New look for the Fall Shows

It's that time of year - Fall craft fairs are here! I have changed the look of my booth with new signage, table coverings and accessories. Let me know what you think.

Kelly, of the Etsy shop Yellow Magpie, came up with this new design and color scheme for my sign. The sign came out really well and I had a god response from customers. Thanks Kelly!

I added some vintage suitcases and globe to my tables to make them more fun. The faux snakeskin train case is always a hit.

This is my favorite suitcase - my grandmother Mimi's from the 1950s. Makes me feel like a part of her is still with me. She was an awesome grandmother.

The booth is a work in progress. I plan to add risers for the Crafty Bastards show coming up October 3rd. I also plan to have more product and another suitcase. I'm thinking of spray painting the bookcases white - let me know if you think that is a good idea.
