country living fair austin
quick little post
to show you my
booth at the fair
there was a little snaffoo
on my booth location
although i planned for a 10 x 10 spot
i ended up with a double booth
quite by accident
i was unprepared for that much space,
but it just turned out nice, light
i recently bought this great antique
iron crib to use as a display
the springs worked perfectly for my earring cards
and the rail for my new religious necklaces
i brought my tent frame since i usually dont do indoor shows
and dont have any 'pipe and drape' .
i bought curtains to hang from my frame
and tulle to hang as a ceiling..
it turned out very cozy..
(but with the extra booth,
i had to rent
pipe and drape anyway !)
my paint can displays were getting old
so i made new ones for this season
covered perfectly with
some lace i found at the flea
already aged to perfection !
i had enough space to use my new
print display racks
that i showed you months back
which i purchased at the 're-store'
brand new in the box !!
perfection for my matted prints !
all in all it wasnt too bad
considering i only brought enough for a 10 x 10
it turned out to be a very lucky
as it was very light were i was,
and many sections of the barn
however, i was in the middle row
and lots of people said they 'missed' me..
they need to tweak the layout a bit for next year !
most customers probably dont realize how much we
as vendors agonize about our booths
we work really hard to come up with great displays
not only to attract people,
but to give an overall great ascetic to the show
especially a show like county living !
it's not always easy...10 x 10 is a really hard space to set up in
and allow for customers to walk around
(especially with strollers !)
and we try to be somewhat different form everyone else,
and different from ourselves the year before..
not always so easy !
the pink ruffles are my trademark
when you see them
you know it's me...
stop by and say hello !!!
