: I have just entered the craft festival circuit.

I need to develop a "booth" The festivals I plan t

o attend are handcrafts, and old fashioned days. I make hand dip beeswax candles and demonstrate the craft at my booth. I want to work on designing an attention getting, easy up, easy down, and welcoming booth. My theme of course needs to be in line with the old pioneer/homestead days. I also need to protect my candles from the sun. The majority of my candles are tapers in connected pairs. These do best if they are hung up. I also want to emphasize the fact that they are made from 100% beeswax. For accents I am leaning towards browns and gold, maybe sunflowers and honeybee skeps. Another Idea is quilt back drops and eyelet lace. I need my signage and display fixtures to be "old fashioned."I am collecting Ideas ... any of you want to share some? Any ideas you want to throw my way would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

That design sounds great !!! I saw a lady once with candles and sachets - she used an old wicker suitcase as a display . Good luck in your crafts !
