6th fair in Dubai.

Our last fair participation was at Uptown Mirdiff. It was a relatively small fair, mainly for the community. But it was well organized.  Being so close to Al Warqa, we were nearly in our comfort zone 🙂

With every new fair, something new is learnt and some improvements are made. You tend to learn to be better prepared.

Here are some of the pictures of the set up.

The outdoor fair season is relatively short in Dubai, so one has to make the most of it, while it lasts.

Fairs and Carnivals in Dubai

Another day, another fair !!

The best season in Dubai is welcomed in the month of November.  November also signals the onset of various fairs and exhibitions in Dubai. With each new fair, there is something new learnt and something new discovered.

I have been offering craft workshops at several fairs. For me, participating in these fairs is totally a family affair, with all the boys lugging boxes full of supplies and Samie, helping me with the set up. It is exhaustive work but I love interacting with people and nothing can bring me more joy, than sharing the knowledge of crafting.

Our last workshop was The lions pride family carnival and workshop at Al Twar.  Let my photographs do all the talking.

Did I have fun ? Absolutely !! Did the kids enjoy the activities ? The photos speak for themselves !

We learnt from our previous fair, that while the majority of children who participate in the activities are girls, the boys tend to feel very left out. Hence this fair, we tried something new and fun ! My next post will be about sharing that.

I hope you liked my display. If you participate in fairs, I’d love to hear some of the key points, you’ve learnt about participating in fairs 🙂

Fairs & exhibitions in Dubai, Window display

Shabby chic display for fair.

Hi friends !!

There are several reasons why I love visiting and participating in craft fairs.  The sheer joy of seeing so many creatively handmade things is just one of them. Another one of them is  how beautifully and creatively the some of the other participants arrange and organize their stalls.  Some with banners, some with bunting, loud colors, laces, tables with goregous spring colored skirting, some with balloons tied to their table poles to grab the attention while some with  paper/tissue  flowers linned on a string. Eye candy everywhere !  

This year at the JESS market, one particular stall caught my attention and I wished to share her arrangement. She is also a card maker and a very creative one at that. I love her minimilistic look. Here are some of the snap shots.

 

 

 

Let me explain some of the things that I liked most about her display :

  • She used white as her base color for the display stands, tree and even the table cover
  • Her table does not have a very cluttered look hence it is not overwhelming the buyer with color, design and what not !
  • The dash of color comes purely from her product hence the buyer does not loose focus on the item, and not the display itself.
  • And ofcourse as always, you can find a huge supply of shelves, display stands, easels, display tress of various lengths and designs at IKEA. One of my favorite haunts and I’m sure, yours too.

(disclaimmer :- Ikea does not pay me to advertise for them ~ {although I wish they would 🙂 }   

I am certain, you will draw inspiration from this outstanding shabby chic display, in your own stalls and display stalls.

I’d like to share these tips with the following parties :-
