hi all...

I'm looking for some creative ideas for displaying my products at the show I go to. I'm sick of using baskets- I've started using driftwood to display the hemp necklaces (goes over well).

The problem is that I have a lot of little soaps to display. I am drawing a complete blank on what to do to get them off the table and into the public eye... Huh

HELP!

well, if you had say, 5 different kinds of soap, with a lot of each kind, you could take 5 boxes of different height and place them snug together. put them shortest to tallest, but stagar them across, then drape it with a pretty fabric to hide the boxes. place a nice arrangement of of each of the 5 soaps on the different levels (soap a goes on box 1, soap b on box 2 etc.) then keep the excess soap in seperate containers behind the display for you to hand out, or in front of the display for the customers to pick out.  hope that helps  Smiley

When I see handmade soaps, it makes me think of food. A lot of them look good enough to eat. Why not set up the soaps, grouped by color, and interspersed with some food.

For example, put all your orange soaps together in a basket, and place an orange or two around it.

If it's brown, put a chocolate bar in perhaps a silver tray or candydish.

Or if it's grey, put the grapes around it and in a goblet.

I found these great huge coffee cups- more like soup bowls with handles..in bright yellow with blue insides...I use them to display my coffee soap...

I think I might make some record bowls for the show this weekend....i can flip 'em upside down and stack soaps around the outside...

hmm..

i've been doing craft fairs for quite a few years & i'm always trying to think of something fun & new for display.  if you can, make different levels instead of having everything spread flat across the table.  you can use anything, like a stack of books, just drape it in nice fabrics.  i like to put my creatures on little shelves, but i don't think that'd work well for soaps!

I agree with the levels, especially since coffee and I share tables at sales around here, but I wanted to add to the food comment.

What about getting brightly colored platters like the ones at Target, (those are plastic) and displaying the soaps kinda like food? You could use different shaped plates and platters. Just an idea...

This week I'm going with 'tumbled over' baskets that will be 'spilling' out some of the soaps. On a second table I'm going to use boxes covered with fabric to give a little height. I picked up some nice wooden trays from the store that I'll use on the last table.

Not sure how it will turn out but hey..lol..at least I'm trying..

The table turned out great. Here are some photos of the groups of soaps:
