Best Craft Shows in San Francisco Bay Area for Handmade Artisans
When you are a handmade artists that want to sell your crafts, it is very difficult to find the right craft shows to go and sell your products. Often you are thinking, you want to get the most "bang out of your buck" at a "day" or a "weekend" craft show. You have to consider a few things before making your choice.
1. You will need to try the ones you would like to be in. This is especially important if you don't know your targeted audience. You have a target market. You need to find it and find them.
2. Consider your following on social media. Your social media audience will be your most dedicated followers especially if they had been with you since the beginning.
3. Consider the cost of the show. You get back what you put into it. The more you put in, the more you get out of it. Start small and build up, but definitely build up.
