Craft Vendor Business Advice for Beaders and Other Jewelry Makers
If you make jewelry, chances are you have considered, at least once, becoming a craft vendor.
You can give just so many necklaces to loved ones until they make faces when you give them a gift. Your house is probably overflowing with beads, strings, wires, and the tools of your trade.
This makes finding room for one more project a challenge.
If you do not know where to begin, the book “Ultimate Guide to Your Profitable Jewelry Booth” can guide you to starting your own jewelry booth. As a creative outlet, your hobby is already rewarding.
Imagine it becoming more so when you turn your hobby into cash.
It can be frustrating for the new craft vendor to learn all the details of becoming successful and profitable when they begin.
This book can take a lot of the guesswork out of the process.
The book is divided into eight sections, each section focusing on one aspect of a successful business.
Section 1 talks about licensing and insurance, both important considerations before you take your jewelry out into public places to sell.
Section 2 delves into the money aspect: how to price your merchandise, managing your transactions, and how to prevent your profits from walking out the door with shoplifters.
Section 3 is about personal considerations such as running a booth alone, keeping healthy and what to wear in all types of conditions.
Section 4 is about craft shows and how to find the best ones for your business.
Section 5 deals with the physical booth itself and things to take into consideration. Section 6 teaches you how to display your merchandise for the greatest impact.
Section 7 provides tips on how to maximize your profits.
Section 8 demonstrates how to evaluate your shows.
