Sell Your Handmade Jewelry at Craft Fairs

This past weekend I visited the Fort Lauderdale Indie Craft Bazaar with my good friend and FL warehouse comrade, Pea. This was an awesome three room craft shows filled with vendors and all of their incredible handmade goods.

From jewelry to baked goods, paintings to body products, this show really had it all. I left the show with a heap of goodies, but what’s more, a ton of inspiration for selling¬† handmade goods and working shows from the designer point of view

Working craft shows - fantastic table booth setup

Return to The Roots table setup at the #IndieCraftBazaar

The above table setup was absolutely incredible and was rocking with feel good energy (and customers) every time we walked by. Return to the Roots makes incredible handmade oils, bath salts and feel-good health products. This maker had a very inviting setup, and better yet, the warmest, more welcoming vibe. She fully believes in her brand and puts her heart and soul into each of her products.  She was so knowledgeable about every product on her table, an absolutely fantastic vendor! And her bath goodies? Amaze. I picked up two bath salts, a drinking elixir and her facial oil, all incredible. Check out Return from the Roots on Etsy, and on Instagram

Browsing the show we were so excited to find a few vendors with Jesse James Beads in their designs! Our favorite? Artia Designs. These are cigar box purses made with real animal hides and terrific beaded handles. Love what these very ethnic-looking Jesse James Beads do for the purse design, they add a very eclectic and wild finishing touch. Thank you for the support, Artia Designs! Love your work. Want to see our favorite handbag? It’s the Fancy Brocade Bag, see it here

Pea’s goodies from the Indie Craft Bazaar

Pea and I definitely splurged at the fair, and with good reason! Everywhere we turned there was another vendor with incredible goods. This pile up top contains Pea’s takeaways from the Indie Craft Bazaar. Hey, if you’re going to spend some money, spend it on something handmade. Keep the business of makers and small business alive! Let’s support each other and return our hard earned dollars to the people crafting your purchase with personal love and care.

Off to the Indie Craft Bazaar! Wearing my Saturday best

This past weekend was my 29th birthday, and what an incredible celebration it was. I was blessed to hang out with friends, swim in the Florida ocean, sip a little champagne, and visit the #IndieCraftBazaar. This bazaar filled me with inspiration. It’s been a long while since I’ve been on the browsing/buying end of the table at a show, and even longer since I attended a maker fair. Seeing a craft show and all the bustle of creativity and passion was so very provoking! This is what you, our beautiful customers, do! You make. You are impassioned. And many of you sell your goods at fairs to turn a profit. I am overjoyed to be part of your process. If you are a maker and sell at shows, or if you are looking to begin, please contact us. We have great tips for selling at show! From display table setup to setting your prices, and of course, there’s awesome discounts for quantity purchases.
