This is one booth set up I used for an 8′ table at an indoor show. On the right side, I use paper ream boxes I’ve carried things in as risers.
I put necklace stands on that level and multi-necklace acrylic stands on the table. The multi-necklace stands can be loaded at home and put in plastic bags. I put like items together by colors or types of necklaces.
In the center, I put items that I’m having a sale on, along with my Newsletter signup sheet to win the turquoise gemstone bracelet. That way, I can talk to people and show them items.
I’m too short to stand behind the necklaces and like a clear path to people to hand them my cards and take care of their purchases.
On the far left, I use a black mesh candle holder for my earring cards that are clipped to the holder. This can be preloaded at home before the show and wrapped.
It takes less time for set up that way. I’ve found that people prefer to have 1 necklace on a display, but I’m doing outdoor shows and the single displays that I have are the easel type and they blow over too quickly. I do use them for indoor shows.
