Craft Fair display


About this design:

This is my very colorful jewelry display at a local craft fair/yard sale. The black dress forms are my earring racks, which I LOVE! I like to make my table colorful and fun, so it catches the eye. I do use a standard black velvet tablecloth for my inside events, but when I'm outside, I love to use bright fresh colors. My table displays, however, do stay the same when I'm inside, so I still have my signature fun, bright colors indoors. On this day, I happened to have a very small table, so things might look a little squished.

    Erin, the table looks great…the dress forms are great! I love your idea of taking old jewelry and making new, however I read your profile, you might want to adjust the prices up a bit on line adn see if you get any takers. You can always go lower if need be

    Thank you everybody!
    It wasn’t really a good day (it rained a little ways into the day) :( And there were a lot of jewelry designers there, it wasn’t organized very well.

    To Elaine aka Belly Chick: the dressforms are from pier 1. They are about $20.00 each, but hold so many earrings! I think I have around 200 pairs of errings for sale at one time, so they hold quite a bit, it just depends on how long your earrings are.

    To Chicky Suz aka Susan Z: I have been trying different prices on Etsy. Not much luck with sales because there is so much jewelry for sale on etsy. I have been listing earrings for around $10 a pair, bracelets for around $15 each, and necklaces from $20-$30 each. I also sell vintage jewelry I come across on my adventures through flea markets.

    I would like some feedback on my etsy shop though, if anyone is willing to do it. The address is http://www.antiquetochic.etsy.com, Thank you!
