 Hope this helps!!

Very helpful! Thanks so much! For some reason I just couldn't visualize how the bottom would stand.  Smiley   And the diagram is very helpful since (normally) I'm a visual person.

Thanks for all of the wonderful ideas and pictures. I just started selling my wares at the local Farmer's Market here in Bellingham, Washington and all of the fabulous advice and info I found here on craftster really helped me to be totally prepared! Here are some pics of the display I came up with.

I used a 4 foot folding table covered with an old seventies table cloth and a 5 foot ladder with shelves placed across the steps. It is really sturdy and very easy to set-up and take down.

I LOVEthe ladder idea!! I never would have thought to use that! Good one!

I may have to incorporate that ladder idea into my set-ups!  I LOVE the color of it.

Here are some from my second show.  I share booth space with a friend that sells jewelry, I do purses and accessories. 

Here is the 8x10 booth:

Here's my side showing my purse-rack.  Behind that is a clothes rack for fabric for custome orders.  Suprisingly, I get more custom orders than I outright sell purses:

And here is my table detail.  Most things either have tags attached describing how to use the product, or there is a tent card with description.  Some things, like my diaper bag and cosmetic case, have props in them, like a sippy cup and diapers to show the pockets are big enough for those items, and a makeup brush and bronzer to quickly show it's a cosmetic case.

Here is my friends side.  I have more detailed pics if anyone wants to see them, but I think this one shows everything pretty well.

What a great informative thread! I have my first craft fair next Sunday. Boy am I nervous - and excited. I am not even at home this week so I am crafting here(my mother's house -I have to be here to nurse her after surgery) and dh is making a display at home. Hopefully! I emailed him this thread to give him ideas. A table(6ftx2ft) will be supplied.

I don't know how busy it will be - I just want to do it and get it over with and get the experience. I sell jewellery by the way.

My neighborhood had a little craft fair as part of their Fall Harvest Festival and here is my humble set up....

Two tables and a ladder (a guy walked by just as I snapped the picture he is in front of the ladder!)
I used table cloths in fall colors because it was a fall harvest festival.

That's my hubby in the background being goofy!  Roll Eyes

The ladder:
This was a GREAT idea!
I put fancy bulletin boards and a cookie sheet of magnets on it.

Table shots:

I made some resin Christmas ornaments and displayed them on a silver mini tree.

I got so many great ideas for set up by reading this thread that I had to post pictures!

I sold my stuff for the first time this past weekend. It wasn't really a fair or bazaar, but my friend's salon was having a customer appreciation day. They were doing makeup and hair demonstrations and there was a DJ and food. There weren't a lot of people  there to shop, but none the less, I made $47. I was happy that I just made back my table fee. There was 1 other girl selling bags, but they were store bought bags that she embroidered.

I wasn't sure about my bag set up but it worked until I can get something better and more bags. This set up of a clothes rack with bungee cord and clothes pins were perfectly fine for the size of the show.

My entire set up.

My bags

My table.. too small, but okay for my first time... hairbow holders, make up pouches, stationary...
