Merry Christmas, Sparkle Squad! I participated in a Christmas craft fair 2ce this December. These first experiences in outdoor craft fairs were both challenging and fun. I will eventually write regarding my research and valuable craft fair tips that helped me feel slightly less stressed.
Although I primarily focus on making handmade jewelry, I dabble in holiday crafts and decor, via my YouTube channel. Since I had TONS of holiday scrap-stash, I thought it would be a nice tent filler to incorporate some yummy stocking stuffers with all the sparkles.
Holiday Craft Fair Items and Stocking Stuffer Video Tutorials
I chose the following holiday projects for my very first experience with outdoor craft fairs:
- Handmade Christmas Greeting Cards
- Hershey Nugget Packs
- Holiday Earrings
- Hot Cocoa and Apple Cider Pouches with candy canes and honey sticks
- M&M Bags with custom to/from tags for peanut and caramel varieties
The most successful projects during the first fair were the cards, holiday earrings, and drink pouches. I was surprised that the Hershey chocolate packs didn’t fly off the table as mentioned by fellow crafters’ videos regarding their own success stories. Next time, I added the M&M bags at a lower price point. There was still only a mild interest. So either the prices for the candy was too high for my area or there were other vendors selling better-looking edible stocking stuffers. More tests will be necessary.
Please watch my videos & give a thumb’s up at my channel if you enjoy them.
Happy New Year, everyone!
