I sell a lot of hair bows at craft shows - the problem is they have overrun my table. Most times I have a card sized table and have a lot of other things to display. My bows are on cards (about the size of playing cards). Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

Can you punch holes in the cards and hang them? Maybe on a spinning rack?

I have my info on the back of the cards were a hole would go. :/

This is my table the last few times - before I added last minute touches. My boyfriend and I share a table and in the next few big shows he needs more room. We are looking to buy a new table but have yet to find one that works!

I would suggest buying a new table.  Walmart has tables that fold in half in their sporting goods section.   I have three of these and love them.

Like jungrrl said, if you can punch holes in the card what about hanging them off some funky earring trees!?  Or stack a few different sized boxes under the table cover to build the table up vertically, makes it easier for people to see your crafts as well?

My husband and I built some display boards that are really easy and look great.  I'll attach pictures.  Basically, the bottom is a solid piece of plywood, and the diagonal section is planks nailed into a square shape, with black fabric pulled tightly around it.  I then put strips of ribbon down the fronts and labeled each "line" with a price.  

Sorry, it won't let me post a pic yet.

Make a hairbow holder (maybe a cardboard skull cut out or fabric covered cupcake shape?) and hang them off the bottom of the shape with ribbons in rows, and hang the holder on a clothes rack or mannequin or something?? Or lay out your fave bows, the star pieces, and put the rest into a big colourful bowl.....i like to dig for awesome stuffs  Smiley or you can put them out on saucers or fill some teacups or a large decorative plate. Or only keep your doubles under the table and have a sign saying if they want mulitiple of the same they are in stock just ask, etc.

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.
