Craft Show Business: How to Sell Jewelry at Craft Shows

Maximize Sales and Minimize Risks

This book has been years in the making and it’s a whopper, but don’t think that it’s all filled with fluff. I have poured my heart and soul into this puppy so that I can pass my knowledge on to you. 

Did you know that the number one reason why jewelry artists fail at craft shows is that they don’t know how to choose successful shows? After failing, most quit without ever knowing why they can’t get customers to buy their designs. 

Imagine if you could bypass the common mistakes and learn to effectively present and sell your work before booking your first show. Jam-packed with useful know-how, from a seasoned professional, Craft Show Business reveals how to sell jewelry using proven strategies for success, how to avoid bad shows and how to grow a succesful jewelry business.

There are a ton of craft show tips out there, but unfortunately, much of that advice does not dive deep into the most valuable how-to details that will bring you the most success. And some advice is just plain bad such as putting candy or treats out for visitors. We all want to attract the serious buyers, not only those who want free stuff. Save your candy dish for the wholesale shows and start learning how to serve your customers using strategies that bring in sales!

With over 25 years in the business, at over 300 shows, the craft show tips in this book will open your mind to the possibilities with useful and practical time-proven strategies. Discover proven methods for selling your jewelry, growing your perfect customer base and for building a successful jewelry business.

The 60 plus pages in the “Proven Selling Strategies” chapter alone will transform your perception with pivotal information that puts you in charge of your sales.

Here's what Pearl from had to say about the book:

"The book consistently came across as an in-depth guide to the craft show business.  Everything from booth design, booth location, preventing theft, time saving production methods, how to build a customer base to maximizing your year round income seems to be all covered and then some.  If a craft show business topic was omitted, I certainly couldn't find it."

"A substantial part of the book- approximately 40% - is devoted to selling strategies and it is what makes this book truly outstanding and unique for jewelry sellers especially those who haven't been in sales before."

"Highly recommended. A must read for any one serious about selling jewelry in person."
