This week's focus - craft display ideas.
We are quickly approaching craft show season. Some of you who live in warmer locations might already be deep into shows. So this week, all of the articles are focused on helping you get your booth ready for shows.
There's a long article about securing your tent with canopy weights - a must-read if you do outdoor shows and use a portable canopy. It includes information about DIY tent weight options as well as information about store bought tent weights.
There's also an article about lighting your craft booth. While the photos all show jewelry booth lighting, the lighting solutions apply to any booth type, so do be sure to check it out even if you're not a jewelry designer.
There are 34 booth photos including handbag displays, hat displays, and food display ideas. Again, I've organized the photos by craft type, but you can get inspiration even if you make something else. You'll see examples of table top stands, pegboards, grid walls, and plenty of other craft display ideas you can translate to your own booth.

It's surprising how easily a portable canopy can be blown around in the slightest bit of wind.
