As the weather warms up and the dogwoods flower, vendor tents begin to pop up at markets and festivals in Knoxville and throughout the Southeast.
Kate Thurman and Alaina Smith have lots of experience selling from booths at craft fairs and markets. Alaina, who runs Cold Gold, has participated in 20+ craft fairs, and Kate of Smarty Pants Paper Co. has exhibited at craft fairs and trade shows and has created counter and floor displays for a product-based business. Both women have won awards for their craft fair booths. (Yeah, they're awesome.)
And they’ve shared some of their top tips for a successful day of selling at craft fairs.
STOP procrastinating and START selling at craft fairs.
