"I'm in the same boat.  I don't think there is anything wrong with going with a cheaper tent when you first start out.  LOADS of artists do it.  As long as you know the risks with weather and using enough weight to hold down…"

"Artists are always looking for used but new condition display equipment. If priced right it should sell within a day or so. Things that take longer to sell are priced too high for the market. Whatever canopy you decide on think 45 pounds of weight…"

Yet Another Booth Discussion

Hello all, I am new to the Art Fair Scene.

Maybe this is the year I say I know I tried and I made no money and my art will remain my art. I am aware this is a big…See More

Kyra Richter commented on Larry Berman's blog post I scored a "1" at the Krasl Jury
"I was glad to find this thread. I read it all, and I'm glad my thoughts echoed those of many. How can there be such an extreme in scoring with two people basically voting you as subpar, and two saying you're above average.  I'll…"

I am interested. For that reason I am looking around for a good deal :) I have contacted three people I think. I've also been reading up on booths to see what my best bet is. Cost, material, etc. Because most of my shows will be here in the Midwest and we know how the weather is, I think I have to go for something sturdy, which is more costly, so I have to make sure I am making a good choice.
