I saw this great idea at an outdoor craft sale and it's gonna help in so many ways!  I thought I'd share it with all of you guys too -

The seller had filled a bunch of small cloth sachet bags with marbles and was using them in a bunch of ways!  Here are some ideas -

- On the edges of the cloths so things stay in place when the wind blows
- Behind easels so they don't tip over
- Under items that would look good on an angle
- Stabilize things that may be top heavy or light enough to possibly get tipped over

I bet you can come up with even more!  I'll be taking a bunch this weekend to two outside farmer's markets and if I come up with more ideas, I'll post 'em!!!

Thanks for sharing! That's a very cost effective way of placing all my items next time I'm at a show!

OK, here's the pics of the marble/weights:

Now, here was something I didn't expect - the kids walking by saw the marbles and wanted to buy them!!  I am either going to bring extras that I can, in fact, sell or I'm going to make them less attractive.  heehee

I use a small rice dish filled w/ pretty marbles for my business cards at shows. It makes a beautiful display that compliments my items. (I work with a lot of asian fabrics)

Ha!  That is so funny the kids wanted to buy them!  Cheesy
You should definitely have a little bowl just for the kids!
