Craft Show Tables & Booths

This last weekend I did my first outdoor 2 day craft show at the 3rd annual Slide Rock Apple Festival. Taking on outdoor events meant I had to make some investments in equipment and supplies that would make my space look good.

We bought an EZ-Up Instant Shelter to protect ourselves and the products from the elements. We had some problems with the EZ-Up but I’ll talk about that in another post. Anyway, I am trying to find some ways to make my booth a bit more inviting and eye catching. Yes, that is my booth in the photo….October 6th & 7th 2007 Apple Fest Booth

I found a company online that make custom table throws and table runners. I thought this was cool because you can get your logo on the table! Also, table clothes are a pretty important part of a booths look and feel and they can be hard to come by. I went to the fabric store and bought 11 yards of black fabric just to barely cover my two 8 ft tables for this last weekends show. Anyway, had I known about the custom table throws and runners I would have considered buying my own logo table throws instead.
