20 Things to Bring to Your First Craft Show or Market

It’s that time of the year where it seems like many of us makers are getting ready for craft shows, so if this is your first time I have some advice for you as well as what to bring! Although some craft shows tend to run year round, the holiday season, as it begins to cool down, seems to draw out people from their homes and into their community. This will also be a great time to showcase your new items that you’ve been working on for the past two months! (If you haven’t planned out what you want to make specifically for the holiday season, check out episode #1 of the tea talk series to download the free pdf (no email required) and listen to the talk to get the most out of the download.)

10 Minute Tea Talk - Episode #5: Motivation Blues | AUDIO

If you're viewing this from a different blog reader, the audio cast is just above here ^

Hey Guys, welcome back for another tea talk. Today I want to talk to you about motivation. It seems like with the change of seasons, many of us shop owners are feeling changes with our motivation levels.

Since the summer months are slow for many of our shops out there, I just wanted to address this issue. I’ve noticed that a lot of you aren’t feeling it lately. Sales may be slow so you’re in a bit of a slump and you’re finding it hard to get motivated to work on your shop.

Perhaps you’ve even taken a day to two and you’re still not as excited as you originally were. You’ve essentially lost your mojo. I’m in a similar boat as many of you are, but I know some reasons why. So today I have a few things you can do to asses the situation. Let’s jump into it.

The audio version goes over 5 different points to consider. The main points are:

  •  Have you distanced yourself for long enough?
  • Are sales slow?
  • Are your views low?
  • Do you feel lost, like you're not going in the right direction?
  • Have you looked outward?
 

Ok makers, that’s all I have for you today. Are you going through the motivation blues? Let me know in the comments of this post, tweet me or send an email. If you have any questions you want addressed in the next tea talk, send your inquiries to teatalk[at]ietishana[dot]com. Ok makers, see you next time.
