Dear anime fashion People, as new seller, I spent some time trying to find example of how people in the past had displayed their items and set up their tables for maximum effect. I found it very hard to find any images or even advice that didn't have to do with registration and transaction which was not quite what I was after and even that was scant. This got me thinking that others were probably having the say trouble. So anime people, the question is, what does a good fashion swap table look like?

This is something that I would like to know as well. It would be very convenient, both to transport and store. Some pieces are more delicate and would require such care. Are we allowed to have those kinds of racks behind us during the event to store the clothes?

I'm not an official staff member but I've been attending both the Nominoichi and then the Fashion Swap Meet since it was first introduced 10 years ago, both as a buyer and seller. Most people who are selling at the fashion swap meet section laid clothing out on their tables, or had pictures of the more delicate items on the table while keeping them stored behind the table in a suitcase/box. I know two years ago when I was selling, someone next to me brought a clothing rack and kept it behind the table, so that's a definitely possibility if you're comfortable lugging it around; so long as the rules haven't changed.
There isn't a whole lot of space behind the tables however, especially ones that are set up around the edges, so just be careful how much you bring that will need to be kept behind/under your table.
If you have an idea to display your clothing for sale but aren't sure if it would be allowed, definitely send an email to the person running the swap meet and get their opinion/approval.
