In 2009, when A Small Creation was created, I would attend craft fairs to get my name and business into the community. I participated at different school PTO events and at a couple of Churches around the city. It did indeed do that. This was my foundation for growth and for that I am very grateful. However, over the years my purpose for participating in craft fairs is twofold. I continue to participate to get my name and business into the public but now I do it for even more important reasons. Participation in craft fairs is a way for me to give back to my community. I have been fortunate to be part of a community that allows me to give back.
In September, I participated in the Friends of Peabody Dog Park Vendor Fair where monies raised went to the development of a new dog park in Peabody. In October, I participated in the Fall Festival for the Department of Children and Family. I will be participating in another event on October 19th for Alzheimer’s. Upcoming vendor affairs include November 18th at the West Elementary School on Bow Street in Peabody to support their PTO; December 2nd at the Higgins Middle School in Peabody to support their PTO; December 3rd at Temple Ner Tamid on Lowell Street in Peabody to support the Temple; and December 9th at the Salem High School on Wilson Street in Salem, MA to support the Music and Drama Boosters. I have participated with most of these events since 2009. It is great to give back to the community. It is great to see many familiar faces and meet many new customers.
I do not change my prices for the craft fairs. When an item is purchased at the craft fair, it will be the same price as it is offered in the store. Come by and visit me at the various craft fairs. It is a great way to get your holiday shopping started and have some fun You will see other great vendors and support local merchants who our also supporting our community. To learn more about the craft fairs that I will be attending, please like me on Facebook and check out my website for dates and times. The truth of the matter is that I like to see YOU!
See you soon. Enjoy!
