Note the "platforms" in the background


This year I made a dozen or so little flat bottomed, flat sided cylindrical dog and cat dishes. They are not proving hot sellers although I know for certain they will sell online so I'm not concerned. One problem I have with my displays (This is now the third time ever that I have set up an in-person show) is that I don't get enough height in the back. So when I have a shelf with lots of mugs they are all sitting there in a boring row around the same height.


Well last night I went around and used the dog bowls turned upside down as pedestals! I'm totally delighted because they add to the color of the shelf and height too. Next year I'm going to specifically make as many of them as I can in a huge batch ahead of time just to use as pedestals! I'm going to make some of a third height as well. I hated the idea of buying acrylic display props. This is much much better to me!

I am LOVING the green! Throw some super tall cups, mugs, pitchers, or vases! That will help the height problems ;)


I will for next time. But I don't find the pitchers or vases are particularly hot sellers. It's all about the mugs at these shows. And online I sell totally different stuff!
