Vending Events : Part 2?

So I’ve had a few people reach out to me about planning for events.

I start planning my vending event calendar in January/February of that year. The Cons and large outdoor events start applications for events that soon.

There’s one event that I try to do every year in January that releases their applications in March for the next year. I’ll find out in roughly 16 days if I’ll be a vendor at the 2024 event.

This is why it’s important to do the research on the events you would like to vend at. Now, there are smaller events that will be looking for vendors right up to the day of the event,and I know people who do really well at those. I’m, personally, not at fan of them, but then most of those events aren’t events where my product does well at.

That’s another thing, don’t feel like you have to do every single vendor event someone says you should do. Try to find events that work for your product.

I make primarily fantasy and ttrpg based amigurumi. The more traditional craft shows don’t work for selling my product.

Does that stop me from recommending the shows to other vendors I know whose product would sell well at them? No.

Also, I made a theme change and had my technical support fix the category links so that they now link where they are supposed to go. There will be a shop update in the next few weeks, and possibly some better videos uploaded on YouTube before the end of the summer.
