Craft Show Tip of the Week

When you sell your craft you are a business. You have left the world of hobby behind. Businesses - especially businesses that sell - must comply with State and local regulations. Don't think that if you are "just selling at a craft show" and you don't have the business documents that you need, you will not get into trouble. Many shows require these documents to apply. Some local authorities visit craft shows just to check on proper sales tax collection, posting of authority to collect sales tax, etc. Do what you need to do before you do a show - avoid costly penalties.
