It is such a luxury to have one dedicated, clear, flat surface to pack outgoing orders and to unpack supply orders on.
I raised the table up to waist level with inexpensive bed risers. I placed small pieces of non-slip mat in the top of the bed risers to keep them from sliding around.
When I do a show I use this table and the bed risers so it does double duty then. It’s a 5 ft folding table so it’s easy to take with me.
On the table I keep a paper cutter to trim down the shipping labels / postage that I print off of my computer to fit on my small jewelry packages.
I also have a postage meter, some customs slips for International orders, business cards, packaging tape and a few other supplies.
On the metal shelf unit to the right I keep all of my tissue paper, boxes, padded envelopes, jewelry boxes, pouches and everything else I need for shipping.
Inventory fits underneath so it’s handy to ship as well as some boxes that are packed with lights, tablecloths and display items for shows.
We tend to move a lot for my husband’s job so I’ve never bothered to invest in permanent office or studio furniture.
This will have to do until my husband retires and we stop moving. It is very functional.
I hope you enjoyed the mini tour.

Shipping and Receiving Area
This is such a gorgeous work area, Sue! I love the quilt on the wall – a lovely homespun touch, and I imagine it helps soften the sound in the room too.
What a great idea to have a space specifically for processing incoming and outgoing packages. I bet it cuts your time tremendously when it comes to dealing with those tasks!
You can even do your personal gift-wrapping there. 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful setup and ideas, Sue!
