Well, I'll bite.  It's crowded with only two customers.  Couldn't get many more in there with the massive amount of reproductions.  Even the art on the wall is crammed together.

There are so many prints in there that I would just get overwhelmed and not look through anything after the first couple.

Just for curiosity, has anyone organized their flip bin or bins into categories like a
music bin? Just wondering if that narrows the searches down quickly or does serendipity play a major part in browse bin purchases?

Yes, I agree...too much stuff.

As others have said...too much stuff and cluttered. Put out just one or two bins and no duplicates. Keep the excess out of sight.  Then is someone buys one then replace it. make the customer feel like they are getting something unique.

Truth is - they are not unique.

They are not reproductions. They are photographs.

For years I've been advising photographers not to block the inside center of their booth with panels or bins. One or two people looking at the work prevents others from entering and you loose the chance to make sales.

It's just plain overwhelming.

Comment by Tina Pietsch on August 17, 2014 at 9:49pm
Can you say messy? It needs to be appealing to draw you in....people see this and think let's just keep walking....ditto on keeping extra or duplicates out of sight.

Use the walls.  Indicate on each print the sizes it is available in.  Priced "From xx.xx".  Keep the inventory where you can access it easily so the customer gets a copy that has not been manhandled or covered with "Show Dust"....  Bins for closeouts.
