Craft Market Review: Craftadian Virtual Market

As a vendor, I understand the worries of selling at a market that you’ve never sold at before, especially a virtual one. I’ve personally sold at unsuccessful markets where traffic was low. But I’ve also done some excellent markets where they were well organized and had a lot of traffic. I know some of my fellow vendors have participated in Craftadian virtual and in-person markets before, but many haven’t. I did one in June, so I thought I’d write up a review of my experiences over on my blog! With all of that being said, here is my review of the Craftadian Virtual Market.

Craft Market Review: The Mom Market North York

As a vendor, I understand the worries of selling at a market that you’ve never sold at before. I’ve heard about other vendors getting ripped off, and I’ve personally sold at unsuccessful markets where traffic was low.

I know some of my fellow vendors have participated in The Trinity Bellwoods Flea before, but many haven't. Since I've sold there a couple of times now, I thought I'd write up a review of my experiences over on my blog.

Craft Market Review: Port Credit Farmers Market

As a vendor, I understand the worries of selling at a market that you’ve never sold at before. I’ve heard about other vendors getting ripped off, and I’ve personally sold at unsuccessful markets where traffic was low, and little to no marketing was done to promote the market nor its vendors. This past summer, I did two markets with Port Credit Farmers Market- one in June and one in August. Since I’ve sold at other markets before this, I have some expectations for how a successful market should be run. That’s why I’m continuing my blog series called “Craft Market Review.” I will give a thorough review of my vending experience at the market that I’ve been to. Now, I’m...

5 Things You Need: Pop-Up Market Edition

I’ve sold at 6 pop-up markets now, and I’ve learned quite a few things each time. So, I wanted to share this knowledge with you all. Today, I’m going to share the 5 items (or categories of things) that you MUST bring with you to all of your vending events! Of course, this list is excluding your products because I think that is obvious. With that being said, let’s get into it!
