That is well done and should make for a great presentation. If I were a spectator at a craft show, I would be drawn to your booth. You have a great variety of items and all are displayed nicely.

Randy that is a nice display
There is many hours of work sitting on those shelves.

I must say you did a nice job painting the entire display. But I’m with you when it comes to painting! I hate it until it’s all done, then I look back and love how it came out. Your display came our great! I just had to zoom in and check out all of your items you made also. I got so involved I felt like I was window shopping! I like the white shelving also, I think it makes it easy to view your work. Good job Randy!

That set up looks like just the ticket for a bunch of successful sales buddy !
I think the white enhances the nice color of the pieces as well.
Good work Blackie & good luck !

Thanks all for the great comments, so glad all of my hard work paid off, unfortunately once again wrong venue, I’m still going through the learning stage of what battles to pick I’ll have it all sorted out soon.

Great set up. Customer is out of the elements and into your domain. He/she knows that they can buy it with their credit card. You are presenting “one of a kind” artist made items when only one item is shown ( sleighs or mugs), they can always ask “do you have others?” Looks like you have a sign. Do you have a logo?

Painting is up from sanding. LOL!

Comfortable “wood” chair to keep you off your feet, too.

I think Huff and Greg would approve. LOL!

Should create interest.

That’s a really Smart and Professional looking Set-up My Friend!
I like that it’s not closed in… People don’t have to come inside to see what you’re featuring, they can browse around your booth… Plus they can see your work, even from a distance!
Great Job on this and Good Luck on your future sales!

Painting is not so bad… It’s certainly not at the top of my “favorites list”, but it’s no where near the bottom!

Thanks Ken, Thomas, Mike and Charles.

Thomas, my logo is on the sign to the right and also I hand out business cards, one thing though that I keep forgetting to do as I’ve gotten into the habit of displaying my signs above the entrance instead of hanging them on the rear of the tent facing forward, they would be better seen hanging on the rear as when people enter they can’t see them, their eyes are focused on the boxes not the signs when they enter.

Randy, I thought your other set-up was most impressive and functional- but this one beats it by a mile. I agree with every comment here about attractiveness and functionality. I had to look again to realize just how ingenious your tear-down is. It all stores flat. Excellent.
