Calling All Experienced Craft Show Participants!

This is one of the posters for my first craft show I will be participating in. It is very soon!! I need tips and advice for decorating a table, setting things up displaying my items, how to draw people in, what if I only accept cash and checks? Will this turn people off? HELP! Any and all information, help and advice is welcome! Thanks in advance!

I'm not an experienced seller at craft shows, but I'm a fairly experienced buyer. lol While it's not as convenient, I definitely understand when folks at craft sales only do cash and checks and while I don't always have cash, there's usually an ATM nearby or I have my check book.

As for displays, I say the biggest thing as a buyer is making your goods easy to see (something as simple as a foam board stand that has ribbon hanging over it for your pretty pins to clip to, for example), having your name easy to see, and making business cards available (since I often check in on someone I liked later even if I can't afford it in the moment) are the biggies.

I hope that helps!
