Trying to Get Creative with my Displays...

My friend Candace of Chicky Girls Hair Bows invited me to showcase my crafts with her at a recent play-date meetup of her Mom's group. I jumped at the chance, thinking it would be a good way to get some local exposure and hopefully a few sales. It also gave me the opportunity to design some sort of display for all my products. My mom had an old bi-fold shutter door lying around, so I had my hubby cut it in half to make a display for my tins. I spray painted it and painted "Embellished Bayou" across the top of one. Here's how the door looked before:

I had a 6 foot table and a card table to work with. In the future I think I will need at least one more table so everything doesn't look so cluttered. Here's how the displays turned out:

I'll also need a table cloth for the card table, more risers (I just used a couple boxes this time) and a cute holder for my business cards.

Overall, I think it turned out nice. And I got a couple orders for the larger frames....which I can't take credit for since they were my best friend's design! I thought I would have a little more interest in the painted tins, but no takers so far! A couple moms who are expecting said they may order one of the triple tins for their nursery, so hopefully I'll get more orders in the future. If business picks up, I am considering doing a local craft show this fall, so this was a good "trial run". If anyone has any craft show tips, feel free to post them in the comments!

  1. I think your tins are so pretty! You are totally on the right track display wise. The bifold door looks great!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you have to say!
