This is the first attempt to put a picture on this web site. I finally got my husband to do it for me. I still have a little work to do on this set up, especially signs of some sort and displaying samples of my cards. I have this set up in my living room at the moment to practice. The actually table I will be using at the craft fair will be 6ft. like this one but I think it will be somewhat deeper. Let me know what you all think and if you have any suggestions. Thanks, Carol

It is very very pretty. I really like the added heigth of the crates, and how you've displayed the paint cans (which are lovely by the way!). Good luck with everything, and please let us know how you did!

I think your set up is nice, too. Very neat.
My only suggestion would be to replace the plastic bins with something a little prettier - how about a solid colored photo box? They're pretty cheap, attractive and functional. You can store your cards in there between craft show.
Where DID you get those crates?

Wow! You have been working hard! I would definately stop too!
I think it looks great. I wonder what would happen if you spread the baskets out and grouped them with non-basketed (is that a word) items. Instead of 2 baskets together, put one plus free standing, colorful gift or two. I really like how you have coodinating items together, it is really easy on the eye to focus in.

First of all I got all my ideas for these items off this wonderful web site. I couldn't have done it with out you. The crates I bought a little at a time at Michaels and JoAnne Fabrics with the 40% coupon. This week you can't use the coupon at Michaels but they are on sale for $5.99. I already had one here at home that I use to store our winter mittens, hats, etc. I figured if I never do this craft fair again I can use these crates. I was going to string my sample cards across the front of the table but that doesn't seem to work. I have one of those fan things that you can put a few cards on. I might just use that. There will be another gal who is only selling cards at this same fair so I'm kind of concentrating on the other items. I really appreciate all you guys and inputs. I'm feeling a lot better about this whole thing now that I did a little practice run. Carol

This looks great! I really like the idea of the wooden crates. I agree about replacing the plastic boxes. You might cover a shoebox with craft paper and then you decorate it with cardstock and stamps.

Wonderful display!!! Very exciting to look at, makes me want to come in for a closer look!!! What do you put in the paint cans, and what do you price them at? I cant figure either of those questions out!!! Thanks for sharing!
