can "feng shui" an arts and crafts stall?

Many people use the term “feng shui” very loosely, but as a verb the implication is to do something that can change a space to attract more business to the provider. Although you can’t do the same, in any traditional sense, with something like a car, you can evaluate an Arts and Crafts booth, if certain things are in your control.

For example, if a booth is going to be inside a convention center or some indoor environment, the booth will be like a work cubicle, where it is part of the “big picture.” I once had a client who did shows at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium and it was easy to identify the best parts of the building with a readily available floor plan to divide into directional sections. Finding when the building was built is also just a click away on the tax assessor’s website.

Once you’ve identified the best part of the building, there may or may not be a way to tackle the area with elemental remedies, but being in the best part of a building can give someone an “edge” or advantage compared to others. sellers.

Of course, there’s also some environmental psychology at play, as some people like to be near the door and others notice more business when they’re located near food vendors or restrooms. It’s strictly about visibility and sometimes that can only help you improve as a provider.

For outdoor locations, there is no flying star chart to consider. This is the energy field that is captured inside a building. But there may be some outward cues in terms of how best the qi flows. This is where a feng shui consultant would try to determine the best qi flow arrangement, with the corridors between the booths serving as virtual pathways. Yin-Yang theory would also come into play and this includes many things that are common sense, like not being in a dark and dreary area.

With the actual layout of the booth, there are some design tricks that many experienced vendors already know. These are things you can do to attract people to your booth and stay longer. Often a long table is set up on the “front” side of the stall and the items for sale are right at the edge of the perimeter of the stall. There is nothing wrong with this arrangement. But by creating a U-shape where the front side of the booth is open, potential customers are required to literally enter the booth area to see the items for sale on display further inside the booth. This allows the salesperson to have an easier conversation with the customer. This alone can increase potential sales.
