7 Examples of Great Booth Displays and Why

Post Date: Dec 30, 2022

We've gathered 7 photos from successful and beautiful flea market booths here in Shipshewana, Indiana that will help you get your creativity flowing and customers buying.

1. Good Use of Color... is why we love it!

The colors you use in your booth display communicate a lot about your brand and who your ideal shopper is! Use color to invite people in and give them a sense of what you're all about. For example, if you're a fashion boutique for women, maybe using hot pink or purple is a good idea. 

This flea market booth is all about hand painted signs. The variety of colors used in the front of the booth are used so well to draw in shoppers adding contrast and personality.

2. Varying Heights... is why we love it!

Oil of Gladness Decor, Booth 619-620

This booth uses crates to hold and display their products. The crates match the vintage atmosphere and they create height and depth to the space. This flea market vendor is actually hanging products from the lattice on the ceiling.

Creating height in your booth display allows for good traffic flow as it clears up space on the floor, and helps your booth look more full.

3. Encouraging Length-of-Stay... is why we love it!

At larger markets, shoppers are on their feet constantly. One way you can attract them to your flea market booth is by simply offering chairs or benches in your booth display. I even saw one vendor have a chair outside their booth, and they lovingly labeled it "hubby chair." What a great idea!

On a hot day, you could have a fan running or even a misting station. When you encourage people to sit or get relief in your booth, you're creating a welcoming atmosphere that shoppers will thank you for and it gives them more time to see and BUY your products!

4. Clear Pricing... is why we love it!

Flea market vendors don't often think about how to communicate pricing when they are planning booth displays.

Shoppers appreciate when shops are organized based on price with clear signage - it makes it so easy for them! I don't know how many times I've actually walked away from an item I was interested in simply because I wasn't sure on the price and didn't feel like interrupting the vendor to find out.

5. Decorated for the Season... is why we love it!

If you have a permanent booth at a market, one of the challenges is keeping your display new and fresh so that customers will come back. One way to change up your display is by decorating for the season. For example, in the fall, hang some leaves around your booth, or add some fresh gourds or pumpkins. At Christmas, add some garland or Christmas lights.

If it's not in your budget to decorate each season, try re-arranging your booth or using products that reflect the season to keep it looking fresh like this booth did for Independence Day with Americana themed items.

6. Great Use of Stands... is why we love it!

Miss Chic, Booth 607

Miss Chic is a clothing and accessory boutique that does an excellent job of displaying items in a way that helps customers visualize the items on themselves. 

Consider purchasing stands or wire grids to hang or display items - especially if it's jewelry or apparel. Or, consider using items like ladders or pallets to hang scarves and other accessories.

7. Backdrops & Greenery... is why we love it!

A simple way to express your personality and create atmosphere is to decorate with backdrops, table cloths and greenery! This olive oil booth is decorated to feel like you're in an Italian bistro. The velvet table cloth and the greenery at the checkout counter create added texture and fullness to the display.
