Rock & Shop Prep

I have a newfound respect for makers who sell at shows. Prepping for the Rock & Shop Market has been a bit more work than I expected! It’s so much different than selling online, and there are so many things to think about that I’ve never considered before.

My favorite part has been collecting props for my display. I scrounged around the house for a few items, got my dad to make me some wood block “easels” for my prints, and found a few things on Ebay and Etsy. I’ve loved figuring out how to make the Wit & Whistle brand exist offline. I think I’m ready for tomorrow, and hopefully I’ll have some pictures to share next week from my first show!

    I love the items you’ve collected so far! Selling at shows is so much work, but I love the interactions you get to have with people. Wish I was local so I could check it out!

    Can’t wait to see pics from the show. I have done quite a few craft fairs and have another one coming up in Sept. Always looking for new display ideas ;)

    Your props fit in so well with your brand! Can’t wait to read about the show! I have my first one in July (scheduled) and may do one sooner too (kinda nervous!)…

    I’m in the process of prepping for my first market! I was just talking about props for it too. Yours are fantastic! I would love to get my hands on some of those wire baskets!

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
