Taking the Next Step...

As a "boutique owner" (I put that in quotes because although I guess I am a boutique owner I don't really feel like one) I have big dreams. I figured I'd share one with you: I want to do craft shows! I know, it probably doesn't sound as exciting to you as it is to me. The problem is, I don't know HOW to do it. Especially because I don't want to start out at tiny craft shows; I don't want to waste my time. I want to jump right in and do ones that I know I will make money at because essentially, that is my overall goal in doing these. Well, that and getting my name out there. I don't want to be a tiny boutique that you can find only on Facebook or Etsy. I want to be BIG and I feel like the next stepping stone for me would be to do a craft show. A good craft show.
So to do it. Finding applications is easy enough. Submitting pictures of my work and me doing the work is easy enough. Submitting pictures of my booth? Impossible. I've never had a booth before. It's also winter here in Michigan so I can't set up a booth example outside. Furthermore I don't have stock built up to take pictures of said booth. So I guess, my goal is to find a big craft show that doesn't require a booth photo and pray I get accepted. Does this exist? I'll let you know...
