Antique Booth Ideas: Using The Center Of Your Booth

What Is In The Middle Of Your Antique Booth?

If you sell antiques in a booth in an Antique Mall you know that space is very precious to you. Here is an important question....what does the middle of your booth look like? Some dealers like to keep the middle of their booth open and airy, encouraging people a good view of the contents of the booth. But you can also gain more display space by using the center of your booth in a number of clever ways.
Creating A Center Aisle In Your Antique Booth

With proper planning, you just may be able to create plenty of walk around space and still utilize the center of your booth effectively. Many dealers have created a center aisle in their booth using narrow shelves and or tables which essentially cut the booth into two halves. This idea works well when you have a full booth which can support a center divider made of low and open shelves. Remember you do not want to make the center aisle to tall so that visitors can not see whats in your booth.

Using The Middle Of Your Antique Booth With One Main Shelf Or Fixture

An alternative to creating a row of slender shelves in the middle of your booth is to add just one shelf in the center of the booth. You can angle the shelf as is shown in the second picture or use one central fixture which can be accessed from all angles as is shown with the pink wide shelf shown in the bottom picture.
