craft show seller survival checklist

Craft show season is starting to ramp up! If you’re a seller doing a different show every weekend, it can be hard to make sure you remember everything. How many times have you packed up for a show only to realize when you arrive that you forgot your Square, your snacks or any change whatsoever?

So we created this Day-of-Show Seller Checklist to help crafters everywhere stay on track and have more successful shows! Click the image below to download the checklist (the file has two lists per 8.5″x11″ page) and print it out to use for your next craft shows:
