Craft shows are great places to buy and sell unique handmade. They are a fantastic way to spend a weekend and relax from a hectic work week. Unfortunately, there are several cons/limits to traditional craft shows that you don’t encounter with virtual crafts shows. The biggest con is location. Traditional craft shows usually include local artists or those within driving distance. With virtual craft shows you are able to see a wide variety of handmade from all over the world.
Virtual craft shows have lots of other fantastic and convenient features. They typically are organized by categories and include a search box. So if you there is a particular kind of handmade that you are looking for, you can easily find it in a matter of minutes. Also you never have to worry about carrying around your handmade finds from booth to booth. Nor do you have to worry about if it is going to rain or be too hot.
There are never any lines and there is always fresh and new handmade and artists to discover. There are many similarities between traditional craft shows and virtual ones. For instance, just like at a traditional craft show, at a virtual craft show you purchase the handmade items you like directly from the handmade artist who made it. Both types of craft shows are a fun way to shop handmade and meet interesting handmade artists. So no matter your preference, just remember you can’t go wrong as long as you are shopping handmade and supporting gifted handmade artists.
