If you have not looked at EventLister.com in a while, you have not looked at it.
The New EventLister.com - More Resources, More Tips and Ideas, and More Complete Listings
( The CraftLister.com domain will always work, the name is in disuse because \'art\' shows were being lost. )
There are around 15,000 upcoming listings! About 4,000 new within the the last month ( turnover is that high and I am again concentrating on adding listings ).
There are now MORE PHOTOS on events listings! If a crafter marks themselves as accepted or applies online and the promoter marks them as accepted, then their profile photos will appear on the event lisitng\'s main details page in the photos area along with a link back to that merchant\'s profile page that also lists the event under their upcoming shows box. Artists and Crafters should upload photos to their profile here and should APPLY ONLINE or MARK THEMSELVES AS ACCEPTED online to any events they are doing. When buy/sell or customers see the listing, they will see what quality the show REALLY has coming to it.
Comment Received: RIGHT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a large flea market with crafters AS WELL AS THOSE WHO BUY NEW AND RESALE AND BELIEVE ME IT DOES NOT TAKE ME LONG TO SEE WHERE THE CUSTOMERS ARE AND WHAT THEY ARE BUYING. Brenda Barron (larrys old time trade days0Winnie Texas
Comment Received: Thanks so much for sending that - that is a GREAT reply from this crafter:
I was at a show once and a customer came into my booth and asked, \"Where do you BUY your things?\" I was FLABBERGASTED !!! And I kind of answered curtly, \"I do NOT buy my things; I MAKE them - ALL !!! I am NOT one of the \'buy/sell\' people !!!\" I immediately went home and made a sign that says something like: \"Thank you for coming and looking at my \'creations\'. I make all of my items myself and try to price them reasonably while giving consideration to supplies and the time it took to make them!\"
