Full Answer

CraftLister.com allows you to search within a ZIP code, city and state or within a state as a whole, with options to limit results to only those that take place indoors or that specifically allow vendors to sell within the show. Results include contact information for the events and organizers.

FreeCraftFair.com offers similar search tools, and also includes tips on finding listings through other sources, such as the events section of local newspapers or by contacting nearby churches or other organizations to inquire about upcoming fairs or festivals. Craigslist.org also maintains events sections for many cities, in which users post information about upcoming events and fairs.

It is also possible to sell your handmade goods at flea markets, as they typically allow individuals to sell many types of items after paying the appropriate fees. You can also attend a flea market or similar event and locate other sellers to ask about different locations at which you may sell your goods.
