Once you get people into your craft show booth, it is important to make the sale. While you never know if the person who heads in is going to make a purchase, you might be able to increase the chances by coming up with interesting and unique displays that attract the customer to your crafts.

It isn't easy. You need to use your imagination, and you also need to use a little bit of creativity and marketing savvy in order to get those valued customers to open up their wallets and purses in your craft show booth.

Here are 4 ideas for displaying crafts in order to attract more sales:

1.) Display in surroundings - Let's say you are a potter, and you are trying to sell your flower pots for the upcoming spring flood of gardening gifts. Why not take a half dozen planters (or more) and plant a beautiful array of flowers and plants in them? When people can visualize how the planter is going to look in their yard, they are usually more inclined to make a purchase. Help people 'see' your craft in their homes, and you increase the chance of a sale.
