Booth Set-Up

by mary June 11, 2014

As I've written in the past, I'm not entirely satisfied with my booth set-up, & have been collecting things to try to make it a bit more interesting.

This afternoon, I spent some time working on my booth for the up-coming Beaverdale Farmers Market (I've signed up this year to be an "occasional" vendor & will do 1 day a month & this coming Tuesday June 10 will be my first time).  I want everything to fit entirely under my 10' x 10' tent with a little room to spare just in case it rains, so I decided to go with a single table plus a small collapsible cocktail cart.

Given the smaller space for display, I decided I definitely wanted to use the vertical wire mesh unit that Steve made for me.  I also decided to use a couple of old wooden boxes to add some variation in height.  And, I thought I'd hang earrings & key chains on little plastic frames to again vary the height & make it easier to see them.

I also thought I'd try laying some of the bracelets on backgrounds, including a sheet of music, bingo card, piece of driftwood, & book -- to add a bit of interest & break up the white of the tablecloth.  And I added different backdrops in the little frames that the earrings are displayed on -- including music, sewing pattern, newsprint, map segment, & colored paper -- again to break up the otherwise all-white background.

(This week, we're going to get little weights to stick on the back of all of the necks & little plastic frames, so they don't blow over in the wind.)

I'm liking this design better than previous booth set-ups, but am also going to keep working on other ideas & posting our progress!

As always, thanks for reading & for supporting small businesses!
