Does anyone here have pictures of past booths/tables they've set up? I think it would be extremely helpful if we could see examples of how it's done!

I'd really love to see how people setup to sell jewelry -- How do I fill a large space with such small items?

i used to have an acquaintance who sold jewelry. she *didn't* fill up the whole booth with her jewelry. she had rather high tables (perhaps custom built?) across the front of the booth, that's all. and she displayed her jewelry in lift-top cases, which opened towards the inside of the booth for security purposes.

this may be a fancier set-up than what you need. this gal sold sterling jewelry, with prices ranging from $35 to $125 (this was 7 years ago).

i just googled for her biz name (wristworks), but don't see a site for her. darn.

hope this helps, and good luck at your upcoming shows!

I've done one Bead / Jewelry show. Here is a pick (not such a great one) of my set up:

Thanks, Rojo Beader -- That does help! Did you have one table or a whole booth?

that looks real nice Rojo! i love the black fabric.  The great thing about using fabric is that you can also safety pin ur stuff to it, to stop from slippage or people stealing it.... it's a shame u have to watch out for that stuff, but I know its a real issue for the jewelry people at places I've set up [we do fleamarketing, not crafts]

I had one Six Foot table that I shared with a friend. It was plenty of room. I used pillows to pin the jewelry too, it worked out really nicely and i got a lot of compliments on the display!

Hrmm... I need to come up with some way to fill a whole booth -- It's either 10x10 or 10x15. I have access to plenty of tables, but there's no way I can make that much jewelry in the next 7 weeks or so.

I would suggest filling up some of the left over space with things telling about your jewelry.  You could have different fliers for custom orders, a company/creator bio, and whatever else you can think of.  Business cards and other little things with your info that people can just pick up and go work wonders.

Here is a picture of the onlu "booth" I've ever had.  I may have posted it up before, but I don't remember.  Anyway, I didn't put that much work into it because I knew there was only going to be about 20 people there.  Needless to say, I didn't really have to work to attract the people.  Only about 7 of those 20 were selling things.  Oddly enough, I made 80 bucks, which I was really proud of; as I sold all but one of my items!
Over towards the right hand side of the table, in front of the manaquin head you can see the box I had that held fliers for custom orders, and the book besides it held samples of my fabrics, so people could chose what fabrics they wanted.

Oh!  I don't know how artistic you are, but I think it would be really neat (and space consuming) if you made a big carboard cut out of someone (or bought one) and had that wear the jewelry you make.  Just a thought.
