Participate in, or Consider Putting Together an Arts and Crafts Fair For Your Rubber Stamp Crafts

If you want to get the word out about your rubber stamp crafts, one of the easiest ways to ensure a steady stream of customers is by organizing an arts and crafts fair at a community meeting point. If you are a member of a local church or community organization, check to see if any arts and crafts shows are held on a regular basis. These types of shows are especially common during the holiday season, when people become particularly interested in handcrafted objects and crafts.

If you’re local school, church, or community center doesn’t have hold any type of arts and crafts fair, offer to organize one. Be prepared, however, to commit and follow through with the amount of work this type of project entails. You’ll need to recruit other craftspeople to display their work, and make sure the venue is available for the date you need it. Perhaps you’ll also want to secure food or snack vendors.

One of the greatest benefits of holding your craft only sale at a community meeting point like a church or school is that the foot traffic is generally greater than it would be at a garage sale. Another nice benefit is that your event is easier to advertise. If, for instance, your craft-only sale is being held at a local church, you can ask that the sale is mentioned in the weekly announcements and published in the weekly newsletter. Holding your craft-only sale at a local school event also allows you to reach a much larger segment of the community.
