I'm new to the forum.
Mrs. M's Handmade is the business; and it's the brainchild of my wife and daughter-in-law, who make lotions, balms, sprays & scrubs. People that use them, love them ... and that's what started this craft fair thing for us. Our first event was March 2014.
I've been a woodworker for 40 years, and have only this year begun to make things to sell. Currently, I'm making wooden cutting boards and serving pieces. I'm getting a lot of "wows" at the events we show at, and the lady's create quite a buzz as well, so we're off to a solid start.
Even though we are firmly connected to each other - family! - the lotion business and the woodworking business don't have much to do with each other in the booth. People sometimes ask, and they certainly get that it's family, but the products are not connected in any other way.
Our last, and so far, best event, was Santa's Art Shop in Ridgecrest, CA. We had a 10x10 booth, and I really felt crowded with two neighbor's side walls up on either side of our open booth.
Do you have any experience with such a two-headed business? Any problems with "sharing" a booth? We have done some double booths to give both of us more room, and that is great when the budget allows ... but we're still sharing space, money and theme. What do you think?
