Kustom Kraft Market - 23 May 2010

We had a great market day yesterday at Kustom Krafts. The stall set up was totally overhauled for this market and we think it made a huge difference.

This is what our stall used to look like:



Pretty underwhelming wasn't it! We've now progressed to this:

To start, we made bunting. We didn't have it at our previous market stalls. I drew the bunny head shape and Ky cut it out of felt using the Klik n Kut machine. Ky made the bunting last week and then glued the shapes to the triangles. Pretty nifty, even if we do say so ourselves! We used the same bunny head shape for our product tags.

Can you see all the bunny heads? We love the way they tied the whole look of the stall together. We put all of our smaller lengths of fabrics onto half size bolts and then arranged them into tubs. We stacked them up so they looked like shelves in a real store. It saved room on the table top for us to feature our handmade cushions and bags.

The best modification would have to be our new rack for displaying our fat quarters. It is made from the sides of a recycled wooden cot that we added a hinge to and then painted. Putting the fat quarters up this way was a vast improvement from having them piled up on the table like we used to do. It kept the table tidy, drew attention to our stall (nice and colourful) and also helped us to maximise our space.

So what do you think?
