Trenton Avenue Arts Fest is tomorrow!


Aside from my table sign (my fun Friday night project!) I am all ready for the festival tomorrow. I used this helpful checklist from trentonaveartsfest.blogspot.com:

-business cards
-credit card accepting things if applicable
-lots of extra change (1$s and coinage)
-Notebook to Sign Up for Mailing List
-photo album of work sold
-prices for everything
-wear my items
-tempting basket of free candy
-other crafter's freebies/promo packs
-bags for people who make purchases (paper, staples?)
-Bring something to work on while you sit behind the booth. Doing your craft on the spot draws in customers.
-Have different levels on your display.
-Bring a CALCULATOR for sale totals
-small plastic bag for trash
-signage
-folding chairs
-bring extra lighting
-CLIP ON BACKS and needlenose pliers for jewelry, just in case of requests or repairs
-receipt slips or papers
-tape, paper, pens, scissors
-tablecloth
-mirror for jewelry or clothing
-Sign up sheet for mailing list or custom orders
-Writing pens for customers to write checks
-Notebook to note who bought what, payment type & price
-paper towels/baby wipe/purell

I also read that it is a good idea to set up your table ahead of time to make sure you a) have everything you need and b) have a smooth setup on the day of the event. Here are some of my practice shots:





I can't wait to meet some of my fellow handmade philly artists and crafters! See you at the festival!
