The images below are a selection from the various craft fairs I’ve had stalls at over the past few years. They’re mostly a record for me to see how my stock and layout changes over time and for anyone else wanting to get a few ideas for stall layouts … or maybe what ‘not’ to do! Any hints or tips you might have to pass on would be appreciated too, so all comments welcome… Thank you 🙂

I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive ways of making things look better or more interesting and anything that will help me set up quickly. Here are a few of my  favourites:

Place Card crocodile clips for holding price tags. I have about a dozen and a pack of cards with names and prices that I can place near the relevant items.

A set of old plywood drawers that a friend gave to me. I painted them cream and use the drawers to transport stock in and then for display purposes I take the drawers out and use the wooden shell for ‘Door Mice’, stack the individual drawers (similar to a house of cards) and display creatures in and on them. It looks quite effective and brings a bit of height to the stall too.

Tiered cake stands – really useful for bringing a bit of height to the layout whilst letting me display more stock than if it was all on one level.
