Craft Show Inspiration

Hi friends!

It has been a crazy week! My studio is still in boxes from the move, and I'm feeling bad about not getting my glue gun fired up and telling y'all about it. Creativity is really what moves me! I go stir crazy without making things.

But I better get on it fast because I've been accepted to do my first-ever craft show! Woo hoo! I've wanted to do one for years, and I've always been entranced by the lovely displays at Round Top, Texas...dripping with vintage linens and cute bunting, luring you in to check out their treasures, odds and ends. 

So, since the studio's out of commission for the next week or so, I've been dreaming up displays and getting tons of inspiration from Pinterest. I stumbled upon a great comprehensive list for craft show virgins like me at Mermaid's Closet...If you're ever thinking about getting your feet wet at a market, it is a must read! Can't wait to hit up some thrift stores to find some great props.

And the pictures, well, swoon!!! Here are some of my favorites:

 Cute chicken wire frames at ittybittybirdy

Gorgeous rustic display by Urban Heirloom! Weathered wood is a fabulous backdrop to those delicate necklaces. Via oh, hello friend.


Suitcases: Storage + display. Lockette Paper & Fabric, via Mermaid's Closet
 
Love the darkroom-esque photo display by Mermaids Closet.
 A sunny yellow frame by Sunshine and Carousels.


Thanks for all the inspiration, ladies! Now it's time for me to get to work! Fellow Texans, come see me at Funky Finds in Longview on April 20 &21! It's all handmade goods...how sweet is that? Funky Finds also gives lots of fun crafty stuff away on their blog, too.

Wanna get warm fuzzies...support your local artists! I absolutely love buying from a friendly face whose own hands made something beautiful and unique.

Have a wonderful week and stay crafty!
