Probably some kind of opaque fabric in the color you intend on making your booth once done. Don't forget to keep the canopy walls down to cut down on backlighting in the event the fabric is not really opaque.

Brad, I use glass display cases that I bought at somewhere like storesupply.com or gershellbros.com.  I think they were about $160 each - glass but no lights inside.  I just sit them on top of my propanel desks.  Prior to having those, I sat them on top of my covered tables.  That is the most economical way to go.  I love arizona cases but they run about $1000 per lighted case.  I thought about both abstracta (too many parts for me)  and dynamic displays (more money than I wanted to spend).  Also I do some shows where I want cases and some shows where I don't want cases so this was the perfect answer for me.

I have a short list of display suggestions for jewelers on my web site:

Just wondered if anyone can give me an idea of what the best and most economical glass case types would be for jewelry at Art Shows ?

Thanks :-)

Hi, New here.

Considering doing art shows as a venue for selling my floral/oceanic jewelry as I live in South Florida

We are thinking the same ... looking more at NY, PA, NJ, OH, DE ... maybe CHARLOTTE (probably not).  Spent lots of time with Sunshine Mag -- and then contacting people to see who is accessible (Chester NJ told us not to come because of accessibility - and so did Monak NY) whereas State College, PA - which we've been told is very hard load/unload has been very gracious and willing to work with us.

Happy New Year, Everyone!

We're working on our 2013 show schedule, too. We live in Philadelphia but have traveled as far as Louisville, Asheville, Chicago, and Florida in the past few years. However, we're thinking of staying closer to home this year. But not 100% sure. Which is why I was wondering if anyone can give any input about the Broad Ripple show in Indianapolis!

Hi there Well it's a new year and it seems I recovered from the Christmas drama of family and show, in the process of planning the new show schedule doing things a bit different this year will see how that goes!!! A little more travel in the beginning if the year I will keep you posted. Not sure if this is posting in the correct place ......
