Tips For Setting Up A Craft Show Booth
This Saturday we will have our Stuff From Trees booth at the Albia Restoration Days celebration. We're so excited to share our God-given talents with our community and spend a great day with other crafters and artists.
We set up our booth in the craft room so we could see exactly what inventory we had. This makes updating our inventory log incredibly simple, and as we check it off the list we can pack it up. It also helps us see what we need more of, if anything needs new prices and what we really want to take with us.
Visual interest is especially important when setting up a booth. We use a wooden crate on each table and then mix in other tall pieces - like the log chairs pictured here - to shake things up a bit. The theme of Restoration Days this year is the Wild, Wild West, so the cowboy items we have are displayed at the front of the booth to draw people in as the walk by.
You'll find just a portion of each type of item on each table, which keeps customers looking at every table. In other words, the journals aren't all in one place on one table. There is a basket of cards on each table as well, and the wood-burned kitchen tools can be found at the front and the back of the booth.
We hope you'll be able to come visit our booth on Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. We'll have a special coupon for anyone who makes a purchase at the show, and you'll get to meet our Great Dane Molly, the Stuff From Trees mascot. Plus you'll find paper crafts and wood gifts for everyone - and maybe a little something for yourself! We'll see you there.
