trunk sale table inspiration

Hey hey, my friends.

I just had the most perfect weekend with my Aunt Rita, who came to visit for a last minute girls' (+ Jack) weekend. There's more to share on that, but only after I finish gathering all of the various iPhone pictures that we took. Apparently I've forgotten how to use a real camera, so...three cheers for camera phones!


I'm participating in my first trunk sale/craft fair this weekend! And to-date, I have one (yes, ONE) item packaged and ready to go. So while I'm taking advantage of every second during naptime and burning the midnight oil after bedtime, I thought I'd share some ideas I have about setting up the actual table.

I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on this part, but I do want it to look nice and get people's attention. Here's what I'm thinking:

  • A lovely tablecloth, like this one from Target. I think it's colorful without being so loud that the products get lost in the pattern.
  • Chalkboard signs, a la Lady Lee and Drew Jones. But maybe instead of making a chalkboard table, I'll make little signs to sit around the display?

  • A pretty fabric bunting and maybe a nice rug in front of the table, a la Oh, Sweet Joy. 

  • Maybe some wire baskets to hold my products? I've seen some cool ones at HomeGoods and TJ Maxx lately, so I might need to go check that out.

  • I love the idea of using clipboards to display some of my prints, a la Yellow Heart Art.

Lots to think about! And only a few days to think about it...

  1. easy non-fabric bunting: patterned contact paper. cut diamonds, fold them over a ribbon, and trim to be sure they're even. or just fold over a reeeeeally long piece and cut triangles out, leaving a bunting-like strip. if you don't want to buy a tablecloth, use some of your fabric remnants and tape them to the underside of the table. you can fold under the edges if you need to overlap any. just thoughts.
