Nikki Mama,
I love your links. I sell bags too and sometimes find it hard to display them all without it looking "cluttered". I wanted to ask, where did you find that wire display that you have your bags hanging from? I wanted to do somethng like that, but didn't know where to get one and HATE going into Home Depot to try to "construct" one myself.  I have my second ever "real" show tomorrow, I will try to remember to take pictures of my set up.



If you need a quick setup for bags, try hanging your oven racks from your setup tent.  If you want them longer, tie them together with tie wraps.  That way you can cut them apart when you want to put them back in your oven.

That's a good idea, but this show is inside. No tent this time around. I was looking for something quick and easy to either make or buy that isn't heavy but can hold some of my totes... I think I will have to take my dress form with and hang my totes over that...do you think that will look alright?

That will work up to a point.  If you get too many on it, the whole thing will look cluttered.  Do you have a free standing coat rack?  That will work also, or anything that is free standing.

I use a cheap standing hat/coat rack as a nice portable handbag display.

The wire rack was actually an old closet shelf that I wasn't using.  I will also be doing 2 indoor fairs beginning of Dec and need to think about other ways to display.  I'm going to check out freecycle and craigslist for shutter doors.  A coat rack will be hard for me to transport.
Will let you know what I come up with!

Here is a picture of my craft show set up. I shared a booth with a friend - that is why the table is on an angle - the show wasn't that great - so I am glad that I shared a booth. The turning rack I got from my hubby who works for a cookie company - he had an extra rack so I spray painted it black and it was perfect for hanging my stockings and holiday decorations - I may use it again in the spring for purses etc. My neighbour also scored one from my DH and she uses it to display her hats. Well, enough talk onto the pics...

It's an excellent display.  Too bad your show didn't go better.

I just finished my first show. It went horribly and I sold next to nothing, but it was still an interesting experience and I think I did a nice job with my table. I create french beaded flowers and wire/bead bonsai trees. I think my stuff was just too nice (too pricey) for this show. Here's my table:

Here's my setup from last weekend's Market Day in Des Moines (first craft show!):


I'll have more pix later...but I just wanted to post this first one. Smiley

I sold quite a few things, but not as much as I thought I would. I know what people like and don't like now and what prices they're willing to pay, so I'll be much more prepared next time!
