Inspiration : Making the Most of your Booth Space

For those of you who haven’t done a market before (and for those who have) we wanted to provide you some ideas for setting up your display. The booth spaces at El Korah Shrine are 6’x6′ again. Please use your space to best display your product, below are a few layout suggestions for an outward facing and inward facing design.

Here are some useful tips for displaying your goods:

  • Layout and access to your booth makes a difference for your patrons – do a mock-up at home before the event if you can.
  • Decide where you want to sit / stand in your space.
  • Plan a location for additional merchandise and gift wrap.
  • Create signage so patrons know what your booth name is.
  • Be creative with your booth materials, create more than one level of display.

Below are some display ideas from a few of our 2015 Wintry vendors – check out our Pinterest board  for more!

(p.s. You have just a few more days to apply – application deadline is this Saturday September 17th!)

Camp Wintry : Cookies, Crafts & Convo

Last week Team Wintry hosted our 2015 Camp Wintry, a meet-up of vendors and an event Q&A with Amy and Kristin at BeeWise Goods/Boise Bakery on State Street. Owner, maker, and entrepreneur extraordinare, Gabrielle Krake, hosted us and provided the biggest and best cookies in town (which, by the way, paired really well with our wine and beer). We can’t thank her enough for offering up her space, sweet treats, and sharing her expertise as a past vendor and shop owner. Gabrielle, along with a handful of other experienced Wintry sellers, gave the newbies great tips on bringing enough cash, the intricacies of using phones and tablets for electronic payments, and filing the appropriate tax documents. We shared Julia Green Illustation’s amazing posters for this year’s event, and talked about the logistics of parking and booth set up. It was such a great night to meet up and ask and answer questions. Looking forward to seeing what our 60+ creative vendors bring to the El Korah Shrine in a few short weeks!
