So I've been up and running as a legal business from my certified home kitchen since April. Sales started super slow but have been picking up the past three months. But I need more sales to meet my financial needs and actually profit.
I've tried participating in a few craft shows and the last was a total bust. I've already paid for a spot in a local show at the beginning of December and I'm wondering what products you guys think would sell best? I also do cakes and other baked goods as well.
I was thinking about doing sets of 25 shaped mini cookies for people to use as advent calendars as well as a large square cookie cut into 25 pieces and decorated individually as an advent calendar. Also maybe minis packaged in the thin sleeve cello bags as stocking stuffers.
I was planning on taking preorders for anyone who wants to order cookies for me to ship as Christmas gifts.
Any other ideas anyone might have on how to make this show more successful would be greatly appreciated!
