Craft Show Sellers

This post is looking into what sells for me at craft shows.  I am gearing up for my summer one.  I only do 2 per year.  If you are one who does these shows, I want to hear from you!  Please tell us what sells best for you, any tips and tricks you have for displays and even making set up/transport easier.

First things first...
My best sellers are signs and chalkboards.  Almost every time I sell out of chalk boards and most of my signs go pretty quickly as well.  

I do sell a few coat racks- anything with hooks.

I usually bring some smaller furniture like end tables, chairs and foot stools.  They sell but not as well as the easy carry items.  

Now I want to hear from you:

Crafters- what sells for you?

Buyers- what would you just love to see at a show?

  1. I see, easy carry is the ticket. I will have to keep that in mind! Thanks for the tips! Hope you well very well this summer.... :)

  2. I love to see chalkboards, frames, signs, antiques, cloche's, ironstone ect...

    I love your items you posted :-)


  3. Interesting. I've found that people like projects that are already completed, rather than something they will have to finish at home (like patterns, etc.). Being crafty myself, I'm always looking for a cute pattern, or some precut wood, so I can add my own flare to it. I'm glad I found your post through the Moonlight and Mason Jars link party.

  4. great post! chalkboards use to sell really well for me, but not so much at my last show. I think people are making their own these days. Since I mostly do one of a kind repurposed items, I can't really be much help. I usually do okay with the heavier items.

  5. This is wonderful to know! Fascinating replies too! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
