Pics of your tent set-ups :)

Starting to think about the upcoming show and festival season, and I'm ALWAYS looking to tweak and improve my tent display.  Love to see shares/links of your tents for inspiration and more ideas.  Particularly if you offer other arts and crafts in the same tent as you offer henna --- I have so many different items, it can be a challenge to display them all to their advantage.  Love to see what you've got going on!  Thanks!!

Re: Pics of your tent set-ups :)

I've got a few pictures of our various Renaissance Faire set-ups on my Facebook page (looking for pics of our street festival booth):

When we sell other items, we display them by hanging them from the walls = easy to see, hard to steal.  However, henna is our focus and anything else can become a nuissance, especially without a booth babe to handle transactions.

 Here are photos of my set up at the California Poppy Festival.

I will be adding more to my booth for this years festival, signage and such.  For a starter booth I thought it looked pretty professional.

This is my flickr set of my booth.  I change it a bit each year.

Re: Pics of your tent set-ups :)

Thanks for the pics and inspiration!  (here is a shot of my booth at the Hiawatha Music Festival last summer - please excuse the Scotsman posing in front - lol).  New ideas this year include adding more sheers in multi colors to blow in the wind, maybe some hanging beaded ropes (like the ones in your last pic Blurberry), chair covers, and maybe some velvet table covers...  Trying to come up with interesting and space-saving ways to display my miscellaneous arts and crafts...  Keep pics and ideas coming!!  Thank you!

Remember that fabrics and pretty-hangy-downies may look nice wafting outwards in a breeze, but can cause problems when they waft back in.  We stake ours down at the bottom at an outward angle to make sure they don't billow into people, wet henna, etc.  It is also helpful to use clamps to secure your table coverings to the table.  Small ones can be arranged within the fabric in a way to keep them hidden from sight and the fabric (and anything on the table) perfectly in place if the wind picks up.

Re: Pics of your tent set-ups :)

I stake my sheers as well.  I purchased 6 ft chain link fencing stabilizer.  they're thin light weight long flat pieces of metal.  I slide them into a sleeve on the fabric and use dog ears to keep them in the ground.  I love bull dog clips.  Buy them in various sizes at the office supply store.  They clip to the tent and with some bungees or zip ties are great for hanging stuff off the tent.  If you sew or know someone who does, I recommend making fitted table covers.  I have them for my tables and they do not blow off in the wind.  I just pop a piese of festive fabric on top and the table is secure and well dressed.

Thanks for the tips on staking down the sheers and "hangies" - tell me more about these fence stakes?  About how much do they run?  And I agree on the bulldog clips - I have TONS of them.  VERY useful.

I've sewn a string tie to each corner of my table cloth and just tie it to the legs of the table.    Large safety pins have proven valuable to me more than once.....

Re: Pics of your tent set-ups :)

they come in two lengths and you can buy them in the chain link fencing area of any large home improvement store.  I think mine were around $6
