So here is an example of my largest set up vs my smallest. Of course everything evolves over time so don't get discouraged if you can't afford everything right away. The trick is to buy a base and then add on!
In the center of the top image is my Clothing Display Rack. Click on the highlighted words and you can shop for yourself. You can buy versions of this stand on Amazon and then use it over and over in different set ups. What I like best is how easy it is to set up and tear down. Literally just an Allen Key, which they give you in the packaging. And depending on how much you are taking to a market and how big your vehicle is, you can leave part of it together for even faster set up. It takes about 10 minutes to set up the entire thing. It doesn't matter what you are selling, you can either stack items direct on the shelves or use more baskets and bins. The racks come in multiple colors as well.The best part is Amazon has been selling versions of these for forever, so you will likely always be able to find one.
Next table talk. Oh sure we all know what a table is. But do you know what the ultimate table is? After years of searching I think I can save you some time. It's portable, it folds, it stacks, it creates corners or dividers in your booth for traffic flow, it has handles. AND it is washable. Yes that's right. Everything you put in your booth not only needs to look pretty, it needs to be durable and easily washed. These markets can be really frustrating when your stands break in a wind storm, or get covered in mud and then you have to replace them. Which equals time lost and money spent!
These are the tables I personally use (click highlighted text)
I love using 6 ft tables and I am sure you will too. They are light enough to carry and these ones come with carrying straps.
|At this market I had a lot of space, so I was able to place the tables opposite one another. This booth worked great as people were able to stand and shop at multiple sections. Note my base stand in the center. This allowed people to shop on either side of the stand as well as the tables and surrounding racks without bumping into one another!|
Here is a close up view of the table set up. Although it may seem my items are really spread out it's because I was supposed to have a tiny booth. But Covid hit and the Market asked us all to spread apart from one another and to use up as much space as possible so shoppers could easily access items. Which ended up being great for all the Vendors as no one felt squished; and I believe people spent more money.
I bet you are saying, hey that's great you are telling us about your tables. Now what about the coverings. Don't worry I am going to share that later in the article.
At this market I had a smaller space. Obviously, I still want to use as many tables as possible, so I cornered off a section. This gives you more room for display stands. Considering this is an afternoon market I don't always take all my table display items. This market is low key, and shoppers tend to buy a lot. I leave the decorative stands at home and load up on product. It makes for easier set up. My upscale events that I can set up a day before I take a more formal approach.
So let’s talks table coverings. This picture has a really great close up of what I actually use. Here is the link for them. Yes you guessed it, just click the highlighted text. These come in a variety of colors to match your branding. Adding a pop of color to your booth has never been easier.
I have multiple of these in 6 and 8 feet. My tables I carry around are 6 feet and sometimes I attend multiple markets in the same week. Well weather where I live can be unpredictable and the last thing I want to do at the end of a fun day selling is laundry. These are so inexpensive I have bought several to switch out.
Some Markets have tables set up for you already and they can be 6 or 8 feet. I always make sure to have both sizes in my car just in case.I also have a plastic lace table cover. When you set up at a multi-day event you cannot be worried about people setting drinks down, or children with food messing up the table coverings. Try adding a layer over top of the stretch table cloths. They are pretty enough to add some pop to your booth and again, inexpensive enough you aren't crying if someone spills a drink.
