Craft Fair Betty 3

So I’m two weeks away from the craft fair, and still working on the booth props and decor. I’ve found a simple garment rack on wheels for $10 through Craigslist, and a tall, metal CD storage tower for $5 at a local thrift shop. These should serve for a hanging display for jackets and vests.
Spied a really beautiful piece (well, two pieces in fact) of green fabric for .25 that became a banner after sewing together and finishing the edges. I then used some leftover fabric paint for lettering, and twine for stringing up.

I am thinking about some of the elaborate booths I’ve seen online and off, and hope that I can somehow duplicate a bit of an element of invite into mine; I’m actually toying with the idea of bringing some of my musical gear to use purely as props.
What invites you into a craft fair  booth?

Craft Fair Betty 2

After thinking it over, I’ve decided to rent a booth at an upcoming outdoor event here in Downtown Carson City. My desire to witness reactions to these first pieces of Betty Rockwear outweighs my desire to keep the cash in the bank…
And it’s not only the booth space fee! Those of you savvy in the world of craftfairdom know that that is simply the beginning-ha! Table, tent, fabric for draping, garment rack and/or grid for clothing display, and surely many things not yet thought of will have to be assembled in the very near future. I am excited by the idea of creating a vibrant display space, and on such short notice!
