Fall Vendor Fairs 2017

Fall is a great time to support small and local businesses. You will find many of our partners from our small business and consultants guide will be at some of these fairs!While some people plan and plot their way through the large chain stores on Black Friday, consider searching for the perfect gift(s) for the holidays at one of San Diego’s many vendor fairs. Vendor fairs typically have a large variety of handmade goods for sale including jewelry, candles, pottery, artwork and more. An added bonus, you have the opportunity to support small business and momtrepreneurs.
Some favorite booths are those selling homemade food. Who doesn’t like to stop for a free sample? Consider using a jar of homemade barbeque sauce as a starting point for someone you know who likes to grill, and then add a book about grilling to round off the gift. Jellies and jams are also a favorite for the holidays, as you can pair them with baking mixes, utensils, serving trays, an apron and more.Gifts for the kids are abundant as well. Marshmallow shooters, crocheted hats, and tutus are popular items you will find at vendor fairs. And don’t forget to keep your eye out for something small for your child’s teacher!
Purchasing one of-a-kind items from a vendor fair reminds the gift recipient that you were really thinking about them at the time. Even if gift cards are more you style, keep an eye out for something small that will add a personal touch to your gift.

    Wanted to know what type of vendors do you let set up? I sell an all natural plant based luxury hair care line as a mompuenuer as a side business. How much for a booth/table rental?
