    click the “list” or wrench symbol in the upper right hand corner of your browner, then click “save page as” to save as pdf file. Do this for every web page you want to save, putting it in a craft business file or other folder you will remember. Good luck.

    I will be selling handmade cards in a Craft Fair next month. Any ideas about how to display them in an unique way?

    My question is what is the best way to take payment and keep track of sales when you have a shared booth with multiple vendors at same booth? Is there a work sheet for set up and then a point-of-sale receipt template? Suggestions?

    I’m thinking at having a booth at our local Christmas craft fair held at the Junior High. Roughly 200 boothes. I’ve noticed the last few years there are only one or two booths with kids stuff other than hair bows, tutus and baby items. This year one had doll clothes and one made pretend bows and arrows. Is there no market for children’s items? I’d like to do lap desk, fabric art sets, craft kits, small games, etc. seems like people, especially grandparents, would think these nice ideas for Christmas gifts.
