A few months ago, I spied a flyer at my local YMCA. A craft show was coming up, and the organizers were calling for crafters and vendors to sell their wares. My interest was piqued.
I had recently relaunched my Etsy shop and was looking to expand my business. That sounds almost ridiculously formal and preplanned. Basically, I saw the flyer, remembered that I had always wanted to try a craft fair, and sent an email asking for more information.
Fast forward a few months. My place is reserved. I’ve purchased the necessary vendor-like tablecloth (with full skirt, thank you) and gift bags. I’ve gathered my point of sale gadget, my cash box, and my display forms. I’ve stocked over 40 items worth of inventory. I am ready.
Actually, I’m terrified. I’m excited, and terrified. What if I don’t sell anything? Or worse, what if I do??
I have several more weeks to ponder these worrisome thoughts. In the meantime, I’ll just continue to tell my six mind to chill. It’s going to be fun…right?
