Get more stall for your buck

Christmas fair countdown tip
Get more stall for your buck

It can be a dark art trying to fit all of your products onto your stall, so while there is still some time left, have a think about going vertical.

By introducing some height to a stall, you not only give yourself more room to display items, but you can give yourself a better way to display them. There's nothing wrong with having people flick through a box of paintings, but hanging those same paintings really shows them to their best advantage.

You don't need to be a DIY genius to add a bit of height, either. Obviously you can get busy with building bespoke shelving, but a bookcase picked up from a charity shop works just as well. Or something like two bedside cabinets on either side of the stall with a shelf between them will drastically improve your display space.

Two vital things to remember, though. If you plan on doing fairs in the future, don't make anything that will only work with the 6ft x 2ft measurement we've been given for the Christmas fair. Just in case somewhere else has totally different tables.

Secondly, ensure that whatever you use is rock solid. If you are stacking boxes on top of each other, take along a cordless screwdriver and some screws to keep them together.

The easiest solution to anchoring props is to use clamps. Places like Screwfix or even Amazon sell them and they really don't cost much.
