Thank you for your enquiry. The Art of Selling Your Craft is a 40 page glossy booklet (A5).

It has been designed specifically at the cover price of just 3.95 to appeal to exhibitors with a set buget for research. Starting out in craft is very expensive with booking fees and a large out lay for stock etc and we wanted to make the book consise, affordable and practical for just this reason. In this case, size and price really does matter!

It is also offered at a wholesale price of just 2.25 and many of our customers are organisers who then sell the book on through shows to visitors and exhibitors.

Thank you for your interest.

Thank you for your email. The book is primarily aimed at beginners but there are sections on display and presentation and how to capture sales which would be useful to all exhibitors.

We have just sent eveluation sheets to all of our customers for October. When they are sent back, I will post a few comments on the site so that the forum can see what they are saying about the book.

Kind regards
