Jewelry Booth Ready for Lytle Show

Jewelry Booth is READY

Jim and I went to Lytle earlier today.  We could set up our space at the Lytle Community Center between 10 am and 2 pm.  The booth space was 8 ft by 10 ft but it seemed smaller.  I used one six foot table and my four foot collapsible baker’s rack.  The baker’s rack is a really easy way to get LOTS of VERTICAL space at a craft show.  Also, the rack is easy to transport.

How I used my Baker’s Rack for this show.

I used the side with three shelves to display necklaces.  The top shelf was used to show my more expensive items.  The next two shelves were covered with $20 items.  The table space below the bottom shelf housed $10 items.

Top shelf showcases higher end items. Next two shelves are used to display $20 items. Space in front of rack on the table displays $10 items.

For this show I used the back side of the rack to hang various chains that I was selling.  Also, I displayed a picture of my storefront at the local flea market where I sell beads, jewelry making items, and custom jewelry.  I filled the remaining space on the table with more $5 and $10 items.

For this show I used the back side of the baker’s rack to display various chain necklaces that I was selling. I also put various $5 and $10 items. If I attend a show where I am also selling beads, I often hang my strands of beads from the back of the baker’s rack.

I have always used the left and right side of the baker’s rack to display themed jewelry.  Sometimes I will showcase my leather work, my rosaries, or seasonal items.  This time I displayed Halloween themed items on one side and Christmas themed items on the other side.   I try to have most of my seasonal items very reasonably priced.  The Halloween themed earrings are $3 pair or 2 pair for $5 and they are displayed in little coffins that I found at a dollar store.  The Christmas earrings are placed in a holiday tin.  Higher priced earrings and ornaments are hung on the metal trees.  These holiday items range in price from $3 to $5.  I have a variety of $10 holiday bracelets spattered around the metal trees and tins.

Collapsible baker’s racks are great for displaying  merchandise in a small space.

2016 Castroville Market Days

Booth at Castroville Market Days

Saturday, June 11, 2016  I went to Castroville to participate in their Castroville Market Days  event.   I took a nice mix of custom made jewelry and jewelry making materials.  I sold a variety of items that day…..leather bracelets, Spurs bracelets, and many of my $20 custom necklaces.  The initial rings were also well received.  Charms and rosary making findings were the most popular jewelry making items that I sold.

Had a great time and met some REALLY nice and friendly people. Check out the pictures of my booth.
