The fair was in Building 21 on the site which used to be an ironworks and its industrial past can still be seen which makes for an interesting and unique setting.
Seeing a different kind of fair to the ones I usually sell at gave me lots of ideas for new and different stall displays. I particularly liked some stalls which used old crates like shelves to give a rustic feel and build height for large items. Suitcases were also used to good effect either flat on a table and open to rummage through or stood on their side open like a cupboard with items hanging in them. There was also a stall that had garden trellis around it to hang different items on giving a lot more display space. Not all of these could be applicable to a paper craft stall, but they were great to look at and enjoy.
These are some ways that I displayed my crafts today.
Chalk boards are really useful to add descriptions or special offers highlighting a certain product. You can also easily change the price or the product to suit what's selling!
Seeing all the other lovely stalls has given me plenty to think about in terms of display and if I can find some smaller crates I'd love to use them on my stall. I only have one more summer fair and then I'm taking a craft fair break until the Christmas fairs start in November - by which time I might have found some crates!
