I have less than a week before the December craft sale in Bentley, and for some strange reason, I am feeling zen. I am not freaking out where my poor boyfriend has to talk me down. (And now, I am probably jinxing myself for this) I should be because I had less than a month to replaced all of the things that I sold. Cards are no problem, once I figure out the sketch and such, they take no time. But when it comes to hats, scarves, cowls and slippers, that takes a lot of time. But honestly, all I feel is tired and a little bored.
I have been reading these checklists on craft sales and I thought, what the heck, I show you mine. It is different from other people. But my advise, do of what you think is best.
- Your products – trust me, this is the second year in a row where I forgotten something. Last year was the albums and last November, was the scrubbies.
- Float – That can be store in a cookie tin, you do not need a fancy cash register. But I do recommended of bring a lot of small bills. People can buy a $3 card and pay it with a $20 bill and boom, there goes your float.
- Calculator – except nowadays, it is on everyone’s cell phone, so you are cover.
- Pen and Paper – to keep track of what you sold so you know of what to replace. And write down upcoming orders.
- Business cards – They don’t cost much and heck, you can even do them on your own computer.
- Snacks – in some places, they may not have a concession stand or you are unable to get to it
- Plastic bags – One for your own personal garbage. And others to put your product in. I know some craft vendors have custom made plastic bags with their logos on it. I sadly do not. Mainly because I still come up with a logo which it is still driving me nuts.
- Display items – Like tablecloths, shelves, boxes, signs. I recommended to do a mock display at your house so you know of what to do and what goes where.
- Sweater/ Jacket – in case you get cold
- Tylenol or Aspirin – sitting in a hard chair for 6 hours will hurt you
That is all I can think of. I know I am missing something.
I hope everyone is doing well.
