Right now, my plan for my 4x8 craft fair booth is to have an accordion fold wall along the back edge and a folding table along the front. The table will hold the product and the wall will visually separate my booth from the others and serve as a place to hang print & poster samples.
I have seen a lot of craft fair photos where people have their booth separated with fabric dividers - they are totally effective and pretty, but won't work for my products. I need something that I can nail framed prints onto - not just a visual divider.
I bought two pieces of 4x8 plywood at Home Depot and had them each cut down into two 6x2 foot pieces and two 6.5x2 foot pieces (it's a long story why they ended up different heights). I painted each piece with two coats of primer and one coat of our dresser's teal paint. I then joined two pieces together with simple hinges and then did the same with again and TA-DA - four pieces of wood that stand on their own. (I didn't connect all four together because this thing is way too heavy as it is.)
After that, I went through my house & the local goodwill and found wood frames that I primed and painted white (with wall paint - they are not perfect, but they work). I loaded posters and prints into the frames and hammered them on to my "wall." If I can find a few more frames in the next few weeks, I might be adding to the midddle sections. My felt banner and fabric flower garlands were used to decorate the top. Right now they are taped on. For the actual show, I'll staple gun them into place.
You might be wondering what my storage plan is for something this big. Great question, I was wondering that myself last week. I did some major spring cleaning on Monday to clear out our office closet to fit the odds and ends that have gathered in the corner since the last office purge. Then I moved my work table and bulletin boards over to the right so there was extra space against the wall near the window. The boards fold into each other (with the nails removed and nail holes marked) and then actually are not too space consuming in the corner. I am seriously daydreaming about the day we have a house with a garage. Extra storage AND I won't have to do extensive painting and drilling on our living room floor.
Oh, and obviously I have to make some books and order more posters and prints. And package everything. But we're getting there.
