My new display


About this design:

I wanted a really unique look for my shows, something that would really stand out. So I used an antique suitcase, crates, vases, antique doilies, books, a crate my husband made from barn wood that is 130 years old, wire spools, unique items from home goods stores, etc.

    You’ve done a great job of making your booth stand out. I have to tell you – I especially like the wire wheel – it brings back memories of my poor college days, when most of my apartment was furnished with wire wheels that I would roll home.
    Is your wheel on a rotating base, like a lazy susan? (Or maybe that wouldn’t fit with your display.)

    Sure love the looks of your display. I have a question? Do you put all your items out or just some. I am new to the show aspect and did not want things to look overwhelming if I put everything out.thanks!

    Rocky – I don’t put everything out. I try to do a variety of styles and colors. When something sells I either replace it with another item or rearrange things a little. I’ve even had a few customers come back behind the booth and look through my case drawers. :) If you can get most of your items up off the table…elevated at different levels, I personally think it is more pleasing to the eye. Good luck at your shows.
