Craft Fair Countdown: Day 1

I know that inventory is the main ingredient to having a successful craft booth/table, but from all the reading I've been doing, a well-designed and appealing display is key to having people stop, look, and peruse all the pretties.  I'm trying hard to keep my costs down so while I'd love to cover my table with the finest textiles and fill my table with beautiful objet d'arts, I'm going to use my creative spirit to re-purpose some items I already have.


I love the look of light & dark so will have a white cloth to cover my table and adorn it with white and linen necklace and bracket displays. The necklaces and bracelets will add pops of color, and a copper standing mirror and soap dish will bring a rustic but elegant charm to my table.


I'm going to use the soap dish as my business card holder, and this antique copper bucket will be filled with some small and colorful coin purses that I knitted up (sorry, I forgot to take photos of those). Finally, I have a few Buddha statues that I'll place in and around my pieces as well as some skeins of yarn to fill out the spaces.  I'm not fully ready yet but I'm getting there!

  8. I think I have copper bucket envy ... but dare I say I'm seeing a dyeing vessel when I look at it.
