Mobile Shop Fundraiser First Update. We have been going for about a week now and have sold 1 Hoodie so far. On our campaign page you also have the option of just donating money towards our goal: https://www.bonfirefunds.com/southern-women-crafts-is-going-mobile
Since we really need a mobile retail shop to house our vast supply of handcrafted items we have created over the last couple of years we are going to run a T-Shirt Campaign to get some initial funding to buy a used vintage trailer and convert it to a mobile retail shop to use while we are gathering the funding for our brand new replica 1961 Holiday House Travel Trailer Mobile Retail Shop. Once we purchase the vintage travel trailer, remake it into a mobile store and use it a few months we may be able to offer it as a reward for our main campaign or even rent it out for local craft businesses in North Florida and Southern Georgia to use at their own craft vending opportunities.

We have been working all day adding several different types of hand crocheted items that we thought might be nice for our readers to read over and possibly buy something from us or at least share the listings we their family and friends. 😉

Of course, you will also want to get started on posting the events on your website and social media pages so that your fans and customers will know where you will be and when.

Summer is absolutely the best time to make crafts. Not only is it too hot out there in our Florida sun to try and participate in outdoor craft vending opportunities there isn’t all that many out there to participate in. Granted, there is the Florida Folk Festival during Memorial Day Weekend, the Blueberry Festivals in June, Independence Day Celebration festivals all over the state in July but August is mostly a bust anyway. Our craft selling opportunities don’t really get going until about the end of September or the beginning of October. Then it is hot and heavy until just before Christmas.
