In the fall of 2017 I decided to resurrect my 'bottle business' and again hit the craft show scene. I gave up the business 9 years prior due to the demand a two-year old can have on one's time and attention. In giving up the business, I also parted with the tent and display that I used to show off my hanging vases. Rule number one: NEVER throw anything away! I loved my old display. . .it packed nice, I always received compliments about it, it was easy to set up & take down. Now I needed to build a new one.
The first big purchase was the tent. In the old days, I would pick up EZ Up tents from Sam's Club for around $100 and replace them every two to three years as they broke or got too dingy. This time I decided to spend a little more money to get a tent that was a bit more durable. I like quick and easy. At shows I would see vendors assembling poles and stretching tops over frames - not for me. I wanted a tent like the EZ Up: EASY to put UP. After some research and reading reviews, I selected the EuroMax tent from Amazon (free shipping, yay!) for $250. Love it!
Black matched the trellises. BLAH!!! The black had to go. And I needed to figure out a better way to display the little tabletop vases. They were lost on the small table. My second attempt at a display was a little better. I switched out the black for a floral print and moved the trellises around a bit.
