What are some cheap/inexpensive ways to make?

I need some kind of stand for this craft show I'm doing. I am so nervous and have no idea of how I'm going to set up. I don't want to just throw everything on a table. I'm debating bringing my embroidery machine. Thanks for any help!

I need something to hook things on like zipper cases and/or bibs!

What about taking a ladder, a wooden one, and maybe screwing hooks on the ends of the steps??

anyway you can get a swivel display thingie? someone at the craft fair I attended had one for all her clutches and it spun around so that you could see different ones...

That's a good idea! My MIL has all kinds of things so maybe she has one. I'll ask.

I wish! I do have a good friend that recently closed his business of 25 years. I'm going to go snoop his garage tomorrow. Maybe there is something there I can use!

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but I use these. I use the gridwall too but that's kinda expensive for now and then use. I keep them set up in my craft room so i can see my items and then move them when i do shows.

Thrift stores! Man, if only you were near me - yesterday I was at a going out of business sale and this store had several swivel peg displays, hanging racks, and pegboard 3 side swivel displays for cheap. You can get candle holders and stand them up on those, or get an old shutter and S hooks and hang them from that. Or even a piece of chain link propped against the wall behind your booth :)

The idea i gave my mother, was to buy a set of stocking holders, for over the fire place and a curtin rod, then hang things on the front or side of your table, make sure the rod is adjustable in case you are using someone elses table.or have to replace your table.
Hanging also a hat rack can help ir drying rack covered with a simple table cloth

Good luck with your sale! What are you selling? Im still christmas shopping
