DIY Folding Market Checkout Stand

DIY Folding Market Checkout Stand

May 2021 marked my first experience as a vendor at local markets and over the past four months I've participated in several shows and pop-ups. I've experimented with a lot of trial and error when it comes to my booth layout and I've learned so much, both from my own experiences and from looking to other vendors for inspiration. One thing I noticed that was missing from my setup was a proper area for customers to complete purchases - a checkout stand!

My goal was to build this checkout stand as frugally as possible while not sacrificing my vision - this isn't always an easy task - but I am beyond pleased with how it turned out! The stand exceeded all my expectations and it's been a great conversation started at markets. It's so eye-catching!
