A few people have asked me to share my 2011 Booth Shot (the photo artists submit with art/craft fair applications, so the show organizers can see what the artists’ overall displays look like). So, here ’tis. My booth set-up has evolved quite a bit over the past couple of years. For one thing, I now set up my 10′ x 10′ space so that the tables are aligned on the outer edge of the tent/space (instead of creating an inner sanctum into which shoppers have to enter before browsing). In addition, I have added what I call “fluff” — things like the vase of flowers, the tall branches (IKEA), the suspended wire-frame balls (Crate & Barrel outlet store), and the vintage spools and pewter bowl off to the left (part of the larger family collection). I’ve started scouring the hidden-away cabinets and closets in my house for things that I’ve acquired over the years, never had a place to use, and yet never had the heart to give away, to find “fluff” to add to my booth/display. I also, for the first time, had a poster made of my logo and hung it behind my display tables. When a pastel-painter friend of mine sets up her booth display, her gorgeous framed work advertises itself from yards away. My jewelry, though, is small, so in order to get folks to look closer I’ve got to have something that shouts, “Come look at this unique work!” I think the logo poster does that (and, it reinforces my “brand,” which is always a good thing). My question is: What can I do better in my booth set-up and in my Booth Shot photo? I’d love suggestions, if there are any out there… And, thanks!
