I see a lot of "runners" who go up the middle isle and do not come near the entrance of my booth let alone in it. I here a lot of, That's so cute! Wow, I can make that. Wow you are so creative.... although these comments sound great, they are not sealing the deal and making the sale. Is it the economy that has everyone not opening up there pocketbooks? I see many other booths with way more expensive items in them and these people are flocking to them. Maybe it's just Jersey? Who knows. If anyone has any tips, please let me know. I'm very frustrated. I put a lot of time and effort into my crafts. Are fall shows better than spring and summer? Has anyone tried street fairs? I'm ready to dump my stuff in the trash. Please help.
Put a nicely printed sign on your table that says...Thanks for your compliments...I know you can probably make one, but will you?
