What was your biggest struggle with displays at markets before VL?
“I didn’t know how showcase my products on a table”
Before Crafty Cai discovered Vertical Ledge, her market setup experience was filled with challenges.
As a petite woman, the heavy and bulky market tables proved to be a significant pain point. Cai recalls, "The folding table was heavy," and she often required assistance from her husband to set it up. The difficulties didn't end there.
Cai found it challenging to make her products look appealing on a table, and she expressed her frustration, saying, "I didn't know how to showcase my products on a table." She encountered the common issue of people inadvertently moving her items around, making it difficult to maintain a consistent and attractive display.
Cai describes her pre-Vertical Ledge experience as a struggle. Little did she know that a game-changing solution was about to transform her market booth setup.

This marked the beginning of a transformative partnership between Crafty Cai and Vertical Ledge, taking her market booth to new heights.
What was your biggest selling point?
“I can go and set up by myself”

“I feel really legit”
The impact of Vertical Ledge displays on Cai's market booth was nothing short of transformative. The increased attention and customer engagement kept her coming back for more.
She particularly appreciated how the rack allowed her products, like shirts, to face forward on the rack, presenting them in a more appealing way.
Cai even opted to get the kiosk, not just for its practicality but also because it made her feel more legitimate as a brand.
The results were evident in her market experience, as she recalled the initial reactions from customers when using the cart, exclaiming, "The cart itself is marketing."
The uniqueness of the displays set her apart from others, attracting a significant number of customers who were not only drawn to the cart but also stayed to explore her products.
With Vertical Ledge, Cai experienced a newfound sense of confidence, being able to set up her booth independently and feeling more organized. The overall impact on her brand presentation was undeniable, with the displays attracting people and leaving a lasting impression on potential customers.
