No pictures today! Although I do have some coming. Today I have a question... does anyone have any ideas for fancy ways to display handmade crafts at a market? By handmade crafts I mean things like hair clips and doll's dresses and the like. I've made up some little cards with my "Popsicles & Polkadots" logo which I'm going to attach the clips to, but then what? Do I just sit them all on a table? Also, doll's dresses? I'm planning on taking a few of Ella's dolls so I can demonstrate what size dolls they fit, but how can I display dresses that aren't being worn? I also want to get something like this for kiddy sized clothes.

I'm getting way ahead of myself here since the markets in our area don't even start until spring/summer, but I just want to get some ideas so I can be prepared! I'm not even sure if selling handmade things there is a good idea. Most of the market stalls are people selling their old second-hand junk, but there are usually people selling things like handmade soaps and cosmetics and handmade jams etc, plus people selling plants and fruit/vegetables, so I guess it's worth a try.

Tell me your ideas people!! (all two of you who read this haha)

  1. String and mini pegs! My two favourite things in the world, lol. Markets sound like fun! It's a good thing if most people only sell junk- you're stuff will stand out! Markets here are already flooded with homemade stuff :(

    I realised last night my stupid cards for the stupid things I haven't tried to sell yet now have the wrong website on them. grr!
