Mock up for This Weekend

About this design:

I know, I know it is crowded. The table will be 6 feet so I put my table cloth on the floor to get a better idea for the size. I like the display stands on either end but I don't know about the middle. I also am not fond of the tall metal stand. Any ideas and thoughts would be great. Also I am on my own on Saturday..lugging everything, set up and break down...all by myself :( I hope I come home with a lot less :)

    I really like this set up for what you’re having to work with space wise, it looks really good. I actually LOVE that tall metal stand though! Ok…so I’m wierd, lol ;)

    I think the tall stand balances out the stuff. Bill totally cracked up with your text message “how do I know when to stop” He said sounded just like me when I’m setting up!

    thank you. It is funny how I thought I would never be able to fill up 6 feet but I filled it up in no time.

    Good set up, balance is good too, and only 1 table, I never can get it on 1 table. Good luck on the show.

    well I can add another table for $25. Since I have no help with set up and tear down I think the one that they provide will be ok. I worry about tear down. I have to be to work an hour after it ends.

    I like the stand in the middle and agree with Linda, it balances the set-up. :-D
    Do you have another small table of your own (or borrow one) you can take along? Even just a card table will help you spread things out a bit. (And save $25!!!) :-D
    Best of luck at your show!!!

    Jade aka Caryn says:

    It is $25 for the extra space even if you bring your own table. Plus I don’t have any help and don’t want to carry a table too.

    I agree with all the other comments. Don’t think you should change a thing. I agree with Raven – I like the tall rack too.
    You have some really beautiful pieces. Good luck with your show. :>}

    Good luck on your show Jade. I really like the photo album of your work. Can you set up something tall behind the table? Cheezy but a folding drying rack might put more items in view and encourage interaction with customers since they would need you to get the item. It is also light weight for setup and take down.

    I think it looks great, but then, I’ve never done a show. but listening to all of you, i’m getting inspired! I think the more together, the better, it looks abundant (and you don’t need to lug or pay for the other table). good luck!

    Yikes! $25 bucks for the extra space?!! 8O
    I totally understand not getting another!
    I guess we have it pretty good in our area.
    Booths are generally 10 x 10 we are welcome to bring our own tables.
    Best of luck to you this weekend!! And please, let us know how it goes! :-)
