hey lovely people.

i need some help here.
my crafts are quiet for kids but i have a few things for adults i was wondering how could i make them stand out (memory wire bracelets)
certain kind of fabric on the table?

every year i just through the 102412390812904 stretchy bracelets on the table and have no room for my bags and memory wire bracelets.. oh yeah also the pillows and crayons. oh crap also duct tape wallets and other bracelets...
i just need some advise whats a good way to desplay these ideas.

also this year im in the process of making business cards how do i display them so they stand out? or i could always but they in baggys for when people buy things that way they have them already. :]


thanks. :]



also.. how much should memory wire bracelets sell for? i had it at 3$

I've seen stretchy bracelets on a post, like a tiny parrot stand (if that makes any sense), the only trouble is getting the one you want off.... I think that putting buisness cards in the bags is a great idea!

i don't really no what you mean with the parrot stand. but if its hard to get them off that probably wouldnt be good since those bracelet kids need to pick up and try on etc.

thanks for your comment :]

could you maybe get a board and put some hooks on it and hang them of that? I don't know how many you have (or what strechy bracelets exactly are) but you could alwys put a variety on the bored, even if the don't fit and then continuosly restock them.....

Leeleetea:
I need a parrot stand (at first i had no idea what you were talking about because in my head i said pirate stand, lol), does anyone know where i could get one? I figured as a last resort I could use wooden dowels and stuff but my family's tools are locked away and would be a pain to find plus they won't trust me to touch any of them, lol.

yes i could do that but i have like way to many. >.<


before i did a long string line and hung them stretchy bracelets with hooks on it. it was just hard because it was the back of the table and the kids couldnt really reach them.. maybe i could do that again just alittle closer..

how would i display the other stuff though. :/
like the memory wire bracelets..bags..duct tape wallets..crayons.

for bags, if you low on space on a table, you could make an almost jacket/hat stand-ish thing. A piece of wood with nails or hooks on it and then hang the bags (that used to do that for beanie babies, lol). You could make it really fancy too and pretty with some paint.....

I have no idea where you would be able to find something like that, it was just the first thing I thought of! Maybe someone else has tools you could use? It wouldn't be very hard to make.  If you nailed three pieces of wood together (something like a 1x2) to make a box, with notches in the top for the dowel to rest in. you would need to take the dowel off to remove the bracelets so nothing too permentant. I'm sure if you painted it and all it would be super pretty!

You could perhaps get mug trees to display the bracelets on,  I use silver ones that I picked up for 1.49 for displaying keyrings and bracelets,  I fit about 5-6 on each arm, so its not too many for people to take off if they want to try them on.  The ones I use have the arms sticking out at right angles rather than pointing up, so they don't look so much like mug trees.

Morbid - stand T shaped like a parrot would sit on I think (It took me a while to work it out as well)
