight from two ladies who have been selling at fairs for years and now organize and run a successful fair. Subjects that will be covered include:
• The application process—presenting yourself and your work well
• The dos and don’ts of booth layout
• Pricing your work
• Selling at larger national fairs
• Selling tips – credit card processing & how to maximize sales
• And oh-so-much-more!
Students will receive a printed handout chock full of resources, tips and secrets!
The class is being taught by Cathy Pitters & Torie Nguyen, the lovely duo behind Portland’s uber-successful (and equally uber-hip) Crafty Wonderland. The tuition for the course is a mere $35—a steal of a deal, if you ask me.
I’ve already registered for the class, and I have a feeling the spots will go fast, so if you’re interested, I’d hop on the role sheet pretty quickly if I were you.
