Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Hi Laura, I hope you get response from your question; I have been debating this issue for months! Regarding the tent, I have heard that EZup is a better option than Caravan. Good Luck! Di St. Jacques-Blue
Is it possible to borrow or rent a display so you have a minimal investment for your first show? Where are you located, which is something you should always state when looking for something that is too big or expensive to ship.

Flourish mesh walls caught my eye. I'm a first year fair exhibiter and wanted to go with Trimline tent and propanels as I liked the solidity of them, but they wouldn't fit into my car. So I bought the mesh walls. They are great, the easiest part of the tent to set up and very sturdy. I work fairly small and usually have 40-50 pieces hanging. Solid walls, s-hooks have kept everything stable in fairly high winds. My one complaint is that I can't change the configuration. Looking around at fairs and seeing how people with carpeted panels can change the look of their booth makes me jealous. On the other hand, on clear days I can raise the vinyl walls and the mesh acts as screens, letting the breeze flow through without disturbing the art. Hope that helps.
