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 :-

Market Day at Arabian Ranches 2011

We have already entered the fair (events) season, with the first one being the Arabian Ranches Market Day which was held on the last Friday of October. I was participating in the popular Arabian Ranches Market Day, last year, but this year, my schedule was too tight with the inlaws visiting us from Saudi and all the transformations I am working on at home presently.

As always the Market Day was excellently organized. We spend a lovely afternoon finding some amazing stuff and enjoying all the activities organized. Not only did we have over 100 stalls selling clothes, shoes, decoration items, cds, electronics, toys, books, games, furniture and heaps of many more things, but we also had stalls for games, face painting, rodeo rides and ofcourse tons of more activities. I managed to click a few lovely photos which I am sharing here. As a community, Arabian Ranches, always amazes me with friendly and mostly helpful residents.

Needless to say, I bought myself a heap of lovely stuff from the table top sales !
