Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Two years ago I bought a used 10’/15’/20’ extra tall Trimline tent.  I am selling all but the 10’ tent.  Basically you can take these parts and create a 15’ or 20’ tent from your 10’ Trimline.   You will need to add sides.  I traded all the extra long sides for regular length sides and I am keeping the sides except for the 5’ sides for the 15’ one.  There are both regular length 5’ sides (brand new two years ago) and extra long 5’ sides (came with the original used purchase) The pieces are there to either make an extra tall tent or a regular height tent.    I have put up the 15’ several times but I have never put up the 20’.  I understand from the person I purchased the tent from that the 20’ top has a leak and a broken zipper so may need some repair or replace. 

Also comes with a 5’ x 3’ awning (add to your 10’ x 3’ awning to have a 3’ awning on the 15’) and a 5’ x 10’ awning.  There are some pieces that attach between the two awnings to make it one big one but there appears to be one missing.  The 15’ tent has the parts on the top hardware for an EZ riser kit.  All you need to do is add a sta-bar section and you have an EZ riser.  No sta bars included except for the 5’ piece that you can add to your 10’ tent stabars to have stabars on the 15’.  There are brackets for stabars.  I also have the reinforced top pieces that come with the extra tall tent if you want to go tall.

It’s not in bad shape but it is not in great shape.  Invest in some WD-40 for the poles.  If the top has ever been washed it is because it rained at a show.  The 20’ pieces were put in the shed and have never been removed.  $300 takes it all.

Also for sale ($50 each)

3 38” x 7’ ProPanels in light grey.

2 30” x 7’ ProPanels in light grey.  One 30” has the super adjustable feet.  All others have the regular feet. 

Pick up in Louisa, Virginia.  Sorry I cannot ship.  I am a couple hours away from Northern Virginia and an hour away from Richmond.

Hi Alison - Staci and I would buy the 3 38” x 7’ ProPanels in light grey if they are still available.  We'd be happy to pay you now if you could bring them with you to Arlington.  If you need them out of the house now, we'll have to pass.

I don't need them out of the house but I have no room in the van for them since I had to put in the extra shelf.  I think they will fit in the Pathfinder.  I will talk to Clif and see if he will give up driving the Jeep and drive the Pathfinder to Arlington.  Otherwise I am just a couple hours away from Arlington....

Okay - If it works out for Clif to bring them great. (Let me know how you want to get paid.)  If not, I don't think we'd be able to get to Louisa given our dog sitter, schedule, etc.  If you get a firm deal from someone else we'll bow out.

Tent is sold.

Staci reminded me that we could pick up the panels on our drive back north in March. We're setting up for a show but I can email the date later this afternoon/evening.
38" panels are sold. 30" panels have a potential buyer that will let me know Tuesday.
All sold
