Sharing a post about my Peony and Moss booth display from my personal blog:
I'll be at the Seattle Gift Show August 16th-19th, at the Convention Center, showing my designs for Peony and Moss socks, booth #1132.
I'm working on my signs for the booth today! Here's the booth design I created. I got a 10x10 booth, but the organizers called and said they're putting me in a 10x14 booth! Great news!
My booth will probably be much less packed than most people's but I believe less is more. Better to let people see the product.
That's me standing on the left. Then I have my inspiration boards with my socks hanging from them, for each of the 6 fall collections. I'm going to mount the mood boards on foam core, then cover them in white tissue, to tone them down more than they are in this picture-- that way the sock designs will pop more. I'm going to hang the mood boards with string and clothes pins from the 8 foot bar at the back of my booth, then I'll hand the socks with push pins from the boards. Then I have my table with a small wooden display, postcards, and business cards. The back and side walls and the table will all be covered in black cloth, which I think will really make my colorful sock designs pop.
I'm so excited to meet everyone at the trade show. I love doing trade shows and meeting all the small business owners- both buyers and other presenters.
Now I have to go pick up my prints from the printer, and foam core, spray mount, and an exacto knife from the art supply store... then a long day of mounting and cutting 6 signs. I'll be tired at the end of today! Tomorrow I set up my booth!
