Plan Your Vendor Ops 2017

Now is the time to plan our your craft vending opportunities for the coming year. 2017 can be your best year ever if you are able to plan which events you want to participate in, application deadlines, costs, etc. We are still in the process of gathering information about all the North Florida Craft Vending events happening in the coming months to post them here on our calendar as well as participating in some of them. I like the printed calender myself so that I can write down the information in the blocks and have a visual reminder of when the events are happening. It also helps you to plan out your costs in the coming months. Finally, depending on the number of participants in the previous years it may help you to figure out how much inventory to have on hand.

This type of planning may allow you to plan out your creation schedule as well. I know most of us just like to create things we the mood strikes but sometimes it’s nice to be able to see when you may need to create more of the different types of items you sell and when. Now that the year is coming to an end it is also time to take a physical inventory. Again, I like using an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of my inventory. I can sort the listing in a wide variety of ways such as by type of items like necklaces, bracelets, wrist warmers, and the like. I have a column listing where each item listed online for sale so that I can sort the spreadsheet by that as well. Most of the online stores like Etsy and Amazon allows you to download your inventory but Handmade Artists does not. So it was just easier for us to keep track of things ourselves.

Till next time. Please keep sending in information about upcoming North Florida craft vending events for 2017.
