Sorry to hear it didn't go well. I'm participating in my first craft fair the end of November. Every area is different. It is an experience and I am dying to see how it goes. The craft sale here is in the same place as a monthly flea market. I expect the flea market crowd to come and won't buy anything that is not CHEAP. I'm taking all my homemade Christmas gifts (if they sell, I'll just make more) for variety and they will also be the higher priced items on my table. Everything else will be lots of cards and other items that are not so expensive. The table is $10 so I figure that the experience is worth that if nothing sells. If it goes well, I'll do more for next time.
