Topic tags/keywords: craftshow canopy

I just wanted to pass this little find along you all of you that will be joining me in the craftshow scene this year. I found this deal today and thought that you might want to know about it.

MCSports has the following going on right now:

10’x10’ Quik Shade Canopy on sale for $69.00 (normally 99.00)
But if you go online to and clip on the weekly ad you will get a 20% off almost anything in the store coupon.

So, you can get a 12’x12’ Quik Shade Canopy for $79.00. Colors are Blue, Green, and White.

For those not familiar with shows it is best to only purchase a white canopy. Some shows will reject vendors with any other color. Also if you plan on doing more than a handfull of shows I would suggest investing in a professional canopy. I’ve seen more than a few cheap canopies flipped inside out by sudden gusts of wind. They’re also not the most watertight.

BTW I’ve been doing shows ( both indoor and outdoor) for 5 years. My first tent was an top of the line ez up and it lasted for the first 1 1/2 years. I still have it but it leaks like the exxon valdeze and is a bit rickety. I now have a craft hut which ran me 900 but I don’t have to worry about it ruining my product.

Just my .02

The other problem I see with this canopy is it’s 12×12 most fairs sell 10×10 space.

I missed the sale. They are all double that price or more.
