so....I've signed up for a billion and one fairs over the Christmas period and thoughts always turn to my table and genius ways in which to display my wares...
I've done a fair few of these now and always plan to be able to set up my stall in record time, all priced and labelled in advance but inevitably I'm always up all night labelling and still faffing around with my display as the first customers begin to trickle in.
This year I have two sets of shelf units, painted white, that I plan to string up some of my banners in between, but I think this calls for a spot of practise and some new labelling/packaging, just to give myself some more to do.
I'm hoping to have cute photos of my products 'in action' displayed on my stall too and will need to rope in the help of my two girlies and maybe even their friends... there could be a 'moustache photo montage' coming soon!
My favourite stall set up so far was for last Easter, I felt my table was fresh and bright but I do feel I need more stock to bulk it out a bit more, or is less more? I guess I need to find a happy balance so the table doesn't look too crammed or too empty!
O dear, I feel I have a lot to work on. In the meantime here's a pic of my own fave stall set (yes it's all about me!) and some others too that are ingenious, bright and inspiring...
my stall last Easter at the More Than A Mama fayre
the inspired use of a bright thread rack put to a good purpose as a stand for a whole motley crew of cute finger puppets for abbey*christine
a beautifully romantic vintage display from ittybittybirdy
using a chest of drawers to display monda loves' wonderful wares is a fabulous fun idea
and finally I love the use of these old suitcases in Lockette's display.
So, feeling inspired I'm off to do some more thinking and trawling through flickr pics for stall inspiration....
do you use any every day objects in your stall displays? I'd love to hear your ideas...
Have a happy Tuesday, I'm off to put another jumper on, brrrrrr, it's chilly at home today.
