Inexpensive Risers

by Kathi Ader.

When I first began doing craft shows, I needed an economical way of adding height to my display. I went to a local store and found melamine shoe racks for $12.00 each.

Front view of shoe rack jewelry display risers.

I love them so much that I still use them! I added a board to the front of some and moved the shelf to the bottom on others to create different looks and uses. They’re also great to use behind the table for hiding bags, tags etc.

Kathi’s booth is very elegant, and yet has a warm and inviting appearance. Her lovely design work and decor theme flow together so nicely.

Great idea with the shoe racks!

Awesome Booth Set Up

Your booth set up looks so awesome that I copied your photos. I usually have less than an hour to set up for a private jewelry show, but I’m sure I can incorporate some of your ideas to improve the way mine looks. Thanks for the suggestion!

Great looking display, but what kind of store sells this stuff? I’m not a shopper, so it would probably take me a long time to find something like this unless I had some guidance as to type of store that might carry it.

First of all, thank you for all your kind comments (and the last extremely exhuberant one).
I didn’t initially know how to answer questions that someone had but decided to just add my own comment.
I purchased these at different places (but watched for when they were on sale to get the best price) I bought these at Target, Walmart and Kmart and as far as I know they are still available. I also started adding the small halogen lights inside to highlite my favorite desings.


Looking at your website
