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

As Always, Necessity is the Mother of Invention

As artists, my wife and I are always on the lookout to use a good idea for our art business.  So when we decided that we wanted an aisle sign (a very, very good idea), we started checking the search engines for a bracket that would attach to our tent.  It had to be removable; light weight; and strong.  After several days, we realized there were no ready made sign brackets suitable for art show tents.
Until now.
Being in the exotic wood box and exotic wood jewelry business, we were familiar with wood.  After a few  designs, we finally came up with a perfect way to hang a sign at ninety degrees from a pole.  Whether it’s a round pole or a square pole, our bracket “hangs tight”   And… it comes down in seconds when you need to put up the overnight sidewalls.
Exhibitors might not realize how many times customers “never saw them” while walking down the aisle.   And for the customers who say “I’ll be back.”, an aisle sign is indispensable.  It leads them back to your tent in a very simple, easy-to-see way.  We sell our bracket with a limited one-year warranty made in our shop in Brooksville, Florida.  Come take a look at  Thanks!

The bracket raises the sign well above the heads of any customers.  And it's quickly removable.  The sign (and/or bracket) is not blocking anyone.  See other pictures at

Looks to me like this sign is up at the top level -- none of us are that tall, not even you Bruce. This ad shows the sign itself up out of the way of any pedestrians and not blocking anyone's view. It is the ad copy that you see lower and obviously that won't be there.

We raise our outside sign up above the entrance to our canopy using an extension pole so we do not block the view into our neighbor's booth but is highly visible above the crowd.

And if everyone blocked the view into their neighbor's booth, then we would also be blocking one another's sign. Somewhat like those who sit outside the front of their booth. Now if the sign rose above the canopy and remained within the space it would work well and would take nothing from yor neighbor.
