In your Modify Profile area, you will need to select your Handmade Products designation. After speaking with promoters who allow different levels of handmade products at their events, we developed a percentage scale for you to best represent your items. Please be sure you represent your products correctly.
While commercial and retail items will always be welcome on FestivalNet, it's important not to classify your items as handmade if they are not.
If you've made any part of your product yourself, it is considered handmade. If you've purchased a product from another vendor with the intention of reselling it, it is not considered handmade, even if that person made the item themselves. Handmade items must be something that you made.
If you are not sure about your classification, we can not decide this percentage for you; speak to promoters who allow some percentage of handmade items for feedback.

Art - it's subjective! Items that are "fine art & fine craft" are of course handmade, but are also finely created artistic items and typically non functional, but in some instances, may be. Think of "handmade" items as more functional or useful, not that they are not also artistic and creative. Consider where a prospective buyer might go to find your item when deciding how to list it.
The term 'fine' before art or craft does insinuate the mastery of something, IE training, development and years of practice toward your art or craft. Such works are not easily duplicated by someone with less skill/training/practice.
