"I use ABCcanopy. It's really sturdy and only a couple hundred dollars. This will be its third year of use. I also work by myself, so I have to set it up and take it down on my own. However, other artists are generally more than willing to…"

"A little explanation: If you notice, the tent to my left has moved 12 feet into the street. As it got blown by the wind, it hit the corner of my booth and the whole thing went over. The tent to my right, which looks OK, while we were standing there,…"

"Yes, the tent is our friend. Artists must hug their tents, regularly :-) Yup, I use the same technique. I hug mine. I wonder how many other artist see me doing it and wonder :-) Also look at the "hard piece" they have in the bottom of the…"

"Kathleen, That Undercover is easy to put in and out of the bag. Here is the way I do it (and I have a terrible back)... Roll the tentbag to the center of your booth spot. Stand it up on it's base. Remove the sidewalls from their pocket. Unzip…"

Kathleen J. Clausen commented on Eric Nance's blog post Tent information
"I use an Undercover, which is a much sturdier type of pop-up with aluminum parts.  If someone helps me get it out of and into the bag, I can set it up myself. I use water weights which I can fill at most art fairs, with some sand-filled smaller…"

Barry Shandler commented on Eric Nance's blog post Tent information
"I had a lite dome and a craft hut for 30 years. They are good rugged tents. The problem is I got old and also lost my help. I grew to hate them. I got a $200 Eur Max and three stablizer bars and the 25 # weight wags. I love it. Sets up in 10 minutes…"

Tent information

Goodmorning Art Fair Insiders, my name is Eric and I am new to outdoor art fairs. I am looking for information on 10x10 pop up tents. I need a tent that I can put up and take down by myself and I do not need the most expensive. I am looking for brand names so I can review.

I live in the Charlotte, North Carolina area and if any one within 125 miles or so has a used tent for sale let me know by email.

Thank You

Eric
