indigokat which bag were you talking about? Yeah I 100% sold out of everything there but I do remake stuff. I am going to be bringing many of the same bags to handmade arcade if that is close to you. If not just let me know and I can most def make one for you and mail it.

dishwasher182 heheee, I know...luckly it has never been too windy but sometimes they go flying off.
and thanks ; )


I guess it's hard to say which one I'm most in love with.  Smiley But I adore the spaceman and vespa one! I'm going to vendor at Handmade Arcade so I'll come find you with my wallet in hand!!

PenGwend- I know, I was so busy helping shoppers I almost never got to even talk to about half of the people who came into my tent. Thanks though ; )

IndigoKat- YAY! Can't wait to see you there! I am right now in the middle of a big purse sew-a-thon to get ready.

I just did my very first craft fair today... it was small and in a school which is good since I signed up on Thursday.  This is what I threw together.




AW, look at my adorable assistant!



I know I need to create more height next time... and I saw that a lot of people put together L shapes with 2 tables.  Any other ideas?

Here's my set up that I used this weekend. Made of pvc tubing...easy to set up and break down. I did it with my 7 year old neice in no time!

My personal advice is have an awesome display, but don't have a crazy sign. Crazy signs with curly or script fonts are hard to read and cause the buyers to continue walking. It's great to have a back display (as a tee shirt seller, I love when fairs offer those white grated back and side walls for the stalls to hang stuff on), however at this particular sale we just had tables.


We had two tables full of tee shirts, tanks, bags, hoodies, skirts, scarves and gloves.


We always set up a little area where people can place an order for something we no longer have in stock. I'm currently putting together a scrap book of our designs and such as a magazine to show what is no longer in stock that people can order.


We clearly post our prices and put up a sign so that people don't feel embarassed asking how much something costs.


Generally we just keep refolding stuff and keep it occupying the whole space of the table. Lots of people say that a cluttered display takes away, but I think customers like searching for gold.

Hi,
I saw you posted this in another thread. How did you get the PVC piping to stand? Did you just join in in a square or did you create feet? We just found out we can have "walls" in our show in a week and I have to quickly throw something together. Thanks for any help/advice!

Wow!  I'm glad this thread really took off.  I'm planning a few private parties so I was just stopping in again.  Everyone is doing such great displays!

Hi Indygo...here's a diagram of the actual "bones" of my pvc booth. I used 1" pvc and just draped black twin sheets over it. I used 6 sheets, draping them so my neighbor didnt have to look at the back of my pvc tubing. the vertical poles are 5' tall. Hope this helps!!

Sparkle Cookie, I really like your display, nice and colorful and the yellow tablecloth looks great.  Those bottles piled up look cool but might make me nervous to touch them in case they all topple down.
