Summer is the time for craft show tips, and this week I have plenty.
New this week, I have 8 photos featuring booth lighting ideas to help you choose the right lighting solutions for your own display, and in the Timely Tips section, you'll find more information about what you need to consider before you buy lights for your booth.
This week also features 11 clothing display photos from booths at a high-end and very well attended craft show. The vendors at this show are experienced craft show vendors. They are serious about their businesses, and they have a fantastic mix of great products and marvellous displays.
We'll also look at tips for securing your canopy with tent weights. Whether you use a DIY solution or commercially available tent weights, you need to secure your tent in some way to comply with show organizers' rules, and to protect yourself from disaster. We'll examine some tent weights options this week.
8 newly published photos featuring effective craft booth displays help you see the effects of different types of lighting so you can design smart lighting for your own display.
Things to consider before you buy lights for your craft booth.
If you've bought a craft tent for outdoor shows, then you need a way to secure your tent. It's surprising how little wind it takes to send an unweighted tent flying, and that is the last thing you want at a craft show. Here are a few options for securing your craft tent with weights.
