It's always smart to do a dry run when planning for a craft show, so I set up my table a few days ago and took some pictures to see how it looks. I liked how it turned out. Instead of using slate tiles which can get pretty heavy when carting them around, I covered some pieces of mdf board with a neutral linen fabric that matches my busts.
I plopped this big ol wooden box at the center to add some height and put my metal crates on top to hold the earring cards. I am definitely displaying less at this show. I am sticking to my guns and just displaying the collections but I am bringing some extra stuff in case things sell out. Oh, wouldn't that be nice!! We can only hope!
I couldn't sleep last night. Butterflies!! I always get the pre-show jitters. We set everything up last night. There is going to be over 100 vendors at the show. It's a pretty small space though, a small gymnasium at the Jewish Community center. I hope the traffic flows well! Set up was a cinch- just need to take the jewelry in this morning and get that set up and ready for the 11am opening time.
Wishing I had made more Harbinger tin pieces. Worse comes to worse I can always try to whip something up tonight after the show.
I love how the pieces look on that linen fabric. Nice and neat and clean, unfussy! And the color stands out so much better than on the slate tile. Another reason I did this was because the show is in this gym and we won't have any electricity to add our own lighting so I wanted people to be able to see things well, keeping everything neutral and light.
Wish me luck!! I hope it's a fast moving day with lots of traffic and friends to chat with! Hope you all have a great weekend!
