My Market Display Set-Up

I frequently talk about products in my shop and what has inspired me to make them. Many of you know I sell paper goods online through Etsy, but I also sell them in person at market events throughout the year such as Bench Made and Love, The Locals. Creating a display that is attractive, showcases my product well, and allows customers to view products is very important to me. So, today let's chat about my current set-up and why I did things the way I did. 

Coming up with a display set-up has been ever evolving for me. As I add more products I need to rethink how items are display, what is using my space wisely, and how my set-up communicates to customers. This year I re-worked a couple things that were not utilizing space effectively, and ended up using an L-shaped display pictured below.

One of my FAVORITE new things is this stackable hexagon wall. I had to twist my husbands arm quite a bit to make it, but it turned out great! Part of my logo is comprised of a hexagon, so it was only fitting to extend this shape to a part of my display. The hexagons allow the display to expand vertically and showcase prints and products. I also wanted to create a statement, and hope this wall of hexagons does the trick.

Another one of my favorite pieces is this pegboard display board (below). I wanted something that could house cards, prints, journals or whatever paper products my heart desires. We used these wooden spice racks from IKEA, and stained them darker. To make them functional we mounted them on to pegboard, but can adjust their placement when we need. I love how I can adjust this display should the need arise, and clearly display various products.

Last, but not least I have this handy little shelf. This shelf is also adaptable to display what I need. It easily holds cards and journals and adds warmth and character to my display. This shelf has been with me since the start of doing market events and it holds a special place in my heart. 

I certainly hope this can inspire other makers in their pursuit of creating a market display. Enjoy!
