hi all,
when i do my craft fairs i use card stand to display my cards but after reading how other people display there cards i am thinking mine mite look a little miss match!
ill explain..............
i have one black fold away stand that i use on my table, one small green spinning stand that i put on a box to raise nr the table then i have a big silver spinning card stand that stands other side of table ....
i also use baskets and things as well .....
but im just concerned that people who see my stall may think i have just thrown my table together.
should i pass on the 2 spinning stands and just use the fold away one and baskets? ?????? i just dont know what to do for the best the spinning stands are great as they allow me to display more cards.......anyone got any ideas of how i can make my table look better?
sorry for waffling on!!!!

Sounds to me like you're making fantastic use of your space so don't fret too much. I'm sure browsers/customers appreciate the fact the spinners show all your cards off easily and will be drawn to the cards rather than notice any mis-matched displays.:)

Perhaps if you're concerned about it you could have each type of display stand dedicated to a paticular theme, ie all xmas cards on one spinner, birthdays on another etc.

just an idea but you could use some of the metal spray paint to make all the stands match !!!

You could also paint all the basket the same colour so they match too .. i paint mine cream and it has made a big difference !!

I agree with nattynetty. I think customers shop for cards by themes, I do anyway! In a card shop I go straight to the area I need to and bypass everything else!

People ight not even notice the difference in stands.

I only use baskets but I've laminated dividers so all my cards are themed in sections. I do think stands look more impressive especially if you're doing big events but I've never had any as I've only done small local fairs/groups.
I don't think anyone would notice if your stands didn't match although the spray painting is a good idea.
