Default First Craft Show!

Here are pictures of my first event/show. I sat everything up today but the show actually isn't until tomorrow. Should I add anything? I was thinking about some balloons?

Your set-up looks Great . One thing I would recommend, not that it will make that much of a difference, is to get a wrinkle free table cloth....I love the color! I use a wrinkle free sheet deocrated with many of my rhinestone designs.....I has a very spontanous show yesterday with literally 5 minutes notice....I had to run home and threw a few things in a bin and went back to set up. I had my table cloth folded up since my last show in March and haden't even looked at it since, and I was very happy when I opened it up yesterday to put on the table and it was perfect! I got the sheet from Walmart for around $15; it may have been less. I have had it for two seasons now, this one will be my third and it is still perfect....Good luck with your future adventures.....

I like your set up too, but as for the table cloth, it looks plain. I would maybe drape a black sheet ontop and add some feather boas and have a sign.

Thanks for the suggestions.. The table cloth was just purchased.. It's polyester so it doesn't seem like it will hold wrinkles that bad.. I actually did have a banner on the front of the table but it hadnt been put up yet.. It was grey and white chevron print with my logo.. Should have taken the pic with it on. Show went great.. Way better than I was expecting.. I made a little over $150.

Curious me again; how much does it cost to vend at these types of shows? I will spend what you make for a show and I consider it a good show when I walk away with $1,000+

The table was only $30.. Average here is $20-$30. It was a four hour fall festival at a camp. Surprisingly most of my customers were teenagers and they were looking for the elastic hairties.

What size table were you given and what size tablecloth did you use to cover it? I like how it comes down to the floor like that.
