NEED ADVICE - Best sellers for Holiday Bazaars
Posted 14 October 2012 - 01:32 PM
I am trying to find a few small holiday bazaars to go to this year; my focus is mainly pet hair and raku pottery. RIght now, I don't have a lot of items that are "holiday themed"....but I wanted to know from those of you that attend these things often, what seem to be your most popular sellers? are they ornaments? Mugs?
If you do Raku...what would you suggest taking?
Sinec the economy is down, I was going to try to take and make a lot of items under the $35 range, and have a lot of items in the $20 range - but can anyone give me ideas what seem to move the best?
thank you for any input / advice you might have - this was SPUR OF THE MOMENT and I don't have much time to get much done in addition to my current inventory - but a good chance to make some extra money if I can figure something out

the price range you mention is good, even $10 to $40...but make sure you have a few big ones to catch their attention, never know, sometimes it only takes one of two people to have a worthwhile show

Be aware that there are inescapable good practice points in creating a working yarn bowl.

I do no holiday or themed work, I was the only booth there, among 72 set up, that did not carry "Ho Ho" stuff. I was the top seller by a lot. Adding, there are things I make that do better in summer others better in Fall, and I do consider glaze colors and seasonal color themes, but not pieces design.
Do what you do , do it well, and have a lot of stock in the low to med $ range.( that will vary for different areas.)
