CATSJewlery and I participated in a smallish fair last weekend. The turnout wasn't as great as I would have liked, but we broke even. I think we were just at the wrong type of fair. It was a first year event at a small town catholic school...I think most people were looking for country type crafts.
Anyway, here are some photos of our setup. Sadly, we were in a classroom and we never thought of backdrops. We went with a winter/snowy theme for our display- seeing as how its getting close to the holidays. Our table had a base cover of white flat sheets with a shimmery, sheer, pale blue/aqua fabric over it. I then took a sheer fabric w/ glittery spots I found on sale ($1/yd!) and kind of bunched it and ran it under/around our displays. It really did look pretty and snowy to me and not overly Christmassy.
Our earring display. CATS' father made it, and it actually has a shelving unit attached at the base, but we covered it with glittery drape fabric (for the base of an Xmas tree)- he had painted it purple. We then draped necklaces on the glittery fabric. All of our bracelets were placed in rice- filled glass plates. Also made a sign advertising custom orders.

Magnet board with Bubble/Marble Magnets. I just covered it with wrapping paper. It is sitting on an easel. Previously, we propped it against the table.
Shot of tray displaying CATS' wire-wrapped pendants and some leverback earrings of mine. Also, polymer pengiun ornaments on the box. Funny story, that box. It was supposed to be the base for a home made "stick pinetree" display for bracelets. That didn't work, and the penguins took over.
Finally, a pretty little pinetree filled with reindeer jigsaw ornaments! I covered the base with pearlized easter grass that was meant to cover something on the failed "stick tree" display. I think it looks better there anyway. ~_^ A snowflake was the tree topper.
Any comments? Anything we could do better? Lemme know!
