Fine art and craft fairs are a great way to get your artwork out there and interact face to face with a big audience. Let Fresh Arts and Brittany Bly, Pop Shop America founder, guide you through selling local opportunities so that you can decide if local art markets or craft fairs are right for you. Learn how to navigate these selling opportunities successfully. This workshop will also discuss tips on how to grow your craft business from in person events. We’ll offer tips and tricks to keep people engaged with your brand and how to work with local boutiques too. Representatives from local shops and arts markets will be on hand to discuss their opportunities and application guidelines.
This workshop will focus primarily on local selling opportunities for art and craft makers and will not cover online sales or third-party platforms like Etsy. Instead at the Selling Local Workshop we’ll discuss opportunities, pricing your work, talking to customers, branding, signage, booth displays and more.
Pop Shop America is a modern craft fair that was founded in 2012. At our festivals, we host over 120+ handmade, vintage, and fair trade businesses Pop Shop America welcomes over 25,000 attendees per year. It’s the best place to shop handmade, vintage, one of a kind items like clothing, jewelry, furniture, antiques, and lots more.
