Looks great, Greg. Those mosquitoes look like they are almost actual size! I’m looking forward to meeting you at Festival Acadiens in Lafayette in October, if it works out this year.

Nice looking set up. Glad to hear it was a good show. I like the idea of the knock down shelves I am trying to come up with a new display for some of my stuff. Hope you don’t mind if I borrow some ideas.

Very impressive booth layout. I have been following your work for a while and you set a high standard that is truly admirable.

It seems the booth displays are always in transition. Never completely happy with mine.. Very nice shelves

Watching you progress in your work and displaying your work has been a joyful experience. Is the corrugated tin heavy? I know you can coil it. You must have a pretty large trailer?
I’m pleased to hear of your financial success which finances your fun. LOL!
Be careful on the ice. Hey did you take any homemade gumbo with you?

What a great setup! I made me want to wander in and see what you have!

What do you use to make the corrugated tin walls stay up?
I am considering doing craft shows myself.

Greg, looks like you seek as much perfection in your display set-up as you do in your boxes and shelves. Like everything you seem to strive to make what you make better and better. Nice job, great booth.

Thanks much everyone…!The corrugated panels are actually lightweight. I got them at Lowes and they were only about $10 each. I have 15 of them. They come in 8 ft. length and I had to cut them to 7 ft. I made them easy to hang on the horizontal upper poles of the tent I have by making some metal “J” shaped hooks with drilled holes to mount the hooks to the top of the panels. It doesn’t even take 5 minutes to hang them up.
Another thing that isn’t obvious in the photo is what’s under the cloth covered table in the back. It is a cart that adjusts from 30” long to 55” long and folds flat (30”x 20” x 10”) for storage. I made a top that easily makes it my booth “desk” with plenty storage underneath. This same cart is also what I use to move everything from the van to where my booth setup is located.I don’t use a trailer. I have a Ford E350 Super Duty Van and it is easy to fit everything in.
I always work to create new design pieces and I also do my best to closely duplicate pieces that sell

Greg, is the cart something you purchased or designed and built?
