Craft Show Check List
So yesterday and today I have been mostly running though my checklist - I based a lot of mine on this one I found online - and running to the store for a few last minute things I thought of - like printing a nice 8x10 sign for the booth in the style of my business card, getting extra price tags and plastic baggies, etc.
I also made other little signs to place around the booth, an artist bio, my process, and up-coming workshops for this fall.
Trying to figure out everything you need to take for this sort of thing can be rather daunting if you've never done it before. I gathered a lot of ideas from various blogs and sites, and compiled a checklist of my own. Here it is:
- I read somewhere that work should all be a similar style or aesthetic, you want the viewers/customers to get an sense of your style but without overwhelming them with all the different styles you yourself might have. So I opted to go with my more "flat" lines, ones that don't have much forming involved. (At a different, more art oriented show, I would probably include a lot of formed pieces, but I don't think this is the crowd for that - for the most part.)
