Hi Jim - In larger cities (I’m in Seattle), there are companies that sell
display components to retail stores. We have one here called “Best
Displays” that even sells used display items. Not everything you find in
the jewelry supply catalogs will be available, but you may get some good
ideas, if not cheaper displays.
Also, go shopping! Preferrably to places that are higher-end, or at least
creative. Decide what you like and don’t like about the product displays
you see. You can make a lot of things if you take the time to look around,
determine the style of setups you like and then come up with creative ways
to make them happen.
Personally, I don’t like the standard displays offered in most of the
catalogs - they’ve all been done, and they don’t do much for my jewelry,
except make it look like it’s competing with large chain stores that buy
Oh! One more thing… I assume you are selling at a retail show, so if
it’s going to be crowded, and you won’t always be able to keep an eye on
all of your merchandise or all of your customers, consider displays where
the jewelry is somewhat “attached” - easy enough to get off and show
people, but hard to steal. (It’s better to be safe than sorry)…
Good luck and have fun!!!
