I read in a few other threads about security that a fanny pack is more secure than a cash box (in general). So I'm looking for something large enough to hold cash, receipts, phone, and whatever else…Continue

"I should also mention that I have more time than money at the moment and so sewing the covers was a decent investment, although it took some time. If I had a bit more money, I would have probably worked a little harder to find used pro panels. The…"

"Thanks Sarah! The panels are made from PVC pipe and PVC connectors. Then a green mesh/plastic fencing is zip tied inside the frame. I'll upload a photo so this makes sense. I bought the frames already made from a woman who used them for local…"

Storing and protecting artwork

I recently searched the old threads and found mention of these neat protective bags, Gallery Pouch (https://www.framedestination.com/gallery-pouch.html). For my smaller work, I place the framed pieces in pillow cases and put those into rubbermaid-like totes. But I was stumped for the larger framed and gallery wrapped pieces. So I ordered a few of these.Unfortunately, before they arrived, I had to pack everything in my studio for…See More

"The new trend is stretchy spandex ones for runners. Not suitable for our use, so if shopping online, make sure it is not one of those. I was looking for something for travel, and tried out a few in a travel store. Not easy to get stuff in and out…"

"I don't keep my phone on me at shows except when I leave the booth. Prefer to not have it on me if it rings, if I miss a call, that's ok. It's in a small basket catch-all under my booth. My bag (not a fanny pack, either, it's on…"

"Thank you! I will look for one with enough separate pockets that my phone can have its own place. I do use Square, so it will need to be handy for transactions. I found one that has a 4th pocket- on the body-side that looks like a good place to…"

" I used to see leather ones at trade shows that had a phone pocket. But now that phones are larger, that option may be harder to find. I use a phone holster than clips to the waistline of my pants. That way, I can use the holster when I am not…"

fanny pack ideas

I read in a few other threads about security that a fanny pack is more secure than a cash box (in general). So I'm looking for something large enough to hold cash, receipts, phone, and whatever else I don't want to misplace.Does anyone have a fanny pack or hip pouch they love? I'd like to purchase something I know will be large enough to accommodate everything.Thanks.See More

Hi,This will be my first year applying to shows, after having shown my work in a small local Art League show last year. My panels are not professionally made, and I know this might hinder me getting into bigger shows, but I'm not certain I'm ready for those shows yet anyway.I have reviewed some of the shots on Larry's website and here and these are the shots I have based on the information I have read so far. I have 3 shots, depending on the type of categories available and the type of show. I…See More
