hi jungrrl! I've never done a craft fair but would like to. I have a question about displaying knit and crochet items. you got your hat/scarf/fingerless mitt sets, smallish items. there are sweaters, shawls, ponchos (out of vogue at this moment!) and other largerer thangs. then of course the biggies like lap thows and afgans. how can such combersomeness ever be displayed effectively? sheesh, maybe a store front! maybe a runway!! but seriously can you include this type of display in your tutorials? and maybe some people who have done such a sell with thoughts, ideas and pics? would enjoy some input.

Hello!
I like to crochet hats and headbands, but I have no idea of how I can display them. I admit, I have looked at those mannequin heads, but they're kinda creepy. Don't want to scare off the children. If anybosy has a solution I'd be eternally grateful!

Dead thread, but I am going to respond anyway  Tongue

I don't crochet... or knit for that matter, but I have worked a ton of craft shows for my pops, who makes his own natural cleaning products and soaps, and have seen some pretty cool displays.

One lady made some cool hat displays out of wire armature. Another simply stuck a Styrofoam ball atop a stick in a stand and covered it. There are a ton of round-ish things you can use in the that way, you just have to keep your eyes open! I hope this helps!

another option is a small ball ..... something that a kid would recognize and laugh at Wink
