Fall Art Fair 2012

I ordered some wooden stacking trays from Nilecorp.com (click HERE) to display my jewelry.  Small wooden slats were glued to the inside top to accommodate small cup hooks and sawtooth hangers were nailed to the back.  I received many compliments on the clean design that uniquely showcased each individual piece.
I had a great location at the entrance of the art fair and arranged my booth walls so it had two entrances/exists.  With plenty of room to shop, I was fortunate to sell out of the polymer clay pieces early in the day.
 Lots of friends stopped by to give me support and that really meant a lot to me.
 The weather was beautiful and the crowds were great.  So now I have 3-1/2 months to get ready for the Spring Fair in March.

Thanks you ladies. I loved the boxes too. They were just different enough to catch a person's eye and draw them in.

I love it. Now can you tell us where you got the metal walls? I want to build walls in my booth.

Christina, thank you. I purchased them from http://www.graphicdisplaysystems.com (Graphic Display Systems). They make a solid 6' panel or one that comes in two parts. I purchase the one that comes in two parts. I can carry them easily and store them easily as opposed to the 6' panel. They were worth every penny. They are sturdy and last forever under normal use. I couldn't be happier with mine. Check my Pinterest board (on my sidebar..the little chef) and go to "BOOTH AND DISPLAY" for a lot of useful ideas. I keep a "My Booth" board for me to keep a yearly record of my booth. Thanks again for commenting. -Marlene
