This week we'll look at using slat walls in portable displays. Slat walls, when combined with hooks and other accessories, can be used to display a huge variety of types of crafts. Unlike tables, they don't take up a lot of space, and they can help you make effective use of the full height of your booth space.

We'll look at a retail shop full of fabulous handmade pewter jewelry and houseware items. This shop has plenty to teach about the use of color in your branding and in your displays.
