In May I will participating in my second craft show/boutique. Considering this event is in April, I need start planning my display table for the show. I wouldto use many of the same elements I used at my last boutique in November, but develop it a little more. In November, I used a large white chenille bedspread I had in storage to cover the table, a small bookcase I painted white and a table top cork board cover in fabric with knobs for hanging hangers. Since my business in all about upcycling, I like to work with the same theme I had in November and for the spring boutique. Which means I might have some thrift store shopping to do.
I have been reading some blogs and looking at photos to get some ideas. The following seem to be the main tips the professional are sharing in planning a craft show display.
- Keep your design simple. You don't want to overwhelm your shoppers with too much stuff.
- Decided on a theme for your booth. I plan on staying with a retro/ vintage theme. This theme seems to complement my products well.
- Vary the heights of your displays, this is more visually interesting for shoppers.
- Use banners and signs to clearly identify your business. Don't make shoppers guess what you are selling.
- Clearly display payment options for shoppers. No shopper likes to be guessing how they can pay.
- Think outside the box for display items. Look at thrift stores for items that can reused in a different why.
The following are some of my favorite display ideas I found
I would love to hear what others have as suggestions for craft show displays.
