Craft Show Essentials

Fall festivals, craft fairs, and holiday show season is upon us. Craft shows take place all year round. However, the most popular time of year and best attended shows take place in the fall and winter months. This is always a great opportunity for many to step out and try their hand at retail. It is also a great opportunity to introduce your brand to the public. For many, craft shows can lead to a “big break.”

When attending a craft show, it is imperative that you arrive prepared to service your customers. Below is a list of all the retail essentials that you will likely need. While we have many options, this is a comprehensive list of our favorites and provides a great “go-to” list for craft show beginners.

Tulle Sale Wreath Tutorial

Tulle Sale Wreath Tutorial

Attracting customer attention to your store is one of the many challenges that business owners face each day. One of the most effective ways to overcome this is by getting creative in your store’s front window. Window display presentation is a wonderful way to express your creativity, while drawing people into your store. By utilizing your creativity, you can offer your customers a glimpse of the style they will see once they walk through your doors.

We have put together a fun, eye-catching tulle wreath tutorial that you can use to easily draw customer attention, either in a window display or once they are already in the store. With only a few supplies and your imagination, you can create something unique that can be used again and again. Inside of the tulle wreath, we designed signage that spells out SALE using the blank back side of our blue chevron boutique signage. We simply ran 4 signs through a printer vertically with each individual letter printed in the middle of the sign. We made diagonal cuts on each side to create an old-fashioned hang tag, punched a hole, and secured it to the wreath with fishing line.  Our complete line of tulle is available here.

Signage and Table Displays Ideas

sale displays

Signage is a key element in any retail space. Your signage allows your store to tell a story. Signs can contain very few words or an entire explanation of what’s going on and where to find merchandise throughout the store. Your main objective should be making sure your customers know about your special sale or promotion.

There is nothing more frustrating to customers than walking through a store that has a sale then getting to the register only to find that the item(s) you purchased were not part of “the” sale. We have put together some display ideas and tips featuring our products to give you some inspiration. We hope to give you some fresh ideas for your next sale.

  1. Nesting Display Tables- We offer several styles of display tables that nest into each other. This type of display is a simple way to show product without taking up a lot of space on the sales floor. Folding blouses or pants on the tables along with signage at different levels leaves no question in the customer’s mind which products are for sale.
  1. Sale Signs- Signs are available in a variety of styles and colors that coordinate well with whatever color scheme you are working with. We carry basic styles in classic colors like red and white. We also have more contemporary styles that feature black and white stripes, softer colors and patterns available in our Boutique Collection.
  1. Sign Holders- Sign holders are an essential part of displaying your signage in a professional way. Our sign holders are available in a variety of different styles and colors. We offer signage for tabletops, floor and clothing racks.

Our boutique line of signage features on-trend patterns that complement other products such as jewelry tags, necklace holders and packaging. We have sign kits available that can catch your customer’s eye outside the store to entice them in. Once inside, the theme can be carried throughout the store with matching sign cards, banners and streamers.

Don’t forget sign holders too. Sign holders can be used to direct customers to a specific sales area or to distinguish merchandise that you have on sale. A successful sale is always created with clear and focused signage throughout your retail space. Make sure that it is clear what is included in the sale. We have sign holders that can be mounted on top of existing clothing racks. We also have styles that complement all of our boutique collections. Best of luck as your business enters 2016, remember we’re here to help!
