I’ve talked to many crafters and other vendors about what makes an event work in terms of sales. The more experienced vendors say there is no way to predict it – that sometimes you sell a lot and sometimes you don’t. But on analyzing my experience this year I notice a pretty strong (and unexpected) correlation: The smaller my booth space is, the better the sales. The width of my booth this time was 6 feet, which I’ve done before, but it was only about 5 feet deep. All of my boxes and supplies are hidden under the table, so I had to sit sideways, squeezed between the table and the back wall. By a pretty good measure, this was my best sales event of the season!
