I learned a couple important things, like not to get the display too crowded, and that keeping money in my apron pocket would work better for me than in a metal money box. Also, I found that a regular size clip board will work better for keeping track of sales and the price list.

Our next show will be as large as this one was small - totally opposite!! My friend and I came up with a good idea for signage too. We want to make a "North Pole" out of pvc pipe: wind red tape or crepe paper around it, ball at the top. We will clamp it to the back of a table and attach a couple signs to it "Stocking Stuffers" "Gifts for Teachers" Gifts for Co-workers, Hair Dresser" etc. I'm excited about that, I think it will look cool and give us a wow factor.
I did this: craft fair set up 2010 by tat2girl - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers a few years ago. My spinner rack had no top and looked plain. I added this feather ball to the top of it, on a dowel, so it stood up higher. You could see it all over the room. I think it made more people wonder "what is that booth?" and come over to check it out.
Love your North Pole idea!
