Hey guys! I recently built some new craft displays that I am completely in love with – one of them is this folding check-out stand. I took some snaps and IG stories and mashed them all into a quick video to give you the low down on how I built it.
I’m not gonna go through a bunch of instructions here, I put most of them in the video, so grab a pen. Other than that, it really just takes some figurin’ and thinkin’ about what size will suit you best based on the fairs/handmade markets that you attend. This check-out stand is 4 ft wide by 2 ft deep – I’ve been in spaces as small as 5×6 and as big as 10×10 and I think this size works nicely for both. This thing breaks down beautifully. I put the whole thing in between some moving blankets and wrap with a bungee cord, then use a dolly/handtruck to transport. It’s also super sturdy. The interior shelves keep the folding part open enough and the trim on the top keeps it all tight and snug together. I do wish I had used thicker shelves on the inside, just because I end up putting my feet on the bottom shelf when I’m sitting on my fold-up stool. I can always get thicker ones but that would make it heavier so… I just need to stop doing that. The current shelves hold the weight of everything I need but that’s another thing to think about when you are planning for your own.
Okay, here’s the video:
Pin it for later:
I also mentioned a “card wall” in the video that I was making at the same time – I’ll have the info for that in a few weeks…? But here’s a quick peek:
