Craft Show Prep: Booth Set Up

The day finally came for the Simple Treasures Craft Boutique. We gathered all of the booth supplies and product, loaded it on the trailer, drove it into the boutique location, assembled the booth and staged the product. By the end of the night we were all exhausted.

Matt made a frame for the booth out of 2"x2"s. He also built this hefty work table out of 2x4's and plywood. The frame is anchored with screws to this table.

For the walls, I decided to go cheap... tablecloths from Dollar Tree. We stapled them to the 2x2 booth frame. Tape was also involved.

My shop sign has picture hooks on the back and it hung like a picture on two boards screwed to the table.

Booth shot... The cute rug is from Ikea and only cost me $20

Another booth shot...

Here is the purse tree we made with all the owl bags hanging from the branches.

We also made a headboard bench to display my pillows. (Tutorial coming soon)

A good way to drum up more business is to provide business cards for potential buyers. I used a pumpkin basket I had to hold the cards. I made a sign and put it in a cheap Ikea frame.

Glittered Boo letters (tutorial coming soon)

Yet again, another product shot...

Pillows galore....

This was a fun experience! I sold a lot of stuff and gained a lot of knowledge. As you can see I have some tutorials coming up, so stay tuned for those!
