Hello All,

After a few months of selling our wares through ebay, we are now venturing to our first craft fair.  Most of our items are brooches & badges, do you have any ideas of how to display them (without the display looking too flat?).  If this topic is already covered else where - i apologise!

Thank you

I would simply cover pieces of board or cardboard with fabric and make a portrait stander at the back or simply raise them on one end by placing boxes (f.e. the containers you transport your stuff in) under them.

I travel by public transport and my problem is everything has to fit in two suitcases, that's all I can and will carry. So instead of the heavy boards for my upcoming fair I'm going to make some in cardboard that will just fit in my Samsonite. I also always bring some clothing with me to display a few brooches on. Gives people an idea of how such a brooch would look on a jacket, blouse or sweater and it makes nice table filling if I end up with too much open space. I can also hang them up on hangers on the side of my stand. Sometimes this results in selling the clothing instead of the brooch... ha ha, I use curb found second hand clothing, but really nice pieces Cheesy
Also I often make a cloths line above my stand to hang necklaces on, but I'm also thinking of pinning a square piece of cloth from it with brooches pinned on or earrings stuck in.

Hope you have a good fair!

I had button tags made by KittyCrossbones http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/shopkittycrossbones which I punched two holes in and then put my pins through the holes so the image faced the front of the designed card. Then I placed the tags standing upright in a record bowl (or five haha), sorted by type. I have 1" kawaii buttons, 1.25" vintage design buttons, 1.25" geekery...Each bowl has a price and label and people can sort through. I like this method but I wish I had a different method. In all honesty, I like the magnet idea. Strips of strong magnets behind the pinned cards is a great idea. =)
