HOW TO: prepare for a craft fair

by Christy Petterson

Recently preparing for Renegade in Chicago, I realized the enormous number of details involved in getting ready for a craft fair. Not only do you have to have all of your merchandise ready, you also have to gather up a myriad of items to take with you. There is so much to remember and it can be so time consuming that I've tried to organize the process in a way that makes it quick (or quicker!) and easy (or easier!) to grab everything and run out the door. Every minute you spend gathering supplies is a minute you could be using for creating or marketing. And if you make it easy and foul-proof enough you may even be able to delegate this part to a boyfriend, roommate or Mom who has offered to help. This will give you time to make one last thing!

I'm an advocate of the list. Maybe because I can't seem to keep track of anything without them, I usually have several things-to-do lists going at once. The list translates well when I'm trying to keep track of everything I need to take with me to a show. I make copies of the list, keep the blank copies on hand in a notebook and literally check items off as I pack them up. This is especially useful during this time of year when there are many shows back to back. Knowing what to take with you can be tricky at first but you'll get the hang of it. A lot of it is just general supplies, some of it relates to your comfort, and some relates to the elements.

I recommend using a tool box. This can literally be a tool box from the hardware store, a shoebox or anything fun that can hold supplies. Choose whatever works well for you and is small enough to carry easily without adding to the load and large enough to hold everything you need. Buy seconds of everything so that the tool box is always packed and you never have to raid it when you are at home looking for scissors. Things I include in the tool box: calculator, pens, sharpies, tape, safety pins, scissors, and twine. Twine has proven to be a life saver on several occasions. You never know what you'll need it for, but chances are you'll need it!



As you develop your set up and display you'll know what else you need to have on hand. S hooks have recently been added to our tool box because of a new way the I.C.E. Collective is displaying clothes. The tool box contents will evolve over time.

After your tool box is ready, there's the big bulk. If the show's outside you'll want a standard 10 x 10 tent. If you don't have one though, don't let this stop you from participating. Just cross your fingers that it doesn't rain and make sure you wear sunscreen if it is summer. You'll also need tables, chairs, clothing racks (if you make clothes) and anything else you use for display purposes. Sometimes tables and chairs are provided for indoor shows. Find out what you are responsible for.

So now you have your tool box, big bulk and your merchandise. Here are a few more details you might not have thought of. Bring a table clothe and ...
