"We have a used set of mesh walls and Sta-bars made by Flourish. In good condition. Was used with EZ-Up style tent. They are located in Nashville. Have to check with partner on price, but willing to deal."

What are the best things about art fairs
People. Meeting them and seeing their response. And of course, when they buy...
Best show ever and why
The Artists Project, Toronto. Great work, exciting, lots of visitors - and it's inside, which is pretty essential in Toronto in February.
