Craft Fair Display Ideas

Make these next six weeks count! Holiday Craft Fairs and Shows are in full swing! Shoppers are back in spending mode, too! 

To learn more and for some daily inspirations, check out my Pins

Now, all you have to do is provide your customers with high quality products and a creative display. 

Using natural, vintage, rustic, and up cycled themes will definitely be popular this season. 

Use these baskets to showcase scarves, pillows, quilts, stuffed creatures, and much more! This style of display helps get your products closer to eye-level, and is very easily approached. 

Rather than hanging shorts on rings, hang scarves, tshirts, onesies, purses, or even necklaces! These simple curtain rings add a lot of visual interest to a display, and also help keep items at eye-level. 

As always, rustic, wooden crates and boxes are very pretty and durable. Don't overload them, but use them to showcase extra special items and separate items by size or color. 
Adding levels to your table is always a good idea, and often times, you can transport merchandise or supplies inside of a wooden box. 

What are some of your favorite ways to add interest to your craft fair booth or display?

I have also noticed that a lot of the clothes racks below, they use a beautiful theme or color scheme. It's visually just so lovely. 

This one, below, has been crafted like a tree...

Free Printable // Craft Fair Inventory Sheet

Craft Fair Season is upon us! Our local Carbondale, IL Farmer's Market will have it's second event of the season tomorrow.

In honor of this lovely weather and new creations, I created this document below. If you click on it, you should be able to view it in 8.5" x 11" and just print as many as you need!

How To Use: After printing the page(s), punch holes and insert into a 3-ring binder. The prettier the binder, the better, since your customers will also see this binder at times. You may also want to keep some looseleaf notebook paper or similar in the binder to record custom orders and customer/vendor info. Keep lots of business cards at hand too.

As you sell various items, write a quick description and price on the page provided below. This makes the sale process WAY easier and more organized! 

Happy Crafting...

March is National Craft Month!

Use this month to begin production for all of your upcoming fairs! The weather is finally getting better, and that can also inspire you to create new, beautiful things.

Here are a few tutorials to help get you inspired! Today I focused my crafts on girl-appropriate projects. I see tons of younger girls as well as teen girls shopping at shows these days! I'm so glad to see younger ladies understanding the importance of handmade items! Click the images to go to the pins and to learn more about the crafts below.

Customize Your Booth! Merchandising Your Products at Craft Fairs

Check out lots more craft fair and store displays on my Pinterest Board HERE

Leah Duncan packaged her lovely tea towels with her name! This is adorable and a very memorable way of packaging soft goods. You could use your own signature, or a handwriting font to create a similar effect. 

DIY Customize Your Hangers! This is an awesome idea! Wooden hangers look MUCH nicer than those plastic ones. They are uniform, and space your clothing and hanging products out very nicely. 

Giant Dwarf has created custom packaging for an assortment of items. The black and white photo of the girl's hair is awesome, and will match any color product. The coffee cups are super cute ways to show how those cozies are used.

I would imagine that this booth at Craft 2.0 has their name on each and every product. 

A sign at eye-level engages shoppers from a distance. These magnets are packaged so perfectly too! Displayed inside of an old suitcase that's retro-fitted with peg board...genius!

And here is an example of some modern earring packaging. I know it's easy to just attach them to a business card but hang tags / cardstock backing is a great alternative. 

That's all for now :) How do you merchandise your products and package them for a more cohesive look in your booth or shop?
