  • Craft Fair display ideas

    Hi there i thought i would call on all your expertise
    I am booked for a craft fair in herne bay, Kent on the 22nd and 23rd November (eek!!!) and am trying to figure out how best to display my crafts.
    I have decided to get a couple of tiered cake stands to display my smaller crafts like my crochet flower brooches, keyrings and hair clips. I also have bought some big jam jars for my fabric scented strawberries.
    However i am stuck for ideas for how to display my handmade cards, crocheted make up bags and larger sewing crafts????
    I would love if we got a big brainstorm going on here

    Hi,
    For the handmade cards I'd cellophane them to protect them from the elements and sticky fingers and then section them according to occasion e.g. birthday, anniversary etc in small wicker baskets unless you have any kind of racking. I've laminated my section dividers with the heading at the top on both sides so I can also read it from behind the table.
    For everything else I'd just go for less is more and restock from behind or under the table.

        try: http://www.telfordsdirect.co.uk

        they have card board display stands for cards only £6.45, you can paint and direct as you want, very useful.

        I agree with stallfinder, less is more. Have a look out for some small shelves at car boot sales but free standing as these can give height for your larger items without being cluttered.

          I always put to empty boxes on my table with a bit of wood going across from one to the other and then put a table cloth over it so i have a bit of height at the back and i have had a lot of people say it looks better like that hope you get what i mean

              thanks everyone for the top tips!!!!
              I have bought a small pink glass cake stand and a 3 tier pink wire cake stand to display little bits in and iv papier mached a very big shoe box- it had knee high boots in it so its huge! and im going to paint that and display all my cards in it. iv got a big white sheet that il use as a table cloth and some gingham topped jam jars for scented fabric crafts so that they dont lose their scent.
              i have also been making some crochet bags with round handles, how would you display these??

                You can use zip top sandwich bags filled with air to pad out bags. they are easy to do once you get there and just store flat once you have finished or sold the bags. Then they should be easy to lay out or stack on your table.

                  That's a good idea - I put mine inside the stand I made for keyrings, in a similar way...

                      Thanks for that link, I'm doing a craft fair in November and wasn't sure how I was going to display my cards, I may order a couple of those, I like the fact you can decorate them too.

                        Two or three cork notice boards hinged together make good displays for jewellery as they stand up on their own. You can even link them together with stick on velcro strips. You can pin things on or use strips of ribbon to hang earrings from.
                        Oranges, apples or paperweights look good to display bracelets or a stuffed long glove with bracelets along, and upturned cereal/picnic bowls make substitute busts for necklaces. Real pearls look special draped over shells and chunks of gemstones always look nice scattered round the table.
                        Have a look through here as well.

                          Looking on Flickr might be a good idea for inspiration. There are a lot of images of craft fair displays that may help you in the future.
