Can't say how much calories, but YES!! this counts as exercise, you are moving.. And trust me, I've volunteered at craft fairs, and I regret taking my pedometer, to see how many steps I did.. Good Luck with your sales:]

I am a basket maker and do quite a few craft fairs during the summer and fall. On those days I typically leave my house between 5:00 and 6:00 am in order to drive to my destination to arrive by 7:00 am. Once there I have to unload my vehicle which has an EZ Up to be erected, heavy bags full of baskets and all my display equipment. Once this is done I start setting everything up. A task that takes approximately two hours and includes lifting everything around my space until the display is "just right". During the day I stand around waiting on customers and usually have to walk distances to the "facilities". At the end of the day, I have to reverse the set up process and drive home. Does any of this count as my daily exercise and if so how much? I realize I can't count the whole day, but surely some of this counts for either cardio or strength training.
