Finding New Craft Markets
Saturday, June 3, 2:15pm – 3:30pm @ Elmira Building
Selling at craft fairs is a big investment of time, money, and resources – it’s also one of the most powerful venues a crafter has for getting products in front of people. Showcasing your business at craft shows can be a building block in creating a successful business. There’s a lot of planning and hard work involved BUT it’s all worth it!
