I've been advertising the vintage and craft shows I've been involved in this past summer and fall at the end of these posts. So I thought that I'd show you a few pictures of my displays. I know many of you also do shows, and while I'm far from an expert, I think I've gotten better at staging the set ups through the years.
One thing I always do is keep on tweaking the set up. To make it easier and to give height to my booth, I now use vintage apple crates. Product is stored in the crates, they stack neatly in the trailer and they make great shelves. My in-laws used to be in the moving truck business so I was able to acquire a large stack of furniture pads. Every piece of furniture that goes in the trailer or car is wrapped so that I have no nasty chips or scratches surprising me at a show.
I've adjusted my table coverings and booth accents. I love the polyester fitted table cloths. Wrinkles fall out and they wash up wonderfully. I got mine from Amazon. I've added burlap pieces over the black table clothes to pull in the color of the crates.
I use a ladder to display my painted signs.
I use a small step ladder to not only help me reach tall things but as a great way to display trays!
Every show sets up a bit different and sometimes I'll use all my display pieces and sometimes just a few. It's nice to have different options! Next time you attend a show, check out what the vendors use as display pieces. You might have something in your home just waiting to be used!
