Newbie vendors, take note! We’re sharing posts every Wednesday in October about preparing for an amazing selling experience at Renegade. We want to empower you to take advantage of the opportunity to grow your business by selling at Renegade, and this series of post delves deeper into some FAQ that we get from vendors.
Booth design isn’t always the first thing our vendors work on when they are preparing for fairs (we know you’ve gotta make work to sell, too!), but a well thought out booth design can help make for a very successful show. Creating a space that highlights your work, while also communicating vital information (your brand name and your prices), helps to pull shoppers into your booth and gets them engaged with the items you have for sale. The booth featured above is one of our all-time favorites – Something’s Hiding in Here‘s ambitious booth design from Brooklyn Renegade back in 2009!
Some things to remember when designing your booth:
Having a booth at a craft fair offers you the opportunity to set-up your own pop-up shop. It’s fun to approach setting up your booth as you might set up a retail storefront. A booth at Renegade provides you with a blank canvas that you can customize with your own furniture, displays, accessories, props, backdrops, decorations and more.
The more creative and well put-together your booth display is, the more eye-catching it will be to attendees looking to soak it all in. Take decorating your booth just as seriously as you would crafting your handmade items. The end result will be that your set up compliments your work, and helps you to make more sales and draw attention to your brand.
