| p.1 #5 · Anyone set-up a booth and sell prints at a street faire |
I've talked to people who set up booths to sell their photos (framed as well as matted) in community art shows and asked how many they needed to do in a season (Summer in our area) to make it worth while. "At least twelve," has been the usual answer.
There's the entry fee, costs of producing the photo products, $1,500 or more for the booth (since rain and wind are always a possibility, you want your photos protected), a long day to set up, another long day to take down, and two long days of sitting in the booth. Large display panels to hang photos are needed. A vehicle or enclosed trailer large enough to transport booth, display panels and photo products is needed. You need to be set up to accept credit cards -- business agreement with provider, as well as equipment.
Photos must be exceptional to get any attention at all.
