I've pretty much cut my shows back to 3-4 per year. It's so disappointing to go and set up and only a handful of shoppers attend. I feel as if I haved wasted my entire day. My best profit comes from a Christmas craft fair. Last year I made over $600! (Booth fee already deducted.) I treat my crafting as a business. I keep up with how much I spend, gas mileage, and profits. I also have an etsy shop where I sell tile coasters and printed note cards. I tried selling handmade note cards a while back and they just didn't do very well. I sell handmade cards at my craft shows. So my etsy is to help boost my profits. But my first love is making handmade cards! We have a card ministry at church and I love making handmade cards for that!
