I'm not sure I understand the question about "not selling things you make" but to craft fairs I take
inexpensive items.  Things they can buy for a buck or two.  Things in the 1x8 bags like pencils and candy with cute toppers.
Key chains/book marks. Things made with the treat cups.

I think what she meant is if you are not selling handmade items, but instead
are just trying to get contacts for your SU! business, what do you take with
you to the craft fair?

 

So the items you listed don't qualify as those are handmade items you're
trying to sell.

Catalogs for sure!  Door prize slips (more on that below).  A basket with goodies that represent what someone could get free with a minimum qualifying order.  Samples.  Class schedules.  Postcards with my blog address, FB page and newsletter sign up links.

 

Door prizes – first of all, EVERYONE who enters wins a “free class”.  You don’t tell them that at the event, of course, just call them after and say “YOU WON!”.  I do have a basket of treats that is the bonus prize………….I do my OWN MPP style kits and add some chocolate and other goodies.

Re: SU!: RE: Question of the Week Reminder

Sue Scheets
In reply to this post by Brenda Crawshaw

I take catalogs and this time I had 4 make n takes, so people could get
their hands on some of the products.  One make n take was a Christmas card
with an envelope they made with the punch board.  I actually sold 5 punch
boards, along with a paper cutter, rotary blade and one of the design
blades.  I made contacts with 5 new people and there were only 12 at the
crop.  I had a slight charge for the make n takes to recover my costs, and
a bonus fee if they made all 4.  I scheduled them for every 2 hours of the
crop.

I am going to two more vender events in the next couple of weeks and plan
to try the make n take at them also.  Maybe just have one or two since this
is not an all day crop.

On the other hand, if you had really inexpensive things like Denise mentioned, they might attract people to your booth. Especially if some of them were super-attractive to children.

I would take a simple make and take, business cards, samples from previous
classes as well as upcoming classes, and I would also take some things to
work on while sitting there.  that will attract people to see what you are
doing and how easy it is to do.

Along with what I’ve created & selling, I have catalogues to hand out, a sign-up sheet where people can indicate if they’re interested in classes, newsletter, or hosting; I also have a prize basket with entry slips (to acquire their contact info & interests) with the prize being a free class for 6 along with something hand made – and as has been said before, “everyone wins!”

In reply to this post by Charlotte Lindmeier

Catalogs, a door prize (stamp set & clear block or a Simply Sent kit) and forms, samples from my recent and upcoming classes, new or recent items (punch board, kits, stamp ets etc).
I bought a tiered display stand, which takes up room but enables me to display items to their best advantage.

I always take a clear and a wood mounted stamp set so people can see the difference,  and ink, paper, cardstock, ribbon and a marker to show how everything matches!
I also print out a flyer of my current and upcoming classes on one side, and on the other an explanation of what the classes entail. I put this in a cello bag with a 3 x 3 card and envelope and a business card. If there is a current special I may print out a mini flyer to go in the packet too. And finally in just a few I put a "golden ticket" for a free class!!
Hope that helps.....

SU!: QOTW

Beth Schreiber
In reply to this post by Charlotte Lindmeier

When I do craft fairs/vendor fairs I take samples of product, projects I've made with lists of materials I used, catalogs to sell, business cards, a drawing for a free class for those who fill out an interest form ( similar to a door prize drawing form I use at a workshop or in home party), Order blanks, (I also sometimes take old catalogs with my contact information to give out. I like to have a super easy make and take or some things I'm working on to demonstrate stamping.
I'm sure there's more, but this is all I can think of off the top of my head!

In reply to this post by Charlotte Lindmeier

Our question this week is:
What do you take to a craft fair if you are trying to get new customers not
selling things you make?



My Answer:

I take a display board of customers at prior classes to show we are having
fun.:-)  I always take a class schedule coming up with a display of the
projects. This way they can see what they will be making. I always pass out
business cards and usually a small (3x3) card of any theme. I have an
altered clip board with a newsletter sign up sheet which also asks if they
would like to host a home party

In reply to this post by DeniseDonald

Our question this week is:
What do you take to a craft fair if you are trying to get new customers not
selling things you make?

I always take:

.         Catalogues and some samples I've made using product. I have a
stand for the catalogue and I open it to a particular page and display items
made with product on that page.

.         Newsletter sign-up sheet

.         Business cards

.         Discussion starter - small card, post-it-note holder; rubber jar
gripper (I make this while they watch with the big shot and some rubber
matting) - things that cost very little

.         Class schedule on a book mark with retired ribbon and a small
magnet on the back (I make this in MDS and print on my home printer)

.         Display of cards and other 3D items to entice questions and
interest
