I had my first craft fair in November or December 2018. I started selling candles around May 2018, I'm not sure why it took me so long to do a craft fair. I think it was because I felt like I didn't have enough to sell, I also didn't want to spend money on a table when I still hadn't made a profit. However at this point I had only sold 1 candle on Etsy so I figured that it wouldn't hurt to attend a vendor fair.
This vendor fair was located in a daycare, it was Christmas season so people were busy doing their shopping and they also had a Santa visit the daycare. There was many people who attended their fair, however, the building was split in two. We happened to be on the side that people went to when people were already done with their shopping. We were an afterthought. Almost no one on that side ended up making a profit or even their rent back.
