Today I'm doing a quick post on table display ideas for craft show events. There is much talk all over the internet about handmade events and festivals this season. I guess the weather is good for outdoor events...nice and sunny, although there has been heavy rains and thunder storms in some parts of the country this week. I have never been to a really big show and all my events have been indoors, so my set has never been big.
I sell jewelry, which sells better at events than online, because customers can see the actual items, touch and feel the texture, and try them on for good fit...so it's important to have accurate descriptions and photos that are very close or accurate to the actual products when selling online. I like preparing for shows and while practicing how I would lay out the table, I often get new jewelry ideas and end up making more items, which interestingly sell almost immediately...note to self...take pictures of new items to goggle at later. Pre-planning your table set up at home will save time when setting up at the event. One thing I don't enjoy is adding price tags, which may speed up a sale when a customer is browsing your table and I for one am sometimes afraid to ask the price of an item that I like for fear that I may not be able to afford it.
I am sharing a collection of photos from a Pinterest board. The photos were collected by Judy of Portable Graffiti Graphics, a Graphic Designer on The Zibbet Marketplace for handmade, vintage, art, and supplies.

Amanda Lynne Luxe has agreed to share some of her photos from her recent showing. I like how she priced the items, I usually put a price tag on everything which takes time and energy. Here is a link to Amanda's Facebook page...click here. The artwork was done by her too.
