Some things I learned:
- Shows aren't only for selling, but also for networking. You don't know how successful a craft show is, because someone who picked up your business card might order something six months later!
- I loved getting to know other artists and share our ideas, businesses, art, and other awesome opportunities we know about!
- I got so many cool ideas about how to set up my booth so that it stands out (and already have the hubs building away for me) :-)
- I learned where I want my booth cost maximum to be, and what type of venues my items do well at.
