Carol Boucher replied to CM Fox's discussion Eaton Canopy Weights vs Happy Feet Weight System?
"Hi all, We love the Eaton weights. We do the same thing as Bo, attaching our ProPanels to the canopy frame, but we use 60 pounds per leg(four Eaton weights per leg).   No problem to zip up the tent; we have a Craft Hut, and when necessary we…"

What is your website?
http://www.carolboucher.com
What are the best things about art fairs
Art=Life=Art; one on one connections with real people who buy real art...and yes, it's hard, honest work!
Best show ever and why
Small show that netted me 5 figure sales for the first time...made all that hard work and time spent worth it!
Worst show ever and why
Microburst funneled down the street right at three booths, ours being the first corner one...holding and pushing against the wind, thinking my tent corners would buckle and we'd cartwheel down the street... Learned to use sta-bars and more weight; screwing into pavement didn't help. Things you cannot control-like weather-are a reality at any show.
