Eliminate Theft at Art and Craft shows

Theft at shows happens and it sucks! I am getting geared up for my 2011 shows, and one of the things on my to do list is to reorganize my displays to deter theft. I worked in retail long enough to know that shrinkage happens, but when its one of your own handcrafted items, it hurts.

One thing I started doing last year was “hanger management”. I display my handbags on hanging racks. When I sell a bag, I remove the hanger. I notice right away when there is an empty one, and I think my would be lifters do to.

Here is a great article I found in Craft Magazine with tips and tricks.

What works for you? Any additional suggestions? I would love for us all to have a theft free season!
