Los Angeles Public Library Maker Faire Saturday, December 3, 2016 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM (PST)
How it went:
Cost of space $0.00! Parking with validation $1
I decided to attend the Maker Faire to promote our DIY blog HowToEngineering.com
We have many items we made on the website that we had around the house, so we were able to bring them and show people! There were over 600 people there in the few hours we were there. This is a lot of free promotion for my company, I handed out almost all my fliers and over half my business cards!

My wife and I made a few of these when we were first dating. We wanted to make more to show people at the Maker Faire and write an article on here.
We used old circuit parts (Mostly scrapped from old electronics) and also some connectors, buttons, and even springs and nuts! Almost Anything will work as this is ART!

Our second swap meet – Glendale College Nov 20, 2016
how it went:
Cost for space $35 (With coupon)
It went OK. Right after we setup the rain started. The rain was on and off all day and not too many customers. We made one sale that really saved our day, before that we would not have broken even.
I know this parking lot is sloped on a hill. I came prepared with 2×4 wood pieces that I used to level the tables. I bet we were the only ones there that thought of that on their first time! Continue reading “Swap meet 2: Glendale College”

Our first swap meet Pasadena College Nov 6, 2016
How it went:
Cost of space $120 (WOW so much!!!)
It went OK. With the support of friends and family we were able to barely profit here.
Maybe it was the time change (daylight savings time) or maybe the cold weather or the location of our booth (we were over a football field from the public parking lot).
I am happy we went and had this opportunity to learn.
