Participating in craft fairs right now is a bit different than most years. In this world of COVID-19, it’s important to take a few extra steps of caution to make sure that customers feel safe, and you keep yourself healthy!
After participating in a few shows this summer, here are a few out of the box craft fair tips you can consider for your next show.
Gloves and hand sanitizer
Our hands touch so much, especially during shows. They pop up a tent, handle money, adjust jewelry others have touched, and so much more. The last thing you want is to spread germs from your hands. Keep your hands clean by making sure you have hand sanitizer in bulk. Or, if you really want to protect your hands, grab a box of gloves to help the spread of germs.
Wear a face covering
If you’re interacting with potential customers, they want to know that you’re doing everything you can to keep them safe. Wearing something over your mouth is a great way to make sure that you’re keeping your germs to yourself and considering the health of your customers. While it makes a warm afternoon that much hotter, it could put potential customers at ease when they see you wearing it. And that could help lead to more sales.
Pick outdoor shows
With the social distancing measures in place, outdoor shows make good sense. The fresh air puts everyone at ease. The larger space can allow those who attend to social distance. The larger space can also allow the vendors themselves to social distance. For as long as possible, take advantage of outdoor craft fairs.
