gina 2 Report Share Posted March 12, 2004 Craft Faire I've had a Craft Faire every year in November,and it is always a big success. Starting in Sept./Oct. I start handing out fliers throughout the community announcing the craft faire and its need for booth rentals,we provide a space for the person to sell their craft items,but they have to bring their own tables & (tarps if they want).We usually charge$25.00 per space,they can share a space with their family/friends for the same $25.00.We have usually around 20 spaces that are rented.($25.00x20=$500). We specify that the renters only sale items that are hand crafted- candles,jellies,fruit stand,gift baskets,sewing items,painted projects,quilting,christmas items,etc. Then in October the residents and I start working on our booth items,we usually make book markers(very easy to make)and plan a bake sale.The residents sit at their own booths. We also have a snack stand at the Faire,with a hot dog,chips,and soda combo for $2.00. This project is a great way for your facility to bond with the community and make some good money while having a great time....Gina Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
