Are you thinking of doing some craft fairs this summer?   Craft fairs are not only a great place to sell your items, but it’s also a great place to network, get new customers and make friends. 

I try to sign up for a minimum of 2 craft shows a year. There are an abundance of craft shows during the holiday months of October – December, and that’s my favorite time to do shows.  Since I’m on a budget, I have to be selective and pick ones that are not too expensive, but are advertised well and get a lot of foot traffic.   I’m a big fan of the schools and recreation centers because they have lower vendor fees.  I have done both outdoor and indoor fairs, but my preference is indoor because I don’t like those port-a-potties!   But then outdoor shows attract tons of people. 

Here is a list of some craft fairs in the Denver, Colorado area that I have done in the past or plan to do in the future.   Also check out the link at the bottom of this blog to find a listing of fairs in your state.
