There’s no secret that I love craft fairs! Well, I love selling at them more than I love attending them…but that’s the introvert in me. Anyway, I thought maybe you’d enjoy these best-selling, in-demand crochet items for summer craft fairs.

These are all patterns that are profit-optimized and perfect for warm weather craft shows.

Now, all of the designs in this list are home decor or home use items because, if you’re not selling lightweight, niche items…like baby layettes or stuffed animals, it’s hard to find items that are both profitable and popular in the warmer weather. Trust me, I’ve made the mistake of trying to sell hats and scarves at a spring craft show and it was a disaster…even though it was a chilly day.

In the spring and summer, buyers are thinking about outdoor entertaining, spring cleaning and organization, and, of course, vacation! And, while beach cover-ups are great personal projects, they don’t make for a profitable product line.

So, the crochet patterns I’m sharing today are items you can pair with your existing (profitable) product line or use them together to start a new line just for summer. Either way, I think you’ll be pleased to give them a try and see how your target customers respond.
