Craft Shows

I'm one of the new people at this. I have no clue where to start selling my things. Last week I placed an ad on Craigs List under Arts & Crafts and Events. It worked! I'm booked for every Saturday in November and first Saturday in December. There were responses for events after the holidays going into spring. If you are still looking, give that a try.

There is a magazine called *Where it's at* and it has chronological listings of shows in Texas as well as other near-by states. I would suggest going to their website & seeing if you can p/u a magazine in your area. If not I sell them at my shop, they are $6.00ea. I have 6 Holiday editions left if you need one. They don't put a Jan or Feb mag out.

Try calling your local chapter of civic groups. For example the Red Cross, Business Professional Women's (BPW), Art Group, etc.

They have to do some sort of fundraising and perhaps they host a show.

I found some in the green sheet. I will look into that magazine. Is it a yearly planner or seasonal? Thank you for the heads up.

Ive been looking for shows in Houston too and all I have found is that a few churches and schools have an annual fair...nothing too big. But farmers markets also like vendors that sell homemade products. Search houston farmers market and youll see a list of a few that are open atleast once a week
