Guest Post by Sara Dugan! A Very Moogly Christmas – 20 Christmas Holiday Craft Fair Patterns to MakeI am super excited today to bring you a guest post from Sara Duggan of Crochet Business! Sara’s site is a tremendous resource for anyone who wants to make money with their crochet. Whether you’re a blogger, an etsy seller, even if you just make a few things for the annual community craft fair, you’ll want to follow her on Facebook and check out her site. In this post, she’s put together a fantastic inventory list and guide for anyone who wants to sell their crochet at Christmas Craft Fairs and Holiday Craft Shows!

The holidays will be here before you know it. JULY is the perfect time to start making inventory for your Christmas craft fair.

What should you make?

You should make a variety of items in a number of different styles and colors. People are happy to shop but at holiday fairs you want to keep the prices under $25.

You also want items to be small and pretty main stream. This is not the time to explore your freeform Olek inspired winter accessory line.

Stick with the basic gifting groups like babies, children, friends, family, and holiday decorations.

Before You Get to Hookin’

Selling at craft shows can be a little tricky but with some planning (like right now) you may have a profitable show.

  • What sold best?
  • What was the average price range?
  • What is the mean demographic?
  • How many attendees?

Trust me; you need this information to know what to spend your time making. It is also helpful to know which shows cater to an audience ready to buy.

  • How many times have you attended?
  • Did you make a purchase?
  • What type of items did you buy?
  • What was the average total purchase?

With this information you can now plan your inventory. Remember to over compensate. This means you are going to be working those little fingers to the bone. Bring 3 times as much as you think you will need making sure to have items from the following categories:

One More Thing Before You Go

You still need to plan your booth, take photographs, make hang tags, print business cards and QR codes, prep packaging and triple check that everything is ready to go on show day.
