Default Decorating a Booth for Craft Fair:

Does anyone have an eye-catching way of decorating a booth for a craft fair? (I don't have SU's kit) I'll be selling cards, tiles, etc. and want it to look neat. Pictures would be REALLY awesome

Don't have pictures but be creative. Use shutters to display your cards, or hang them with clothespins from a tree or string, I do a lot of stacking then cover with fabric, I also use shelves on my tables. If you have a covered booth then hang stuff from the rafters in fun bags. Experiment. I always preset in the garage and its amazing where you can find your inspiration!

I used to use navy blue sheets (cheap from Wal-Mart!) and then cover the table with a roll of Kraft paper bought at the office supply store. (Used for mailing, so you find it in the mailing section.) I also used the sheet and a nice old quilt to give the table a country feel.

You don't need the SU kit if you're selling cards - matter of fact, in talking with SU, if you are selling cards at a craft fair you are supposed to just do it as you - not representing yourself as a Stampin' Up demonstrator. My upline3 (upline cubed - my upline's upline's upline) explained to me at lunch the other day that it is because you don't want someone that isn't a good card maker representing themselves as SU because it can give SU a bad name, dilutes the brand, etc. - especially if they use non-SU stuff in what they make. I confirmed this with the demo hotline too, but you might want to also just to be sure. It's such a gray line that I'm still confused about it!

Default rules

here are the rules for what you can and can't do for being a crafter or being a demo... there are strict rules for selling handmade items.
you can't sell items and be there as a demo...
this was approved by my upline's SAM but still call DS if you will be going as a demo to get it all approved.

pm me if you have any questions!

I just had a craft fair table set up and I agree with the first post about being creative. I am sorry that I do not have pictures to show. The table clothes were provided for us so that all the tables of other products would match. I also bought Christmas fabric with small snowflakes and gold shimmery fabric to drape over boxes to add height to my display. I was showing mostly Christmas products so I laid out a variety of cards, journals etc. I also used black foam core board from Office Depot and stuck cards on with that tacky stick stuff from Walmart. The cards stayed on well and it looked very professional. I had made some of the glitter ornaments and had them hanging on holders from Michaels which drew a lot of attention. I was pleased with my presentation of the table and was not representing Stampin' Up. I hope I helped you out. Good luck!
