Don and I have been busy making items to take to our craft shows and festival this week. We set up for the Crafts Unlimited Craft Show in Upland, CA yesterday. It's a great group of crafters that set up 4 times a year. Customers make purchases through a central checkout so you don't have to stay with your products. You work 8 hours over the 4-5 days helping at the show. I always have a lot of fun while I'm there. Upside, exposure for your products. Downside, there is a 20% commission taken from your total sales. There are several promoters that do these types of shows. We participate with several different promoters. Keeps us busy and more important, items sell!
Friday we will set up at the 1st Annual Orange Grove Festival at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, CA. Three days of family fun, food, entertainment and shopping (hope there is a lot of shopping). Long days but it should be fun.
