I spent ALL day getting ready for this weeks fair

Post by FUNFACTORY on Wed Jul 13, 2011 8:58 pm





I was excited to add some new things like my new mat to keep the line from crowding around me, and my sand bags .
I know sand bags aren't very exciting but I will get to that part. Menard's only had 70# sand bags ,so I made smaller ones with my foodsaver lol! the great part was I covered all four for $.25( love goodwill $.25 day)and no sewing Razz I also got my other banner stands finished I love you got it all set up did a little painting and took it back down and loaded most of it in my car for tomorrow.if anyone has suggestions feel free let them roll.THANKS

the only suggestion that I have with this sort of set up, would be to get tent walls in case of high wind or rain!

Also, it's nice(but not necessary) to get a large rug for the floor of your tent. I just recently picked up one for when I'm selling outdoors(mostly for when I sell my art, but I will use it for faces as well!) and I lay that down first and BOY, it really just makes everything look that much nicer.. plus it kept my chair and table from digging into the ground.

I picked mine up as a remnant from a carpet store.. something outdoors worthy. I just swept it off at the end and stored it behind the couch at home..lol.

thanks Ashley- I do have one wall ,but seems the side I need to put it on for the sun is the same side the wind is coming from and it bows the side of the tent in Crying or Very sad ( I started shopping for a better one)
I
I have thought about a rug ,one festival I pulled the mat from the back of my suv because my chair kept sinking in the ground.

I like your mat, your sand bags, and your banner signs. Are they the ones made up from the small DIY signs on this site earlier. How did they hold up in the wind? Did you make your banners as well or order them.
Glad you had a great day.

Nice setup!

Something you might want to invest in is the "puzzle mats" you use under weight lifting sets. They are wonderful to stand on for long events since they are a cushion when you're on cement & they keep your feed dust free is you're on grass, dirt, etc.
