Part of the 'showing' at craft shows are the displays. How you set up your items in your booth. This has been (and probably always will be) a process for me. My first show was a little chaotic. Second was a little better, but not completely to my liking. This next one I hope to be a LOT better. I have some great ideas on how to show some of my products that I personally have never seen at a show. It's fun, fitting, and creative.
The idea is to display my flower/plant items in terra cotta pots as you see in the photo. Terra cotta pots act like slate and will allow you to write on it with chalk. I had thought of this idea a couple years ago for the garden. It's a cute way to label your garden pots, until it rains! So, I went and found my chalk pencil and started to doodle on the pots.
Each pot displays the name of the item and the price. I will put the product inside making it seem like these flower inspired items were planted in the pot. Pretty cool, huh? I think it makes the preparation more efficient and adequately displays the price for buyers to see. If done right, it's also quite attractive. I have a feeling people will be commenting on these at the show and hopefully hook a sale!
I also plan to make some pots for my flowered headbands and the leaf washcloths.
I'll let you know how these worked for my show display. If they're a hit, I think I'll spray the pot with a sealer to keep the chalk from wiping off.
