How to Organize a Craft Show

Jun 29, 2010

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Every year the summer season blooms with craft fairs and markets showcasing the handmade work of independent designers across the country and the world. In this week’s edition of How-Tuesday, Julie Meyer from HandmadeMN, a team of Etsy sellers based in Minnesota, shares a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the organization and process of their first craft show, the HandmadeMN Spring Market. Read on for tips and inspiration for how your team might go about organizing a successful show!

The HandmadeMN Team members are no strangers to the craft and art show circuit in and around the Twin Cities. With local shows filling up with more and more team members it was only natural that the idea of hosting a team show came up. If your team is ready for a show, here are a few tips to get you motivated.


1. Who, What, Where, and When?

  • Gather a small steering team to meet in person and online several months prior to your show. Members from our team met this past January to begin the process of organizing an exclusive Etsy team show held in May.
  • Select the venue and map the space to determine the maximum number of vendors.
  • Draft the show application. We chose to jury the show, but you can fill a show on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Don’t forget to collect all the required tax forms needed for your city and/or state from each vendor.

2. Recruit Help
When the venue was booked and applications were coming in, the next thing we easily agreed on was that we needed a lot of help from the team to make the show a success!

  • Set up committees to manage different aspects of the show and ask your vendors and team members to volunteer their time when they can. Keep track of each committee’s progress online so the team can see what needs to be done.
  • We created committees for graphics, advertising, and show hosting.

The advertising committee got the word out by putting together a press release for local newspapers, set up a Facebook event page, and negotiated print and online ads with local magazines. The show host committee got to work on the last-minute tasks that needed to be done as the show drew nearer. This committee canvassed the show’s neighborhood with flyers the week before the event, worked with the venue to make sure tables were set, and helped vendors during set-up. They were also in charge of setting up the team Information tables and greeting customers once the show started.

3. Creative Budgets
You’ll need someone to loan the down payment for the venue and handle all of the finances, including vendor payments coming in and print and advertising costs. Hit the streets and ask your local supply shops, garden shops, fabric stores, etc., to purchase advertising spots in your show program. These paid advertising spots helped to offset the printing costs, plus our advertisers spread the word about our show to their customer base!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Shout It Out!
Ask your team members to network with everyone they know. Blogging, tweeting, and Facebooking are an easy way for vendors and team members to help promote the show. Encourage team members to collaborate with their connections to creatively get the word out.

5. Follow Up
Putting on a show is hard work, so you’ll want to find out where your efforts paid off. Offer a giveaway for your customers. Use the drawing slip to gather information from your customers about how they discovered the show and let them opt-in to receive emails about future team events. Ask your vendors for their feedback post-show so you’ll know what went right and what you might do differently next time.

Last weekend I participated in my first ever art/craft show organized by one of the team members & had a wonderful time. Learned a great deal about what works & what I need to improve about my displays. & yesterday I learned I got accepted to three outdoor shows this summer & am really looking forward to them! & I'd love to see more storque articles about prepping for a show :-)

    aloha etsy and mahalos as usual for all the amazing tips for pretty much anything crafty! If I could, I would like to throw my two pennies in here. I organized a very small mind you but successful arts and crafts show and did it in the luxury of my own front yard. We are indie artists around here and to pay someone for a venue just seemed ludicrous, so my husband and I did some yard work,cleaned the bbq, and did it "indie-style"! We ended up with 12 vendors,dogs,kids a ton a PBR and bbq consumed and every single vendor either sold goods or got leads on new buyers. The first annual, "You Ain't Artsier Than Me" artisan craft sale was born in Reno,NV and I hope for many more! Be crafty, it always pays out in the end...

    great inspiring piece! i had a small gathering of artists in my house (which was still being rehabbed= no ceilings!)last year around the Holidays- we posted to all our friends on Facebook and sent out a nice art email reminder- it was a huge success, and all of our friends ended up bringing food and wine! Not only did the artists make money, we had a reunion of sorts, and actually made new friends- it was very cozy and comfortable and everyone begged me to do it again- I just wish my house was bigger!

    Organizing your own show is very rewarding and the tips in this article are fantastic! I organized Mayday Underground in Rochester, NY with a lot of support from my local team, RNEST. It can be difficult to convince sponsors to pay for an advertising block on a flier of a brand new show without a customer base. To get around that, I offered "co-op" advertising with my sponsors. Instead of charging them for an advertising space, I let them have it free, and in exchange, asked them to advertise the show. I found a woman who ran her own handmade craft botique and she happened to have a mailing list of over 2000 people that she was willing to advertise the show to. We also put out a lot of plastic signs with "indie craft show" and the address on them a few days before the event with fluorescent arrows pointing in the direction of the venue. The outside of the building was also clearly marked (banner and sandwich board) so that shoppers knew where to go.

    Hope you can help - what I need isn't the setting up of a craft fair per se but of setting up my "space" as a vendor at something like Knitters Day Out. Where to get racks? how do I go about taking credit cards? How much stock should I take with me? Ideas? anyone?

  • LavenderMemoryLane

    LavenderMemoryLane said 7 years ago

    I wish i could find the other people to share the booth. I was looking forward to meet with local crafters through Etsy meet up last month. Unfortunately despite of 14 replies, it never took a place...:-( I'm a bit uncomfortable to do this by myself.... it would've been nice if i can find the local crafters to do OUR booth in craft shows so that people can see my products in person, and maybe that would help my business...but i'll keep this article in mind, for the future. Thanks for the article!

  • BabbidgePatch

    BabbidgePatch said 7 years ago

    I'm a 'vintage' craftfair vendor ~ my first venue for selling my knitware over 20 years ago. Craftfair success can be dependent on good weather (not too hot, not too cold & rainy but just 'right' for navigating booths) & also, the local economy. I am so thrilled and proud to be part of the Etsy community with it's global reach. I do one fair a year, but find it doesn't beat the ease of selling from my studio through Etsy.

  • PrairiePrimitivesToo

    PrairiePrimitivesToo said 7 years ago

    Hi! I'm the founder/manager of the Sac Etsy Street Team and as we were approaching 100 members (we're now past that!) we started discussing having a show of our own. A few of the team members expressed interest in helping with the event, but none had time to make a serious commitment. We tried a front yard sale earlier this year but sales were dismal for most of our artists and non-existent for others. I suggested a "home boutique" (indoor, or at least in-garage) closer to the holidays, but there doesn't seem to be any interest in that type of event. I've done craft fairs for 30+ years so I feel like I have a pretty good idea of what's needed for a successful craft fair; just wish more members of the team could get as excited about the idea as I am! :-) PrairiePrimitives.etsy.com PrairiePrimitivesToo.etsy.com

    HandMadeMN ROCKS! I so wish I had been there for the show. My new team Sac Etsy has discussed putting on our own show but even getting people to show up for a meeting seems to be too much to ask. Thank goodness there are enough local venues to keep me happy. I have a regular weekly spot at the MidTown Bazaar each Saturday morning and on 2nd Saturdays I have regular spot for an evening show at Park Your Art. Um, yeah...just a little tired... So good to hear about HandMadeMN rocking the area show scene - miss you all!!!

    When you do a show, always have plenty of business cards available. I've had people contact me after a show, but just didn't have enough time to shop, just came for the curiosity. Also, if possible, have a brochure of all the vendors at the show with their contact info. to go along with the mailing list they just signed up for. Most people would be glad to christmas shop later or tell someone else about the event. I am glad to hear what a successful show it was. Great article!!

    This is the part I'm not sure how to do: "The advertising committee got the word out by putting together a press release for local newspapers" and "negotiated print and online ads with local magazines." Can anyone help guide me with some examples of how to do this?
