Product Description

From Library Journal

For many crafters, the proliferation of craft shows presents an opportunity to do enjoyable work while making money. However, the craft business is like any other small business, with all the pitfalls. Kadubec, who with his wife ran a successful business selling baskets at shows for several years, here gives us the benefit of his experience. In the chatty, anecdotal style usual in this type of guide, he emphasizes good business practice as it relates to dealing with customers, pricing, and presentation in the show booth. There is a lot of behind-the-scenes information about applying to shows and dealing with promoters. For its realistic picture of today's craft business, this is an excellent selection for public libraries.

Format: Paperback
If you want to get the equivalent of an immediate 17 years of experience in the craft show industry, read this book. Phil Kadubec has given us the straight talk and advice to help us avoid the usual costly mistakes. This book is a must-read for anyone contemplating entering the craft show scene. Every aspect of the business is covered with self-effacing honesty, wit and wisdom. I thought the sections on designing a booth, and dealing with customers were particularly good.

I dislike purchasing books that offer more in the title than they deliver. I would have preferred more specifics in this book than narrative generalities. B/W photos were poor. The promised section on booth design left me with more questions than answers. This book offers nice filler information, but if you're looking for nuts and bolts, look elsewhere.

HASH(0xa5d67408) out of 5 stars A must read for Crafters that want to make a living doing it full-time May 28 2013
By R. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wish I had found this book sooner. It is filled with incredible insight into the craft show circuit. The original edition was published in 2000 and updated in 2007. I found that most of the content is from the original edition and that's great. The updates aren't nearly as useful as the original gems of wisdom laid out throughout the book.

It covers practically every aspect of the craft show business model. The writing style makes it easy and enjoyable reading..

Well worth the purchase price! Enjoy!

HASH(0xa43d2a20) out of 5 stars A 'must' for any involved in crafts. July 26 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The second updated edition of a craft-maker's classic business reference is a pick not just for business libraries, but for general-interest collections catering to home craftspeople. Here's a compendium of tested advice on how to sell in today's craft show and Internet markets, from planning a general marketing strategy for each of these areas to understanding how changing economic and fashion trends affect crafts sales. It comes from an established jewelry maker who provides a range of tested insights, from how to price crafts to handling street fairs and other public show venues. A 'must' for any involved in crafts.
