I am going to be a vendor at a craft fair this fall and I am trying to get a game plan together and I was hoping others here would have some experience.

I am selling greeting cards, gift card holders, tags, paper crafts in general. No scrapbook layouts.

So, my question how many different do you suggest I have? What pricing have you seen before? Any advice, I would appreciate. Thanks!

Oh good for you, I have always thought about doing that but I am never organized enough lol. I would say though in talking to others that have done craft fairs that some felt customers are not willing to pay for the labor involved in making crafts for some reason they think the price should only be about the materials. It seems silly to me but I think non crafters really have no clue of the skill level and time it takes to make crafts. I think the key to being successful would be to find a few things that are in trend and choosing a price that is competitive but not way out there. Good luck hope you do well!
