It began Friday night with a wine & cheese opening reception from 5 to 7 pm, and the items remained until 4pm the next day. I could start setting up at 3pm on Friday, and I needed to pack it up at 3:30 on Saturday.
I did a trial run set up on my dining room table at home, so I wouldn't need to make any critical last minute decisions. I took a couple extra necklaces and an extra tray, just in case. I also bought a set of bed risers (I saw this idea on other jewelry blogs), to raise the level of the table a bit, to make it easier for people to look at the jewelry. The store manager loved that idea so much, I left the risers for her to use.
My set up is very beige on purpose, so that my dark brass jewelry shows better. I also transported and displayed jewelry in trays. This was due to only having 2 hours to set up and very little time (30 minutes!) to tear down.
