Well, it is that time of year again. Next Saturday is the first Craft Fair that I am attending this year. It is at the local YWCA in the Fairmont, WV area. My Mom and I will both have tables at this event. So the prepping for the show has begun.
Last week I ordered some prints from a new print service that I have never used before. It was a small order 26 images with a copy in a 4×6, 5×7, 8×10, and 11×14 just to see how they turn out. I will say I am impressed especially by the low cost to buy them. I ordered them this past Wednesday night and I the order was on my doorstep on Saturday. They charge a flat rate shipping no matter what the order is of $8.95.
Thursday night I found myself on Amazon. One of the worse places for me to shop as I want to buy everything. LOL. This year I am not only selling the 8×10 and 11×14 prints but I am trying out the 4×6 and 5×7 prints matted as well. So before I have always stuck with white mats. This time I bought a multicolored set. Which when putting the images in them makes them pop a little bit more. The bigger ones I will stick with white. Those also got delivered on Saturday.
Then Thursday night I ended up buy a Square Bluetooth Card reader. I haven’t had that many people ask me if I take cards before but who knows how many people didn’t buy anything without asking. So now I can take Cards with or without the Chips, along with Apple Pay and Android Pay. This should open me up to more purchases. As we live in a world where people do not carry cash, and at shows, people tend to run out of their cash faster so if they still want to make a purchase they still can with me.
Seems like with every show my list of stuff to brings keeps growing, as right now it is a learning phase for me. I am trying to find stuff that sells, and then narrow my inventory down. So with this being said, I am off to mat some more photos. I hope you all had a great week
