Here are some pix of a craft show I did in Ottawa 2 weekends ago. They’ll give you some idea of the variety of things I turn, plus a look at how I set up my display (actually my wife handles the displays, I just put things out where I’m told :-)

Very nice set up. A bunch of fantastic turnings. Looks like you have things in all price ranges too. Helps to have a variety of items and prices.

Thanks for posting. Keep it up.

Nice display set up Ken. Great range of turnings. The guy in the photo is not going to get his
hands out of his pockets though.

Now I am depressed! Your display is great, I would love to show some of my stuff, but I would not have enough to fill a single rack of your wonderful display…....

Hi Hacksaw007,
What you see is my booth after about 13 years of evolution. When I first started out, I had a very limited selection. After each show I would add something new, constantly trying to ensure I had something for everyone (more accurately: something for every price range). After each show you’ll have some stuff left over so preparation for the next show is a little bit easier. Go for a professional presentation: table cloths, good lighting, printed price cards, raised display or shelves. Good luck.

Interesting that you had to bring your own lighting. I like the elevated display shelves; that is definitely a booth I’d head over to see at a show. Nice display; thanks for showing it.
