I was inspired while antiquing on vacation. My hubby’s aunt has a booth at a lovely antique shop outside of Portsmouth, NH and it really inspired me.
I’ve got a running list of props on my iPhone that I’d like for my booth. As I come up with ideas I type them into Evernote. I don’t get to go antiquing very often, so this a great help!
I’ve been on the hunt for a way to display my hair clips and brooches. The table in my booth was starting to get pretty crowded with headbands, key chains, clutches, coffee cozies, etc.
My first idea was to make a 3 tier stand out of vintage metal pie plates and dowels, but that would take up table space too. It also wouldn’t hold very many items.
Then I saw some vintage glass canisters/cookie jars that would look really cool filled with my fabric hair clips and brooches. These would also take up a lot of space on the table, may break during transport and don’t leave the product easily accessible.
I spotted a pair of vintage window screens on the way out of the shop and my wheels started turning. I had seen a jewelry artist use them to hang pieces in her tent. Why couldn’t I do a similar thing for my wares? My plan is to screw 2 eyehooks into the top and use chains to hang them from the tent frame. I don’t have to build anything, it won’t take up any valuable table space and it will fill up the dead space in my booth.
Come see me!
Eeeek, craft show season is fast approaching! I have two 2-day shows coming up in September. I’ve never done a 2-day show before, so I am extra nervous and excited.
I purchased an EZ Up 10′ x 10′ tent. Next up on my list is to get a hitch installed on my car. My hubby has a small trailer that I’m going to use to transport my goods. I also have to get tent weights. Other than that I am all set other than sewing non-stop of course!
Come see me at:
