    I''m new, how do I find and enter into a craft fair?

    My name is Lisa, I live in Maplewood Minnesota. I''m interested in being in a craft fair but am having touble finding some. Also I''ve never been in one so I don''t know anything about charging tax. I make pop bottle dolls out of paper twist. I''m new to this forum and am not sure if I''m posting this in the right section, I appoligize if I''m in the wrong section. Thank you for your help.

    Hey Lisa! Check out indiecraftshows.com. It's an online listing of craft shows across the US and Canada. There are articles on the site as well that will help with your intro to craft shows.

    also try contacting your local chamber of commerce. once you've found a fair, the organizers can tell you if you need a business licence, etc. some fairs will deal with the licensing and taxes themselves with the percentage you pay them, others just want a flat fee and you deal with the applicable licensing and taxes yourself - but the business license paperwork you get should cover all that.
