2009 Florida Art and Craft Show Season

March 2009

There are probably more craft shows in Florida each year than in the rest of the country combined.  Floridians love crafts—they love to create them and they love to buy them.  Plenty of eager tourists love to buy them too and they know that there is no better place to buy hand-made crafts than in Florida.  If you are building a craft show business or just thinking about getting started, rest assured that 2009 is going to be a great year for craft shows in Florida.

There are already craft shows booked in Florida almost every weekend and there are some weekends in which several are scheduled in different areas.  This means that a crafter in Florida should be able to work as much or as little as they want depending on the income goals they have set for 2009.  This can definitely be a full-time income and this year’s profits from craft shows in Florida are anticipated to be better than ever.  As odd as it may seem, people buy more crafts items during tough times than they normally would because they are looking for inexpensive ways to feel better.

Preparation for this year’s craft shows in Florida is going to be vital.  Keep in mind that you will be competing against some of the most experienced and talented crafters in the world; so your creations and your display must really shine in order to attract wide attention.  That will ensure steady sales and decent profits this year in Florida. There is plenty of money to be made, but you will need to be at the top of your game if you want to beat the competition at this year’s craft shows in Florida.

Once you have perfected your crafts and your display, you should check your attitude.  The only thing that will attract more customers to you than a catchy display is a positive attitude and radiant personality.  Be prepared to provide great customer service and to follow up on leads.  Remember that you can sell your crafts in other locations as well rather than merely depending on the craft shows in Florida.  Gifts shops and online sales are two other options.
Just remember to sharpen your skills and adjust your attitude and be prepared for the best craft show season ever in Florida this year.
