75 Items You Should Bring With You To Your Next Craft Show

Being my second year as a craft show vendor and having experienced some minor disasters at last year’s shows, and previous shows as a spectator, I decided to make myself a list of items to prepare for all scenarios. I’m going to be ready this year… I know, famous last words…

At my first show I had hanging pegboards at the back of my canopy and halfway through the show one of them fell down. The glue didn’t hold and it separated from the hanger. Lesson learned, don’t use glue to do what nuts and bolts should be doing. It left my booth looking lop-sided and with a third of my product on the ground! I also had a friend who went to an outdoor show and the wind blew so much the whole time that she was chasing her product down the sidewalk the entire time. I’ve been to shows where canopy’s were blowing down, where product was getting rained on, where the electricity went out, and more. This list should help manage some of these disasters and prepare you for the worst.
