post #1 of 3

I have been invited to be a vendor at a local craft show (for the first time!!). Looking for advice on what to take as far as samples, full size cakes, cupcakes etc.? Anything that you are willing to share about your experience. Thanks!!

Don't mean to be a stick in the frosting, but we need a bit more information. What kind of craft show? What's kind of clients attend? Are there any legal requirements or restrictions on samples? Will you need a special DHEC day pass? Does the show have any specific requirements?

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

It is called a "Jury Craft Show" - which means that the people/organization in charge receive applications/samples from vendors and if they approve your application you can have a booth.  They only allow 1 of each trade.  So, there will be 1 basket seller, 1 hair bows, 1 pet toy, vendor.  They are also having things like Scensy Candles, Tupperware, etc.  They have approved of a local chocolatier and myself, Sweet D's for baked goods.

 

This is the second year of this specific show.  Last year they had about 500 people for foot traffic.  They have changed to a better location in town and have doubled the available space for vendors and included a Chinese Auction for local charities.  Their only requirement is to be there the whole day and to provide a Chinese auction item for a donation.

Thanks for your time!
