It’s almost holiday fair season! And with that, we’ve compiled a list with some of our favorite must-haves for your craft fair booth, as well as a checklist to keep you organized on show day. Help yourself stay stress free and be prepared to present your best booth this holiday season.
Battery Pack for your Phone
No one wants to get stuck at their booth unable to process credit card transactions, or even call a friend for backup. A battery pack to help keep your phone charged during those long days at events can be a life saver.
Battery Operated String Lights
Add a little ambiance to your booth with string light decor. These lights are battery operated so you won’t have to worry about cords or whether the venue has electricity for you to use.
Battery Operated Clip Light
Spotlight your items and give your booth some light. Even during day events, shade inside a booth can make it difficult for customers to really see details on products. Having a few clip lights on-hand can really help illuminate your booth. Pro tip — these are also great for when you’re packing up after an event and need some light as the sun goes down.
Can be great for visual artists hanging their work. These can also be used with clip on shelving or hanging rods to display fashion and accessories.
Chalk Board A-Frame
Let customers know if you have any specials going on in your booth right when they enter. We like this sign because it’s a little higher up than a traditional sandwich board making it easier to see, plus it has a shelve for display.
Felt Letter Board
Perfect for a special message you want to relay to guests without having to chat up every single person that enters your booth.
Something as simple as “Ask me about custom work” can start conversations with interested buyers.
What’s awesome about this cart for lugging your gear is that you can use it as a cart or as a stand up dolly. Perfect for all kinds of loads that you may need to carry.
You can even pay a few extra bucks to get it in pink so you’ll never mistake your dolly with another vendor.
Buy your own pop-up tent so you’re self sufficient for shows. This is a no-frills tent, so you’re going to need to get your own walls and carry case if you need one, but for the price, you can’t beat it!
Prevent forgetting to pack last minute valuable items with our craft fair checklist:
We hope that these have helped give you some ideas as you plan your booth!
