Gig Harbor Booth Setup



A few weeks back I had posted about my booth setup at the Edmonds Arts Festival. I got some excellent feedback from everyone on my blog and facebook page.

The main thing I changed this time was to paint the wall grid black, since the black and white checkered pattern was too distracting. I spray painted it with a black primer and I liked the matt dark gray look, so left it at that. It does look a lot better and several people commented on my booth display. It was a very hot weekend, so it did get a lot warm in my storage area behind the grid wall with all the black. But the look was worth it.

One other thing I took into consideration was to reduce the amount of things I display at a time. I beleive this made a difference too as people felt more at ease to pick things up without the fear of knocking things down.

Thank you everyone for your input. If you have any more suggestions feel free to comment. I really appreciate it!
My next goal is to make collapsable pedestals out of luann plywood and indoor/outdoor carpet.

This is an amazing display - the gray/black background shows off your beautiful colors.
Hope you did well at the show.

Thanks MagicMarkingsArt. The change in display did improve my sales. Even the slightest change as reducing the number of items displayed made an impact.

Looks wonderful! There's enough room to pick up the pieces and that is so important in pottery. It's the touch that gets us!

I absolutely agree with the 'less is more' philosophy when it comes to displaying work. I used to be one of those people who put out one of everything in every color. By not doing that now, I encourage people to talk to me, to ask for something if they don't see it. And with more space between items on the tables and shelves, people can actually SEE the pieces when they venture by. There's so much visual noise at fairs, that setting up in a way that helps people filter is important! Your set up is beautiful!

Charan, your booth looked great, and your new display shows off your items wonderfully. I'm enjoying my coffee mug very much, and look forward to using the casserole dishes. I hope you did well at the show!

You must be having a great summer. Love the display. I have also experienced that fewer items on display can add up to more sales. Looks like you found the magic number for you.

I love your display, Charan. Of course, I think you could set your stuff up on the sidewalk and it would look like an art gallery with no walls!
