I have done just one outdoor art festival each year for a few years now and should have invested in a tent but instead rented/borrowed.  Now I want a really good deal on a quality 10x10 white show…Continue

"Thanks Terri. I’ve done only one outdoor show a year in the last few years, so not willing to spend a lot of money. Sounds like you have a good alternative to more propanels. I’ll look into it."

Looking for canopy and mesh wall advice

I am considering buying a used 10x10 Flourish Trimline canopy with mesh walls; but it’s still expensive at the discounted price of $1200. I rarely do outdoor shows and not ready to invest so much, so am considering a Eurmax from Costco. Have only 4 black propanels so looking for solutions to hang my paintings without spending a lot of time DIYing. So, I need either more propanels or mesh walls that will fit. Anyone have experience in this? Feeling a bit overwhelmed with options and trying to…See More

I have done just one outdoor art festival each year for a few years now and should have invested in a tent but instead rented/borrowed.  Now I want a really good deal on a quality 10x10 white show tent with four walls.  Sturdy, clean, no leaks.  Could use a few more pro-panels as well - I have 4, would like 5-6 more, also in good condition.  Thanks.See More
