Preparing for a Fair

So I happened upon this event on Saturday, went back and forth whether to do it or not and then just went ahead and reserved a space. I have to be honest I was super nervous at first. This will be my first craft fair, I wasn't sure if I even had enough products, business cards, etc. Life has gotten in the way this last month and  I totally have not been preparing to do a fair anytime soon. Also I had no idea how to go about finding up coming events. Anyway, I'm not nervous anymore. If nothing else It will be a fun day with my mom and son. The event is a little over an hour from where we live which isn't terrible but it's next week, YIKES!

Between yesterday and today I have been trying to figure out packaging and display. I do not want to buy anything new since I'm not sure if I'll enjoy this and do fairs in the future. This is what I've come up with so far.

i would love to do an all white display, with maybe some doilies and lace to make it pretty and feminine. i bought the tired earring tree last week and spray painted it white. the pictured frames we painted black about a year ago. the little glass plates were from the previous home owners. i spray painted a few black and glue them to candle stick to make cute little platters.

 made these today

will be painting these plates and possibly making platters out of them

 made these earring cards today

 made these last night, still have a few more i'd like to make in other colors
 so far i love it! can't wait to have more room and add all my pieces

 I'm just hoping that the heat won't ruin our day. Now to get back to work and figure out how i'm going to transport all this. Wish me luck!
