I need a sign that I can stick in the ground! That would be great for little events, too!

Hi Cotton Candy! the sign is hand made...obvious cause its sort of rustic but I had two sheets of "foam core' (Really thick light weight poster board) from a student school project and painted my logo and business name on one sheet and glued laminated photo choices on the other sheet. Then with an awl pierced 2-4 holes at teh top and ran packing string through to attach them . To secure the sides I poked holes on the middle edge and ran the string through in a fugure eight. To weight it down I have a small tin can with a wire hanger and fill it with pebbles and clothes peg it to the string between the two sheets of foam core. It works pretty well especially with the weight feature and its ultra light.

Thanks everyone!
Sophie- thought you'd find the final umbrella set up outcome of interest!
Laurie: the wrap is just the packing material that I have left on to prevent extra dings and bangs as I pack all this stuff inandout of my car. The chair is Tall Director Chair from hayneedle.com It only weigs 12 lbs ( one stone). It was $$ but I love it because I paint standing.
I realize the Fat Max needs a fitted cover if I am not working out of it. I do think I need all my STUFF laid out in front of me as It gets lost in all the nocks and crannies in the fatmax sections...FOR now the table (or 2) plus the fatmax, chair, step stool, signs, umbrella and 90 lbs of rock (for weighting base of brolly) works...its not perfect but I dont have enough jobs to perfect the mobility thing.
I did do a private bday party and just took my fatmax -the host provided table and chairs...it worked too....
THanks for commenting! I could not have gotten this far without everyone at the forums helpful suggestions!

Cute! I love the laid back almost 'gypsy' kind of feel! You paint standing huh? That seems like it would be hard, but then again, sitting in a chair hunching over trying to reach little ones for hours on end is DEFINATELY hard on my back and arms and body in general for sure, so maybe I ought to give standing a try. How much do the directors chairs run?

E-Z up has some sturdier ones than the hay-needle one (that one only lasted me a year) They come in a bag, so they can be carried easier, and kept nicer. They do cost a bit more, but they ar a tad taller, and a tad lighter weight-wise. I think it was worth it for me just for the extra height.

Now I don't even unpack my clean sponge bag when I pack up, as it fits neatly inside.

Target has stretchy animal print (tiger/leopard/zebra) & solid color stretchy body pillow cases. I cut the zipper off & stretched it over the top of my chair, and let the guest sit on it--no danger of tot's slipping out the back. If you are really industrious, you can tack a shoe-lace to the front corners as well, and then you won't have to tidy between guests.

I have a dear friend who totally screwed up her back with twisting & painting from a desk-sized chair last year. It's not worth it, and she lost far
more in finances by losing work for weeks, than if she's invested sooner in the equipment she needed!

The aluminum ones are much much lighter than wood directors chairs--but wood ones are a better stop gap than sitting!

Keep your receipt & take it off on your taxes!

I collected some old election campaign signs to make into FP signs for this season, so call your favorite candiate right now, get some signs, and keep them for later...you just need to cover it, or make your own covers from foam core.

You would be surprised what you can get into a little car when you want to. My bizmobile is a prius, and we packed up a 10x10 tent from a festival, with every thing, including the tent, three people, fat max, compressor, signs, everything (two of us were holding stuff) but we did it all in one trip!

Love your sandwhich board!
