Looking for ways to show off your handmade clothing at a craft show or event? Check out these inspirations for fun clothing displays.

Clothing does best when it’s highly visible as opposed to folded up and placed on tables or just jammed onto a plain clothing rack.  Unfortunately, without a ton of booth space, it can be hard to create an effective display.  Check out these ideas I found and why I think they work well.

Craft Show Clothing Displays

craft fair clothing displaysI love this booth.  It has a great table front sign, the round rack in front, and everything tiered and displayed in such a way that you can see very easily what this lady is selling and how much variety she has.  She makes great use of her space and it appears full without being too cluttered.  There’s walking space and room to move around a bit.

Overall great use of space.

She also makes great use of her table space with pictures of little ones wearing her clothes.  This is a great retail trick used to help people visualize your items in use.  Whenever you can have a photo of your product in action, or display it in a way that it may be used in a home, you improve your chances of making sales.

Great job in a small space, inexpensive set-up and obviously effective.


Clothing Display InspirationsThis photo links to a fantastic article about this woman’s business.  Isn’t her display fantastic? Yes, there are more than clothes here, but look at the symmetry, great use of lines and angles in her 10 x 10 space.

She has items up along the wall, a mannequin where you can clearly see her design, hanging racks with shelves in the middle help visually by giving the eyes a break while maintaining that put together look.

Her displays provide nice clean lines and don’t detract from her work.  If the booth space were larger, another mannequin and a small table with some images might be a great addition.

Still, excellent use of a small space.


clothing display ideas for craft fairsWhat I like with this display is the use of the mannequin at the corner that has the full outfit on.  This is another example of showing your products in use and how they coordinate with each other.

This can increase sales because someone looking for a scarf may see the matching gloves or hat and decide they need the whole ensemble.

I like how this rack looks a bit like monkey bars. While it’s certainly not the jazziest looking display (I honestly think it overtakes the clothes due to the lack of contrast and how bulky it looks) With a bit of work and perhaps a bit of paint and a shelf to display some folded items and possibly the literature that’s on top – this could be a great display.

There is great use of color, contrast, and line with the mannequin.




round clothing display rack

My last entry here in the interest of full disclosure is a product recommendation.  This is a foldable, round clothing display rack which makes it portable.  Hangers can easily slide around, making your items easier to get to and see than a standard rectangular display rack.

I would put a small shelf on the top with a mannequin head perhaps and coordinating hats/accessories.  Another idea would be to put images of your items being worn.

Round racks are less common, look sleek and this particular one is under $100 and has good reviews on Amazon.  Click the link to view more information on it.

  1. Thank you, I sell handcrafted dog clothes and was wondering of a way to spruce up my booth and how to display them. I’m a newbie at this and need all the help I can get.
