Last Sunday I had a stall at my second Paperdolls Handmade craft market in Kings Heath, Birmingham.
It’s a lovely market run by Jo and Carolyn and held in the Hare and Hounds, a pub with fab original Victorian details (gorgeous tiles, high ceilings, exposed brick walls..).
When preparing for a craft fair I always worry that I won’t have enough stock to fill the table but I’ve learned that less is more if I want my products to really shine.
For this fair I concentrated on my brightly coloured crochet items and arranged them around two hand-painted teal blue crates. Items were grouped together for impact and I used the top of the crates to create height in my display. One of my heart garlands was tied between the two crates to bring everything together whilst also leaving some open space. As my items are so colourful I think it’s really important to keep my staging simple and use as few colours as possible: a white tablecloth and my signature teal blue on the crates on box for flyers.
I had some lovely comments from customers and I feel that this display really showcased my work to its best!
