I will be doing my first market stall/art booth next month, and I would like to ask for advice. I will be going with miniature clay food, but because they are SO small I don't know how to display them. (and they can get stolen easily)
Anyone got tips and tricks for a newbie?
(also what tags do I use to ask for help/questions on this website? @Curator)
I would say, display your pieces so you can see them all from your spot behind the table, maybe on a back-less little shelf unit (well secured/weighted, of course) or other device. That way you can see through, arrange them from the back, etc. - and keep an eye on them. Also in general, vertical displays save a ton of space on your table. And having the pieces in lovely little rows together will catch the eye and be intriguing! Hope that helps.
@betsystreeter oh I had not thought about that idea yet! Especially handy for restocking indeed ^^ Thank you for the advice
@Loryenne You’re welcome! I’ve done a lot of tables at comic cons and so had the chance to experiment - a friend and I actually had a very old piece of toast we turned into a display and people came to visit it each year :-)
@betsystreeter sorry to ask but.. A piece of toast as in bread? (sorry English is not my first language)
@esthi oh I have one of those glass dome things! They are a good idea so people won't try to pick up the miniatures. Thanks for the tip!
