6 Easy Tips for Planning Your Flea Market Booth Display

By Carlie Cripe

When developing the theme and style of your flea market booth or craft show booth, there are some general rules of thumb to live by in order to make your booth stand out and draw attention to your display. Below, I’ve pulled together 6 easy rules to follow when creating your stand-out booth display.

1. Lighting

Want to catch your customer’s eye? Use lighting.
It creates a friendly glow and sets your booth apart from the rest of the vendors. String lights, lamps or spot lights, it doesn’t matter! Lighting is friendly and inviting, it creates ambiance and atmosphere.

2. Table Cloths

Bring subtle flair and softness to your booth with simple fabrics, but use caution! Don’t let your table cloth distract customers from your product.


Use muted colors with delicate prints. You want your items to be the focal point for customers, not loud fabric that camouflages your products.

3. Height & Dimension

Flat is boring.


Spice up your display with various heights, levels and dimensions. Use tables AND floor displays.


Create height on your tables with different sized crates, shelving units or hanging fixtures.


Free-standing grates or wall grates used in the back of your booth creates dimension and height—as well as maximizes space that would otherwise not be used.

 4. Props

Props are a great way to get customers to connect with your merchandise. Don’t leave anything to the imagination, people need to be shown how to use your products!


Let them see how great it would look on them or in their home.


Sell plant holders? Put a plant in it!


Make coffee mug cozies? Put a mug in it!


Show customers how great your product is!


5. Uniform

When your space looks well put together and uniform, customers can tell you put time, effort and energy into what you do.


The sharpness of your booth also reflects your product.


Having a clean, organized and aesthetically pleasing space is appealing to customers, so take time in putting together a well-maintained booth. Keep it well stocked, pleasing to the eye and inviting.

6. Unique Display

Any type of a unique display is going to draw attraction. Have an eye-catching prop or unique piece of art adorn your booth. Get fun and creative with your display and show off your personality!
