Need help with craft show display?

My sister and I are doing a craft show in a couple of weeks. I sell printed & framed cartoon and name prints (12" x 15"), she sells handmade soap and pocket knives - strange mix, yes, but she has two websites. We will be at different tables but neither of us can determine the best way to arrange our tables. We need a way of creating shelves on the tables to display our items, we cannot afford to buy that fancy, collapsable shelving that is so commonly seen.

For me I was thinking of putting my framed prints in a plate holder, the kind used for decorative plates. She has thought about a spice rack of sorts.

Hoping that someone with a little more creativity and know-how might be able to provide some advice.


I did a craft show recently and wanted some shallow shelving to go along the back wall of my display area. I created it with core flute and some masking tape/staples.

Core flute is the material they make real estate 'for sale' signs out of. It is strong enough to take light items. I covered my makeshift shelving with black tablecloths. Looked quite classy, I thought :)

I also covered my table with a black tablecloth.

You could consider using an ironing board as a shelf too. It may be sturdier for your heavier items. Drape it with sheets or a tablecloth.

If you have items that can be put inside acrylic sleeves (such as scrapbook page protectors or cellophane bags) you can use Velcro dots to stick to the back of the bags to allow the items to be displayed on a draped cloth. We covered our stall walls in black cloth and covered them in handmade cards and scrapbook layouts, banners and light 3-d papercraft items. This might suit your printed & framed cartoons. Make use of small easels too on your table as an upright image will be more attractive than a bunch laying flat or piled together.

I think the soaps and pocket knives could be displayed on the shelving I described too.
