What canopy should I purchase?

My 14 year old Lite Dome sustained considerable damage in a severe storm this Sat. All 4 corner pieces were broken off and many other frame parts were bent. Now my dilema, as many of you have probably faced at some time in your art fair career, is - do I spend megabucks on replacement parts or do I purchase a new tent??? I know the weaknesses of my Lite Dome in wind. I do not have the lower stabilizing bars or the upper corner stabilizers. Also I wonder about the durability of the plastic or… Continue

Images patron purchase check bounced

I am wondering if anyone out there has had the same problem with their patron purchase check from Images in New Smyrna Beach. I had a patron purchase after 3 p.m. on Sunday, therefore a check was not written to me that day. It was supposed to be mailed out on the following Tuesday.

There went my profit. I… Continue
