Hi all, Im doing my 2nd market (hoping it goes as good as the first) and am wondering how to display my hats and fascinators? I dont really want to spend anymore money at the moment as am saving for a holiday. How would you do it? Previously I displayed them on a cabinet and on the table, but i will be making maybe 10 or more, and have no idea where to put them?



Also - bows and earrings, they take up so much room on the table - I envision them hole punched and then hanging on hooks or nails on a board of some kind, but how to make it?? And how to make it stand up if im not against a wall??



Oh, and it's a Polka Dot Vintage market, so something that has an old world feel to it would be also cool if you have any ideas?? I have also previously displayed 3 pieces on top of a sewing machine case.

Ack, wish I was good at carpentry  Undecided

For the fascinators you might be able to do something like this display fairly cheaply.
http://www.displaysense.co.uk/Acrylic-hat-display-stand-four-tier-hat-stand.html 

Cut some dowels in different lengths, some old CD's for the flat tops (you can get rubber grommets to fit the center of the CDs onto the dowels) painted or with felt glued to the top so the fascinators have something grippy to sit on, and a flowerpot filled with beans to make a nice "bouquet" type arrangement.  That would be fairly inexpensive and portable since putting the dowels into the flowerpot would make for easy set and tear down. 

Here is a link that describes the grommets I'm talking about, though it is talking about how to make a drop spindle the grommet idea is the same.

The board for your bows and earrings could be made using two boards hooked together on the top with hinges and a cord near the bottom to limit how far apart the boards can get.  This would display like an A frame and you could use both sides for hooks.

Here's a pic though it is not an earring display it gives you the idea of structure.

I hope my ideas make sense.  Good luck on your upcoming show!

Do the hats and fascinators affix to one's head with a clip or comb? If so, you could make a ribbon memo board, and clip them to the ribbons. For your bows and earrings, perhaps hole punch the cards and put them on a framed peg board.

so ive ended up making a super big stand-alone piece of wood, framed with legs on hinges to stand up. Drilling holes in the wood -like peg board, and attaching hooks for all my carded bows and earrings! will post pics after the show happens. also a smaller stand - which will be a ribbon frame type thingy for my table which will hold my hair flowers. also im thinking about the cd concept for fascinator stand and is excellent, and want to apply it in a way that suits my stalls look! if i find a way i will also post pics of it! for now they will sit on my table, since everything else is hanging up now!  Wink

ive recently just seen at a show a hat display - a round piece of wood used as a base, then a chair/table leg used as the pole and on top another smaller disc of wood, padded out, then covered in velvet! FAB! they can be all different shapes and sizes..... so good!
