The “Nikolausmarkt” in Aachen was the first craft fair where I got a booth and possibility to sell my crafts. It was a great adventure and I learned a lot from this experience. For example it does matter where your booth is on the market. My booth was kind of hidden on the back side of the market and there were two or three booths in front and close to the food court, who were selling very similar products. Solution ideas: 1) come up with other product ideas or 2) insist on a different booth location next year. Or do both.
I did not sell as many products as I hoped but I am not disappointed. I had a lovely time thanks to the people who were helping me, including two friends, my husband and the neighbours who were selling next to me. And I still have the rest of the products to sell online. Also, I gave out lots of business cards hoping for orders in the future.
