Hi guys! I'm attending my second bazaar on October 21. I sell guitar straps and at my last bazaar (which was my first!), my friend and I looked like total amateurs! I ended up placing all my guitar straps on the table, coiled up and looking like this:

I'd like to display it in a less messy manner...and without hogging up the table! Sad Any suggestions? My booth space is about 10x6 feet, and I'm sharing it with a friend who makes embelishments for shirts.

Could you maybe display a guitar hanging on one of them somewhere so people could see it in use and then coil the rest neatly into some sort of cool bin from the container store?  I have no practical experience in craft shows, but just thought it would be a good way to not have them take up too much space but still show at least one in all it's glory Smiley

Another possibility to show off a few more straps without coiling them would be to create some sort of backdrop.  You can draw/paint up a few guitars on quality material then cut some slots where you can slide the straps into.  Huh  Perhaps you can hang the backdrop at the front of the table so it doesn't actually take up space on the table.  It can also serve as a sign for your table.

I think you need to think vertical.  Try to find a slanted rack similar to something you'd find in a department store and hang them.  I've seen them displayed this way and it's very easy to browse.

Definitly something like this.

if you have an old tie rack that could be re-purposed.

Maybe even a clothes drying rack from Ikea?

I thought what might be a cute display would be to get a bunch of round boxes, and than circle the guitars around them, almost like a big cake.
