2009 Wyoming Craft Fair Outlook

March 2009

If you are thinking of whether to start a crafting business or whether you should continue your current crafting business and participate in craft shows in Wyoming for 2009, the answer is a resounding, "YES!" Despite the difficult economic times that are affecting so many people in this country and around the world, the crafting industry is expected to do better than ever this year. That may seem odd unless you know your economic history. Think back to the Great Depression. People either became very poor or very wealthy during those terrible times. There are some businesses that actually do better during tough economic times and crafting has been one of them. Why? It is simple, really. You will do better at craft shows in Wyoming this year because people are depressed and looking for things that make them feel better. Isn't that amazing? This is great news for you because you can continue to do something that makes you happy, help other people feel happier, and make a lot of money at the same time! What could be better than that? Your job as a crafter is to offer people items that make them smile and warm their hearts. When you do this well, you will be rewarded handsomely. So, what crafts should you offer at crafts shows in Wyoming for 2009? Keep in mind what people are looking for—a way to feel better about themselves—and try to examine whether the crafts you are offering will do that. Examples range from jewelry that makes a woman feel beautiful, to scented bath salts, pins, pictures to cards with cute or funny pictures or sayings on them. You want to make a person feel pampered and laugh, or at least to have a warm smile. There is another trend that will actually help you make more money. You should try to make your crafts from as much recycled materials as possible. Right now people want things that are environmentally responsible, so you should be using recycled or renewable resources wherever possible. This works to your advantage as you incorporate soup cans, yogurt cartons and cereal boxes into your crafts since you can get these items for free. The more you save on materials, the greater your profits will be. So, as you can see, the outlook for 2009 craft shows in Wyoming is great. This year will be whatever you make of it; so get prepared and make this your best year ever.
