Original Post

I was hoping to get more info on the Holiday Expo. Is this the first year? What is attendance like? How many crafters typically show?

Thanks!

Eva,

I've responded to your message, but in case people were wondering-- the first Roundhouse show had approximately 40 craft vendors and the second around 44. Attendance was pretty steady and most mentioned seeing the blue signs we had out.

The application can be found here:

Just as an FYI about the holiday expo, I spoke to the floor manager at Hancock Fabrics off University when I was there a week or so ago and she said they would be happy to post our flyer when the show gets closer. I'm planning to take one by there when we get ready to start advertising but if anyone else frequents other fabric stores/craft stores/etc. they might want to ask if we can post flyers there too. I'm not sure if anyone did that for the spring show but I thought it was a great avenue for advertising that might bring us more customers!

That's a great idea! As much money as I spend in Jo Ann's, they ought to put up a flyer for us!

Actually I asked Michaels if they would post one of our flyers for the spring show and they flat out refused. I was pretty shocked, as much money as I spend there and Hobby Lobby and JoAnns. So I didn't even bother asking at the other places. But good luck Ari. Maybe JoAnns will do it.

Jessica or Ari, by any chance is there WiFi at the Roundhouse?

I'm new to the craft booth scene. Any tips for my first booth set-up at the Roundhouse?

Kathi - I believe there is WiFi at the Roundhouse.

Terri - Oh! There is tons of info about craft booths! We used to have a really good post about it on our blog until I accidentally deleted when I was redoing the website :(. I'll dig around and find you some links. Are you on Pinterest? There's some pins about booths on our board.
