I am participating in my first psychic fair in October! Have you attended a psychic fair? Have you worked at a psychic fair? What were your experiences? What were you expecting vs what you experienced?
St. Augustine…I’m nervous! I don’t have a website but working on the rest! The chip reader was one of the first things I thought of technology ugh good information thanks!CONGRATS! How exciting!
I've read at a jillion of psychic fairs. Only ever had one negative experience and it was with another reader. LOL My expectations usually are the same as they are every day. Have fun, send good energy to attract good energy.
Some biz pointers are:
1. Make sure you have a swipe/chip reader for your phone or laptop. These days people will look at you cross-eyed if you ask for cash. LOL
2. Engage with people. Don't sit around at your table like a lump (Which many readers do! In fact they bring books and read them during 'dead' periods.).
3. Bling your table out in 'metaphysical woo woo stuff'. For the most part, the public expects to see that kind of stuff. It's part of the 'the show'.
4. MOST IMPORTANT - ask folks if they would like to be on your email/newsletter list. Then send out an email once per month or week or whatever. On occasion send discount coupons to the list but always stay in communication with them. That's a BIG way to build your 'list'.
5. Take selfies and post to Insta, Facebook, etc. Make sure you have a Facebook page and/or website where folks can easily find you in case they misplace your business card ... which I'm certain you have
Hope that helps! Which fair are you reading at? You're here in Florida, right?
Yes she did and so did you thanks so much!How fun!!! I went to one a couple weeks ago.... here are my thoughts. @Mama Bear covered A LOT of great info.
Because majority of my footprint online is using fake names, make sure you are upfront with how you intend to use their name/info for marketing purposes. I'll give you a fake name/profile to tag online but rarely do I give anyone my real name. I only use my real bday info with trusted friends and legal documents lol and there are a lot of us who like to stay hidden in the woo-woo
Make sure your devices are well charged and you have backup reader and power supplies in case you aren't near a power source. I had this happen to a lady inwas making a purchase with. Her device died and her reader broke lol it happens. Be prepared for it!!!
Offer a candy dish with GOOD candy assortment, including sugarfree. Think nice neighborhood Halloween candy lolol I'm a sucker for candy.... I'm not alone in that
Be sincere and engaging, not just your spiel, because no matter how well thought out, it will get monotonous and boring. I don't stop at boring energy and you probably don't either!!!!
Like Mama Bear said, bling it out, they're going for the fun as well as the woowoo!!!
I can't wait to hear how it goes!!!
Ummmmm.....St. Augustine is only an hour and a half away (and we frequent there often) - sounds like a road trip day! What is the fair called?St. Augustine…I’m nervous!

I’m only charging $5.00 for five minutes…I’m more in to it for the experience! I have never been to one never heard of one until this year your experience sounds fun makes me excitedJust for fun and in the spirit of a good gigliana ritual, I call psychic fairs, "psycho fairs." I have been to quite a few of them here in Ky, but not as a reader or vendor, but as a patron.
I used to have such a hard time because as an empath or whatever, I used to stay wide open and, I would end up picking up all the negativity around me. Even tho it was a generally happy place the negativity was enough to make me sick. So I had to stop going until I learned to shield myself. (I needed more Ju Ju juice).
Most people were understanding and offered to help me. I like the bond of psychic fair vendors and readers, I used to help sell tickets at the door, so I was allowed to join in the circle before the fair, go out and eat dinner, then after that, we generally had an open drumming circle. I miss the warmth of a good circle and the friends I made. I should go to another one soon.
Anyways what got me thinking about this is I would love it if the wild pack and Mama Bear could all do a psychic fair together. I think that would be really cool. I don't know if there are plans to do something like that but I just thot it was a cool idea. I guess we all live too far apart, but who knows, ....maybe someday.
Sorry didn't mean to write a book, but I did want to draw closer to everyone here. I know a lot of you are there for the money, but beyond that, what is your favorite part of a fair???
I’m very sensitive to energy as I am sure many of us on here are so this sounds like it’s really going to challenge my shielding practicesI have been to a few over the years as a visitor, not a reader.
The one thing that i do remember being told after going to my first one was to go earlier in the day if not used to them. As a build up of negative energy can cause issues. That first gave me a headache after only 30 mins. I had to go outside 3 times that afternoon. So every other one i went just after they opened and had no issues then.
Its the negative that some visitors can bring in and then let go. Where i went there were many things going on, not just readers. Reiki was a big thing too, as they were big fairs.Negative energy! Shouldn’t it be all love and light?!
I've gotten my own little how to shield - I like black clothing (lace and velvets) - I also like to shroud myself in a big bubble that I envision surrounds me. Otherwise when I go out where there are other people I have major issues with both energy and thoughts bombarding me.I’m very sensitive to energy as I am sure many of us on here are so this sounds like it’s really going to challenge my shielding practices
I struggle with those things as well terribly I do the envisioning myself in a bubble sometimes is doesn’t work and I have to reenforce and then go through this whole cleansing process when I get home in the shower! My intention that day is to meditate prior envision my bubble and sit in it for awhile before going I will also do the black clothes love that thanksI've gotten my own little how to shield - I like black clothing (lace and velvets) - I also like to shroud myself in a big bubble that I envision surrounds me.
