Pay particular attention to item 9. Staying current seems to be the key to success. I do feel that sometimes (most of the time) in small towns, it is difficult to charge for your labor. Also, do not let the words "our current economy" fool you. If you make qality items, folks will buy!!
One final note: try to find out our how many artists are in your particular category prior to sending in your hard earned money for craft shows. Currently, most of the shows have from 33-35+ percentage of vendors selling the same items. I sell all hand crafted jewelry designs!! Jewelry is the most competetive!!!
