The Things I've Learned About Craft Fairs

Very small, svelte 2x3' section of a table. No grids or wall backing! I like the hinged shutters: easy to carry, and stands alone without a brace or clamp. Would it fall over?

  • Tammy~Cloverleaf

    At an outdoor show, yes, the shutters do fall over. It you come up with a stand for them, then the wind blows the cards out of the shutters~I speak from experience! Thanks for the board!

    Ditto on the outdoor show. Trying to come up with a way to keep it sturdy.

    Try a hinge at the top, with a wood bar coming down- would give it more support but adds weight.

Jewelry Booth In A Bag: does not work well out of doors if there is wind at all.

    I just tried this at an outdoor craft show. The wind blew my boards and easels right off the table! I ended up using bracelet T bars to lean the boards up instead of the easels.

I like the color splash in the corners and table tops.

OK maybe a little over the top... but you gotta admire this guy.

    My dad made me some. They are much better than concrete blocks!

  • WhatNotGems

    the concrete blocks are tearing my hands up ruining my car trunk and generally driving me nutty!

    Yes, I know. These are so much easier and a much more professional look. I used the concrete blocks for 4years!
