"Nice review. Accepting the good and the bad is part of the game. I have just started offering prints, am very new to this in general, and already see the need in a varied price point to fit all demographics who enjoy art but can't afford…"

"Gotcha! At a regular show I do I sometimes have a neighbor that doesn't show and I am on a corner with a nice side view so I am trying to consider all angles just in case. I might give my pallets another look over to see if they would cover…"

"Mine are not double-sided since they are usually against the neighbor or I have my white walls up. Generally there is no walk room between tents. These could easily be hinged together to make a 3-panel free standing unit that could be double sided."

"Hi Mary- Thanks so much for sharing this idea. I saw someone do this in an article online too. I was thinking of framing up a similar structure and adding carpet. I would like that to fold though and be double sided so that I can show off both sides…"

"Kelly I understand you desire to save costs. However the convenience, longevity, portability, reliability and presentation of the Flourish panels, may in the long run, be the most cost effective option. A) Packaged they are only about 58" -…"
