Marketing tips for handcraft artists can include some free items as well as paying for advertising on various online sources such as Google Ads, Facebook Ads and even Twitter Ads.

Sadly, we only made one sale on our previous T-Shirt fundraising campaign and we have decided to try it again with a new one. BonfireFund has changed their format and now includes more T-Shirt style varieties as well as the ability to offer at least 5 different colors for each of these styles. We have updated our Mobile Shop page with the new links and pictures as well. Below you will find a picture gallery of the available T-Shirt Styles, Sizing charts, prices and color choices.

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.
