It’s More Than a Booth…

If you’re a vendor, then you know that your booth is more than a table and display area.  Your booth is your mini-store, your means to share your personal creations and welcome visitors and (hopefully) buyers.

Browse a curated flea market, and you’ll soon realize what attracts you to a vendor’s booth.  Is it the colorful banner and bright packaging?  Is it the creative use of vintage items that make you want to take them home with you?  Or is it the edgy, hip vibe you get when you take a closer look at a unique design?

As a vendor you want your items to warrant a closer look.  Draw the visitor in, convince them to stay a while and get to know you and your product.  If you are sharing a “wall” with a friend, maybe you can create a common barrier that will benefit each of you.  Make use of vertical space–use ladders, freestanding display racks,  or stack wooden crates–to give you the biggest bang for your buck.

We want to encourage our vendors to use their imagination and creativity in their displays.  So we will be awarding a prize for the Best Booth!   Whether it’s a lovely vintage vignette or great graphics in your signage, our undercover judges will decide which booth receives the award at each event.

Need some inspiration?  Check out sites like The City Flea, Vintage Bazaar, and Cleveland Flea for ideas of creative displays.

Can’t wait to see how great our vendor booths look on June 21st!
