Liz’s tips for vending at craft fairs

This weekend marked another year at the Inman Park Festival, and despite a soggy Saturday and mostly rained-out parade, we still had a great time. One thing about festivals is that we always get questions from people who make things themselves and are considering taking the plunge into selling. It’s not the easiest thing in the world to do, but I would never discourage anyone from giving it a go, as it can also be quite satisfying. That said, there have been quite a few things we’ve learned over the years and Liz did an absolutely fabulous write-up of some of the more important of those over on her blog. I don’t think I could say it any better than she did, so I’m just going to link to her list.
