Last week Greg and I spent some time revamping the show table display. For every show we have scheduled we set up a mock table in the dining room so we can decide on inventory we need and what needs to be revamped. With each show we learn what works and what doesn’t and where we want to make changes. This year the table is getting a major overhaul.
I spent a good deal of time looking at other table displays and figuring out what appealed to me in terms of showing off inventory. So far, my favorite has been JC Herrell’s display. If you are a friend of hers on Facebook, you can find her display here. You can see I have borrow heavily from her aesthetic. Thank you, JC!
Ours is still a work in progress. The cream display on the left is being redone, and please ignore the weird thing to the right of the marbles. That’s an idea in the making and will look nothing like what you see there. I need a special display for my ring focals and Greg and I were brain storming. I still don’t know what it will look like, but Greg is mulling it over. He has ideas, which is always kind of dangerous. 😛 No need to worry though. See that light bar? Yeah, he built it. Pretty cool huh? The only other things I need are white inserts for the bead trays. Got to keep everything orderly.
So, for the next few months I will be buckling down and filling this table. Much of what you see on it right now is Greg’s inventory and of course, the murrini. We have a ton more than what you see there, this is just mock up. Man, I have work to do.
On to the show:
