Recently I had a two-hour notice to set up for some selling of jewelry at a sophisticated gallery show.
It was not a “selling show,” so I needed to be fairly low key, and my retail display had to come up and down super fast and easy.
This is what I did, and it was super easy and cost me nothing.
I used a common wooden folding snack table (basement junk find), a pretty cloth placemat, and then I pulled displays parts from my usual 6 foot table set up:
- cork board (thrift store find spray painted black), held up with a large metal easel type plate stand
- push pins to hold earring cards and necklaces
- my spinning necklace holder
- a pretty paper coiled artisan basket for the bracelets.
I then put a commercial hand form with one of the bracelets on it, along with a hand lettered sign.
Then I added my business cards in a holder.
This was so quick . . . I set up a practice run in my kitchen.
Easy transport in some shopping bags!
A great way represent yourself, in a 16″ x 12″ space!
When there is no “real” booth space . . . never pass up an opportunity to represent your product and your personality with the public.
And when there is little space . . . go vertical.
