Upcoming Show Display Montereau

About this design:

Okay, ladies, I need your help! I have a special show fri. at a 5 star adult retirement center. I was Invited! There will only be 20 vendors. I did a practice setup to see what I might do.(please forgive all blurriness and overexposure. Plus my banner will NOT be rumpled up!)I worked hard to get ready and i want to show as much as I can. I have 3 basic styles, a new scripture pendant,(across the top, back) handbeaded pendant hearts and crosses, and misc. pendants. Normally, i wouldn't put trays on the tabe, but the parts on the hearts and crosses are interchangeable and I want it "hands on" to make up whatever combination my customer wants. Plus, they are my biggest seller. So, can we consider the trays a "senior playground?" and let me slide if it looks a little crowded? what do you think?

    Lucinda, hi! Congrats on your upcoming show! Looks like it’s going to be a hit.

    You’ve done a great job putting together a nice variety of items with themes and interchangeables. Somehow from here it looks a little dark and the first thing that I wanted to look at was the necklace on the white stand!

    Here’s a few ideas to try:
    * Could you remove a few of the smaller black stands
    * Keep a few pieces aside for ‘special requests’ or for items that are similar to others that are in the trays
    * Leave the trays in the front and add two more of the white stands if you have them on the left and right, to carry your eye from each side of the table and to the focal in the center back?

    I’m sure you’ll get a lot of great ideas from others. Even if you left it as it is, it’s a beautiful showing of your pieces. Good luck!! SLS

    The final design is great … a person can see everything at a glance, so to speak, and yet the eye moves throughout the presentation. You’ve done a great job. Good luck!

    I am new to beading and wondered where you got the crosses to put the beads in.

    I know I’m really behind in the times, but I wanted to add my two cents. I didn’t realize Lima Beads had such a warm, friendly, chatty place to visit. Love their beads, just never explored much further. Now, I’m going to look to see if I can find out how your sale went – your display looks lovely.

Add your thoughts!
