Photographers – Craft Shows, Art Fairs and Events!
With a brand new year, comes a number of new events and opportunities to display your art, your talent, your skill and your final product! Well, I think this is the question of the week. “I am attending an event! How do I display my photos for sale?”
I am always open to new questions, and my objective is to provide as many solutions as I possibly can. In this instance, there are several answers. You can spend a lot of money on fancy displays, or you can attack the problem yourself with a DIY project, and a little imagination. All you need is a bit of free time, and you can build your table top of floor display with anything from a cardboard box, to wood, or even copper pipe. Yes, I did say copper pipe.
What I am not going to do is tell you to get a table…or a tent. I think those are the obvious elements required at any display. What I am going to do, is share with you a number of different ways to display your product when you get to your location. I am going to provide you with suggestions and those options, and links to allow you to check out those options.
First – here is a new Pinterest board I have launched to provide you with some new display ideas for upcoming shows and events. There are a number of boards out there that provide detail and images of how to pull together an event. I have tried to keep you focused on the essentials.

Most importantly…”use your imagination”! I know some of these links will show you a book or magazine rack. Others will show you how to reuse a laundry rack or a hotel luggage rack. There are no “rules” for how to display your art. Your art is “creative”! Your display should reflect you as an individual.
Good luck and good selling!
