Craft Show Display Tips and Must-Haves

Apr 23, 2010

After attending dozens of craft fairs, I’ve picked up some tips for creative displays. Read on to learn from my experiences selling in person and attending shows on the indie craft fair circuit.

Think of your booth as a pop-up flagship store.

My biggest mistake was prioritizing a display that was easy — easy to set up, easy to carry, etc. Craft shows are hard, but they only last a day or two, so put in the extra work and you’ll make up for it in impact.

 

Something’s Hiding in Here at Renegade Craft Fair

Don’t go overboard — keep it simple.

Have a peek at Shauna and Stephen of Something’s Hiding in Here‘s display above, not a shade of turquoise out of place. These two are pros! There’s something inviting about the neat orderliness of their booth. Try not to overwhelm your craft show shoppers with too many tchotchkes (or too much work!). A few vintage pieces to add for je ne sais quoi is all you need.

Vary the height of your display.

This will allow your booth to be seen from farther away, and will let more than one or two browsers come by and shop at the same time.

Plan it out beforehand.

Pop your tent up in your backyard, pull out folding tables and set up your entire display. What can you take further? What should you take away? Will your booth stand out next to Your Secret Admiral‘s or Rebound Designs’, shown above?

Zooguu’s displays, made by Michael Neil Jacobsen , but her products on display. Note the nice big “we take credit cards” sign.

Get rid of the table.

I know that’s not always a practical solution, but brainstorming ways you can set up your booth can help you in the long run (even if you do end up with a tabletop display).

Lastly, don’t take your booth too seriously.

Adding a quirky touch can help strike up conversations with a passersby.

The very most important part of any booth, however, is a big smile! So remember to have fun.

    I use inexpensive wicker baskets of different shapes and sizes and remnants of material that I drape around the baskets. Good to have things at different levels to bring depth to your display.

    Gorgeous booths! I did my first wedding show last month. Each vendor was limited to one round table-top display, and I had two books of wedding invitation samples (translation: not too visually interesting from afar!). To spice up my display, I used some fun little green fuzzy tree place card holders set at different heights (on stacks of my business cards and brochures) with cards sticking out. It was a tiny touch but gave my table so much more dimension. But *these* booths...Wow! They give me great inspiration for my next show!

    I like the tips, thanks! I find that I am NEVER happy with my booth, though I invent new things and methods and change my booth for every show I do. I want to figure it out! There is another booth group on Flickr, though it is smaller. It needs members and photos! You can join, add, share and comment here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/myboothspace/ (I'm a bit sad that "Show Me Your Booths" didn't come up in my search results on Flickr months and months ago when I tried looking for a booth space pool.. I had no idea it existed..)

    tigersanddragons said 6 years ago

    Tips: Think about how you are going to organize your extra stock, and gift boxes, tissue, etc. so they are quickly and easily accessible. We store our extra jewellery pieces in divided plastic snap boxes from the Fishing area at the hardware store. Also we put a tiny folding table under the main table, so boxes, bags and wrapping material are easily within reach without us having to stick our heads under the tablecloth to search for things. We can keep our eyes on our wares.

    Thanks so much for these great tips! We here at Bob's Brass are just gearing up for our first show of the season and this blog was so timely! :) Another reminder? If you are fair skinned, like I am, don't forget your sunblock! Even if your booth is shaded, when you leave to check out other booths, you can forget the SPF! Stay safe, my fellow craft showers!

    VintageHoneysuckle said 6 years ago

    I agree, keep your booth attractive and functional, even fun and quirky, but don't let it overpower your products. Also, decide before-hand if you want to sell props when asked. Several years ago I was on break and the person watching my booth sold one of my props for a few dollars ~ it was a vintage hand-hammered copper pot that was part of my collection! :(

    great tips danielle! In addition to looking good, make sure too that you are prepared for mother nature, wind is the enemy at craft shows! make sure all of your displays are sturdy & can stand up to gusts of wind! I do a weekly market and this mornings wind caused several vendors a lot of damage today.

I want both - attractive and functional. Thanks for the tips.

  • CoquetteBath

    CoquetteBath said 6 years ago

    I always say to 'think cubic' you pay for square footage on the floor, but go into the air. I do not do outside shows due to heat, moisture etc (I sell soap and having a sale in a downpour isn't fun (been there, done that)) so it is inside only for me. But these same tips do translate well.

    If you are traveling by air and need to fit a great display (and inexpensive) into your suitcase, I found a really nice solution: Gershel Brothers cardboard risers. They are 2 ft wide sections and only $20 for 4 sections. They fit into large rectangle bag. They come in plain white as shown, but I have added craft trims, scrapbooking stickers and even flags to dress them up. they are easy to put up and take down and mine have lasted more than 10 shows. Here's the link: http://www.gershelbros.com/cgi-gershelbros/sb/productsearch.cgi?storeid=*1c5d4ae680ef71ad5226464abbac24e5 Good luck at your next show!

    I've learned after a few years of doing shows that even if I don't make a dollar, I get great inspiration from the other vendors! It amazes (and saddens) me to see just how much I'm slacking. The creativity is here, and I am now puting it to use :) These ideas are great!

    Those are some great display ideas. A lot of our jewelry maker customers have some really creative ideas on displaying their wares. And not forgetting a custom table cover with your logo and pictures of your products.http://www.table-cover.com/

    I've been looking at racks and display equipment on line. I finally found a place near me that seems reasonable. Investing in a big craft fair really does take months of work. Whew! I'm glad for the Etsy advice on the other things.

    Thanks, I've decided to always leave a word from one of my books: It only takes a second to inquire of your name, It only takes a moment if our love song is the same, It only takes an hour for feelings to ignite, It only takes a lifetime, if we start our lives tonight! I write and publish books, including poetry. Stop by my page.

    Thanks for the Ideas! I'm still figuring out to have displays that match with my accessories. Hard to find the simple but match one .

    Jeanette Griebel from VintageDaisyStudio said 2 years ago

    Great tips! I've done one flea market but no crafts fairs. The fees for the fairs are just to expensive. For the amount of items I could bring to sell the price isn't justifiable. I noticed this article is a few years old, and plans on updating it too include new tech and sites etc
