Fortunately, my first show would be an indoor show, so I won't have to worry about weather. I'm looking at IKEA for some inexpensive ($5.99 each) corkboards. I was thinking of using hinges to make a triptych-style display board to stand on the display table and pin earring cards to. I also found a really promising idea from CUTEure Creations on Etsy about displaying hair clips and such. Here's a photo of her booth:
See how she's got dowels that hang with ribbon between them? I currently display my home stock in the studio on ribbons like this, but the ribbons are attached to my wall bulletin boards:
I was thinking that her idea might work pretty well for me, but now I wonder if my hair bows and flower clips also need tags like the earrings have. That's a lot of additional work, but if it's worth it in sales, I'm willing to do it.
I have a mirror to use for craft shows, so people can try on pieces and check themselves out. I'd really like something fun to display necklaces and earrings on, like a black candelabra, or something along those lines. Although a lot of my stuff is girly, I want to stay dark and metal with it - not get all super pink with feather boas and shabby chic all over the place... if you know me, you definitely know what I mean. Girly and cute, without being annoyingly girly and cute.
Got any ideas? Let me know what's worked for you, or what you think might work for me!
