The Christmas season is synonymous with many things, including craft fairs and shows, holiday bazaars, etc. They are a great way to show off your creations and sell to crowds, especially if you don’t currently have a store front. Some places even allow you to bring your heat press along, to personalize items on demand. A quick Google search will bring up a slew (or sleigh) of opportunities to sell your items at holiday events.
Whether or not you choose to sell your own items in a booth at the event, you can always contact the organizers to create and sell shirts that promote the event, many times as a fundraiser for the venue, i.e.: schools, churches, community houses, etc. Also, it may be worth it to call the exhibitors – they may want to buy shirts and/or aprons from you to wear in their own booths to advertise their businesses.
Check out how to create this example for a craft fair.
