“The best crochet items for spring and summer craft fairs”
I know I’ve Googled this phrase more than once in my time as a crochet seller. How about you?
Planning inventory for cold-weather fairs is so easy…people need hats, gloves, scarves, blankets, and holiday gifts, and you can offer them in any multitude of yarn weights and designs. It’s not so easy, though, to determine the best crochet items for warm-weather craft fairs. Gone is the need for super bulky (and super quick to make) winterwear.

I searched and searched the sites of both well-known and up-and-coming crochet designers to select a variety of products that should work well for you this spring/summer craft fair season. Each of these products is quick and inexpensive to make and/or a highly sought after product this season.
