This is a picture post showing all the changes our booth as gone thru for the past couple of years. We have a few more changes pending, as we are planning on adding new products and need to revise the space a bit. Look forward to our new booth in October!

The evolution of our booth is kinda interesting. it is a mix of needed changes and ease of use for the customer. One major change – we started using a tin for each candle scent. We fondly call these Sniffers or Smellers.  We were actually wasting candles, because as you will see a couple of pictures down, we opened a candle to sniff. When the wind blew, cinders and dirt would blow onto the surface of the candle.  So the candles became unsellable. I mean seriously, who wants a dirty candle? The waste was becoming crazy, so I looked around my craft room and discovered the little tins…and the rest is history.

Our first Booth: Not the best organization, eh?
Our first 2 tier display
Opened the jars to provide customers with smells. Problem was they always got dirty when the wind blew.

Here is the next major evolution of our booth. Tried many ways to display our candles and soaps. None of them really worked. We just were not showcasing our product. After some contemplation and thought we came up with a design for a take apart shelving unit.  Yeah, I know, we are the ONLY ones in the whole world that has come up with this design..lol  Never the less,  my dear hubby and partner in crime made our shelving units. They have been wonderful. They break down well, and store well. They also showcase all my products! We have done some minor revisions, and have a new addition planned soon, including double shelves for corner booths and another tier for our new candles.

Yep, this is a keeper! But I am not that fond of the baskets…
