Next up in my craft booth journey:
The Sales Table!
(I know! Exciting!)
In my booth I always mean to carve out a nice space for me. A place where I can stand attentively, check people out (I mean transactions, not judging their outfits….though, lets be honest, I’m gonna do that too) and have some space to store bags and tape and all the other stuff that I need.
But it never happens.
I always end up stuck in the back, sometimes only able to converse with people over the top of some display.
But not anymore! (this is the exciting part alluded to earlier – brace yourselves).
For the Jackalope Pasadena show I was determined to come up with a better option.
Looking around the garage for a solution a lightbulb went off.
(*having lost all my good pics please forgive this photographic tour of my back patio)
I had a great sales table that had a narrow, space-saving profile, a little room for some “impulse purchase” products and, best of all?
It worked perfectly! I didn’t even need to attach the top – the weight of the wood kept it in place. And it folds up super-compactly (probably not actually a word) for easy transport.
I think I’m going to paint the CR logo on the front for the fall shows.
So I was good, right? Problem solved and I never have to think about it again!
Lets be real I’m still (relentlessly) me!
I re-arranged things for the Long Beach Patchwork show and it was better for customers but I was back to not-much-space-for-me.
So I reduced myself to one bookshelf.
OK, that’s fine….but I have waaaayyyy to much drop cloth for that (and I’m trying not to buy more stuff)
Perfect little podium!
But I like it. Equally compact for packing – still a good amount of storage.
I just need to build some little side pieces just to really finish it off.
I think I’m done, for now, with my booth layout (stop laughing, it’s rude)
Yes, seriously. I have that big Halloween convention Midsummer Scream” at the end of July and I ton of ideas to try out.
