If you are planning to replace your Show Off vinyl top & sides I have 1 to sell

I have a brand new, never used, bright white, smells like new vinyl top and 4 walls for a Show Off Canopy. I purchased them about 3 yrs ago and never used them. I decided on a lighter weight pop up type canopy due to a back injury. I'm in the Chicago area and really want to sell these as they are being stored in my living room... The 2 side curtains as well as front and back are split in half with zippers. Included is the vinyl and 36" arms for a 3 foot awning and the canopy top has a zipper…See More

4 Sale complete set of vinyl for Show Off Canopy. Never used

I have a top, 4 sides with the right & left split in half with center zippers. Includes 36" awning, 1 cary bag for frame, 1 cary bag for fabric and spreader bar. The bag for the frame has some scuffs, all the rest is in new condition. All you need is the frame! If you purchase these from show off they come to about $1000.00. I would like to get $500 for everything. I'm in St Charles IL, shipping or meeting up at a show are possibilities..See More

Thanks for your answer Barbara. I have sent the jury fee already, but I am hoping to do Art in the Park in Columbia MO the next weekend, so I will have a decision to make, probably depending on the amount of inventory I have built up by then. I have a show in Webster Groves at a gallery coming up next week so I will do some asking around while there. I'll get back to you if I decide to do Art and Air.
