For the fellow crafters who do clothing, I was wondering, what do you do to put mirrors in your displays? I have a small table top mirror that works fine for hats, but I think I need something full length as well. The trouble is I'd like something that looks nice, but is economical, and preferably doesn't weigh a ton.

Also, if anyone has interesting ideas for displaying clothing, I'd love to hear what you do. Up to now, I'd been using grid-wall panels and accessories, but I'm thinking of changing that.

Thanks in advance for your help.

In a couple of weeks I'll be setting up at a local craft fair/DIY expo for the second time.  I haven't really thought about any sort of mirrors for some reason.  I don't know why it never even crossed my mind.  Last time I brought a garment rack, which I set up next to the table (we were on the end of a row), and I also had a duct-tape dressform that I displayed on the table itself with a shirt on it.  Since then I've gotten a real dressform, so I might actually bring that with me to display near/in front of the table.  I'm also going to do the garment rack again, obviously, as I think that's the best way to display the clothing I make.

Last time one girl wanted to try on a dress before she bought it, so I let her go to the bathroom to try it on.  I was kind of nervous about whether she would come back or not even though she and her mom seemed pretty trustworthy.  This time I think I might ask to hold an ID if someone wants to bring an article of clothing to the bathroom to try it on.
