I will be purchasing a canopy and setup for the first time, and am undecided between the Showoff Art Canopy with 3 Display panels, or the Trimline 7ft canopy with Flourish Mesh Panels. Would love to hear your opinions. The showoff has a package for $2,439 (Shipping included) and Trimline will run about $2,370 shipping not included.
Hi, Jennifer - I had a Showoff for years and loved it, though there are lots and lots of parts. I set up by myself (I'm an oil painter) and it was not unusual for set-up to take three hours or more. It's worth saying that I am not a hurrier. I sold the Showoff and bought a LiteDome, and that was far easier, and somewhat faster. Fewer pieces.
Then, thinking I was wrapping up my show career, I sold the LiteDome and bought a EurMax. It is a faster set-up - maybe an hour and a half or so - but I truly don't like it anywhere near as much as the LiteDome. I regret selling it!
So when you are going around looking at shows, I'd recommend also considering a LiteDome. The inside space is lovely!
Thank you! I really appreciate the information and will check them out!
Your work is beautiful!
Thank you! I really appreciate that.
if you are looking to buy black mesh panels I have 3 that I am selling, barely used and in perfect condition. I have the receipt bought for 700 but willing to sell for 500 if you are interested
Where are you located?
oh sorry forgot to mention, Miami but will be traveling to Orlando soon so can meet there as well
Ah I'm in Southern California unfortunately. Thanks though!
Saw someone selling tent, panels and other items in California just today. Think it was Los Angeles area.
what type/size work do you show?
