Craft shows you can attend in? In either manhattan, junction city or riley. I went to one on sunday in manhattan did'nt go that that well cuz any shade their was was taken and I had no form of shade just was in direct sun light which I just cant handle for long perids of time. I want to try it out again and be more prepared this time.

Liss are you military? You can rent canopies pretty cheap from ODR. 

Liss51 --- 7 years ago -

Yes I am, I was thining of buying a nice shade thing im sure it can be used when we have people over at our house or something. I just have no idea when their is a craft shows

Also Sams/Costco/Whatnot usually have a really nice one for around 100$, great investment if you are planning on selling often. We had one with detachable sides, loved it. Also the hollow tables made for easier manuvering and set up. I miss being a vendor, was tons of fun!

Liss51 --- 7 years ago -

Of course there is always Hilsboro and Marion craft fairs usually held the 3rd weekend in October....nice big craft fairs with people from all over.

Abilene just had a small one this past weekend, you might call the city office or parks and rec to see when they might be planning another.

susanp68 --- 7 years ago -

Hey Liss if you ever decide you want a partner I make birdhouses out of ghourds. I have always wanted to try and sell them but I dont think I have neough guts to venture out there on my own. 

Liss51 --- 7 years ago -

I sell wine bottle night lights, I decorate candle holders and flower vases and glass plates, thats about it for now till things getting a head start. @susanp68 I have'nt been in a craft show since I was a kid I miss it, I attempted to be in one on sunday but with no form of shade my husband and I could'nt bare the sun beaming on us so that was fail lasted a hour lol. with shade we whould of been fine. Im going to try to be at the buttons and bows craft show in november! I never thought of pairing up with someone since im just starting to venture out there...

When you do get to one, if you are a vendor or not, talk to the other vendors and find out how they find places... you might find someone who can tell you how to get the list. I talked to my mom about it, she couldnt remember where we got it either but she said she still has an old list in a box with whats left from when we would sell but its in storage. 

Liss51 --- 7 years ago -

Yea I'll prolly ask them 

CoCoPuffs --- 7 years ago -

I know in Salina in June they have people with craft booths at the Smokeyhill river festival..( i think that is what it is called) 

BlackthornCandleCo --- 7 years ago -

I know where tons of them are, since we are at about 2-3 of them per month. Shoot me a call at 785-784-5321 or e-mail me at heather@blackthorncandles.com for more info.
