While going to the fair can be a great boredom buster for the summer and fall, it can hit your wallet hard if you don’t plan ahead. However, shopping at festivals can be a good way to save on handmade items, fresh food, and will help support local artisans. So, how do you balance the two? How do you avoid overspending on useless junk, while also buying handmade goods wisely? This post by Beth at UnskinnyBoppy will help:
-The Early Bird gets the Worm, BUT the Late Bird Gets the Better Deals
-Be prepared for heavy lifting
-Never pass up something you can’t live without, but don’t pay full price. Haggle, haggle, haggle!
-Be prepared to barter
-Find beauty in the ugly, think outside the box, and don’t be afraid of a little elbow grease.
