This chalkboard ideas is super cute and easy to make!  It would get my attention from a distance and bring me in for a closer look.

Have you used chalkboard paint in your display?  If you haven’t, it might be time to give it a try!  You can even change the sign to meet your needs in seconds.

Cover bricks with burlap or your favorite fabric for a beautiful jewelry display.  What a cleaver idea…I wish I thought of it!

Repurposed dressers and small cabinets are always cute!  Grab the next one you see by the dumpster and give it a new life. :)



I’ve been a fan of these Ginger Cake little owls for years!  This shelf lined with sweet little stuffed creatures is sure to attract customers for afar.  She also has everything clearly labeled for easy shopping.

Turn everyday items into great display props.  Shop around your house or you local thrift stores.  Look for items that will give your display a little height to keep it interesting.

    I love all the ideas I see for craft fairs. Except, I sell large items. Quilts, baby blankets, and tote bags. I never see any suggestions for larger items. Any suggestions would help! Thanks. Keep up the great work!

    I love these display ideas but I agree with Amy J as I have large items like quilts and totes and would LOVE to see some display ideas for these.
