You share so much with us and that gives us a head start on what we can make, where we can get the supplies and the biggie--prices! I can't thank you enough for all of your sharing. Would you share one more piece of information? Where do you purchase the cellophane bags you use when you prepare your items to sell? They are a big part of your presentation and they always fit so well. Thank you.

This is just superb, I've been looking for "fairs and festivals ny" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across - Tanacob Qonaniel Booster - (search on google ) ?

It is an awesome one off guide for finding fairs and festivals without the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my mate got excellent success with it.

Iโ€™m so glad you did great. I want to make a few of your craft fair hits. Donโ€™t worry about me making a bunch and selling them! I have ADD and if I get 2 or 3 made of the same thing, Iโ€™m lucky! No joking! I canโ€™t do it. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
Do you mind if I make some book marks and a couple things you showed? I will only do it with your permission only.
Please let me know?

You have such a great family that crafts together and has a ton of fun at these fairs, not to mention making before hand. You inspired me last year at my first-ever craft fairs back in TX. I just moved to KY this year and haven't been able to finish unpacking, much less think about craft fairs, but I think it would be tons of fun now that I'm closer to my TN family that might want to come and take part. Loved all your items! You all are very talented! Sparkle on!

Maybe call them "Private Place" books. The word common has an air of meaning not important, in my opinion. Your books are beautifully constructed, colorful, and interesting and they should have disappeared off the tables, sorry they didn't. You do inspire me.

Sherry White
Sherry White 2 months ago

Very nice products. I was wondering about your common place books. You mentioned that most of the products that were selling were a christmas theme. So can you take the commonplace books and make some that are for entering your favorite memories from Christmas. They could put in favorite Christmas date and place, favorite gift, xmas games they played, names of relatives who they got to spend time with and finally new members of their families. Really anything that left an awesome memory for them. Just a suggestion!

AY Evans

The commonplace books/journals didn't sell well because people don't write anymore, at least not among the younger set. Holiday themed ones may sell better. As a merchandiser, I know that stationery doesn't sell well anymore. People are either texting, Instagramming, or Facebooking.

Do not use the word common-place! It comes off as "I'm selling you cheap crap that was an afterthought for $7". The journals are boring and look like not a lot of thought went I to them. Many people attend craft fairs and determine if they can make it themselves for less. Making a journal that looks like toy slapped apistcard on it for a cover doesn't show much Imagination. Make them with more texture and difficulty so people don't believe they can make it. Much of what is sold as "favors" at a craft fair sell because they are taken home and back engineered. Your stuff is beautiful but too simple. Sell art forms, not "tutorials to be stolen". The last but of marketing advice is the selling of small items because people really don't have a lot of money. They just want a momento. Use right words and titles. Example: Candy jar= jars of sweet love.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on what is a bestseller or not. It's so hard when you sign up to do craft fairs to know what is going to sell or not! I have done many craft fairs and have had some of the heartbreaks as you did. You put so much time and love into your projects, and hope that others will realize that. Thanks again for sharing! Also, your mothers binders are absolutely beautiful!!! Happy Holidays to you!

The non Christmas themed items could have a Christmas gift decoration like a ribbon and tag or a band of holiday card stock this would help I am sure...they can then be used all year are fair in your pricing...I am new subbie and I enjoyed your channel, hugsโ˜ƒ๏ธ๐Ÿ’•โ„๏ธ

At the craft fairs in Wyoming, FOOD always sells. Iย think ย your tea and honey favors and the cocoa pouches would sell anywhere. One note: People are cutting back on sugar. Most people want to buy SOMETHING but don't want to spend a fortune.

You did great!

I decided to try my hand at a craft fair this year. First off in CA, if we sell any food, even Swiss Miss Packs or Hershey Nuggets you need a one tine permit for &75. Or a multiple show permit that is $350 and a professional kitchen!! Even just for pre-wrapped foods.
If I try next year, it will be hand made items, but no food, even though I privately sold over 50 Hershey Nuggets packs.

I hope rules and regulations in other states aren't as harsh as CA. Very discouraging

So nice of you to share your tutorials and how well each piece sold. It takes a lot of time & effort to make everything for a craft fair (why I donโ€™t do them!) and itโ€™s heartbreaking when people who attend craft fairs do t understand that handmade is worth the price.
Have a wonderful holiday season!

It's interesting that the items that did not sell well for you were mainly journals. I had also thought that the journals I carry would sell really well at the craft fairs this year. But, to my surprise, they hardly sold at all. So maybe it's just one of those years -- or maybe people are a little journal'ed out with so many of them out there. But like you I enjoy making the journals, so I'll probably continue and hope the market changes soon.

I do think people love something that is a good gift for the teachers and other people in your life that you need to give something to.....but a good price and beautiful packaging for something people NEED, is a WIN WIN WIN. The Golden Books are just so unique.

I have to stop by to thank you. I just got home from the only craft fair I'm doing this year, and I wanted to let you know that I made your lip balm favors and tea and honey favors. The tea sold out, and I think I have two lip balms left, and I had dozens of each! I kind of added them at the last minute, because I wanted to add to what I usually sell, and have some lower priced items that people could grab for stocking stuffers and teacher gifts, etc. They moved kind of slowly at first, but after one woman bought 12 of the tea favors, things really picked up, and they all just thought that both of them were the cutest things ever!!! So thank you ever so much for sharing. And may all of your generosity come back to you tenfold!

Thank you for sharing. I live in the Caribbean and I took some of your ideas for a small craft fair I was doing. People loved the hot chocolate packs (I put marshmellows and a candy cane with it) but the best of all were the lollipop favors. I actually made them to give as a freebie with each purchase and people put in orders for large amounts! So now I have a bunch of work when I thought I was done! Good work though. Thanks again!

Your little golden book journals were my favorite thing! My friend and I will be making them soon, for a craft fair for next year. I was curious about your candy jars? I, also, have several of them finished. And hot cocoa and tea favors, as well. Your display was absolutely perfect! Just a suggestion...You should consider doing a spring craft fair to sell your non-Holiday items. Thanks for sharing all of your results! Hugs ๐Ÿ’• Suzy
