the headache of stand setting


I need to hurry up now to sort out my stand for the christmas fairs, and start making the list of what i will need.It might seem a bit early but actually it is not, i will soon have to send the stand design to the exhibitions organizers, and i still have my doubts.
I am not a stylist and i don't know where to start, and i have so many restrictions to think about...First i don't have a lorry so I can't take a big amount of furniture to set it as nicely I would like to, and the stands are very small especially the Country Living fair one (2 meters by 1.5m !).
I have quite a little collection of french plaster frames, and i think the fairies will sit nicely in them, but i still haven't found a idea to present the baubles nicely.
Another of my problems is: where to hide the stock that i will need to keep on stand on busy days...?bearing in mind the square footage...
If you have an idea, please let me know, i am running out of inspiration...

I am so in love with your fairies! They are so cute and so beautiful and so tiny! Iam just learning to work with polymer clay and I hope someday I can be as good as you are. These little fairies are just adorable and they look so smooth almost life like.

I put your link on my blog, I hope you don't mind.

I'm so pleased you are doing the CL fair again. I bought one of your baubles a few years ago and I would love to buy another one. Or maybe two or three!

Love the plaster frames the fairy looks lovely in it. Sounds like you have some planning to do, good luck.

I don't know if my suggestion is what you were looking for and i hope that my English will make you understand my idea: do you know those benches that are a box? I mean it's a bench where you can sit but when you get up, the seat can be opened like a box... they are used to store blankets and so... so, you'll be sitting on your storage... :) was this a bit of a help?

I don't know if this helps, having never been to CL, but would it be possible to put a tablecloth over your main table that is long enough so the cloth hangs down to the floor (at least in the front) so that you can store boxes underneath without having them show from the front of your booth?
