why this is the most helpful craft show guide.
Things You Really Need When You Exhibit Your Work
We've discussed this subject quite a bit at Guild
meetings; the beauty of belonging to a Guild is being part of the
exchange of ideas and information.
You'll probably think of other things
to add to this list:
car: within easy reach store a can of
Flat-Fix"!, a flashlight with new batteries, maps, and clearly written
directions to your destinations, and on the reverse side,
write the directions home. It' s hard to think
clearly when you're tired, and it' s dark,
when you're in unfamiliar territory!
In your cashbox:
a copy of your show application and contract with the
promoter This will save arguments about what you paid for, i.e.
electricity, an indoor space, 1 ½
spaces, etc.- and your Check-Off List.
Cash: $50 in singles, $30 in fives, rolls of coins,
total, -adjust to suit your needs.)
your toolbox or
Your Tax Certificate, tax tables, calculator,
ball-point pens, e xtra pricing labels, pads of
sales slip, plus
(In NY State you must have
your tax certificate in plain site )
cards - lots of them! They are very inexpensive advertising.
ü 3 x 5" cards - for emergency sign
replacement, and to track diminishing supplies, etc.
pins and tacks, to hold your display fabric in place,
especially the corners of your display table.
ü Duct tape to hold electrical
cords in place, clear tape, and masking tape to hang things
on walls without leaving adhesive mess behind, or removing paint!
üUtility knife, (a small,
disposable one, with a break-off tip that's always sharp, about 99
rag or cloth, Handi-Wipes,(look for the special packages that
sometimes come with a small, refillable travel-pack,) or a
damp wash-cloth in a baggie.
pack of tissues, pocket comb, band-aids, aspirin, decongestant,
medication, antacid, anti-itching creme, eye lubricant, etc.
board, sand paper or emery paper.
five cedar shingles,(- they break apart) or use
small pieces of paneling or plywood (about 3 x 6" ) to serve as shims
to steady your display on uneven ground.
üSpecialty tools and small parts
for emergency repairs or customizing.
screwdriver, small hammer.
of the above items can be stored in a small toolbox or fishing tackle
borrow from your toolbox and you'll be ready for each show!
A dolly or a handcart; don't walk back and
forth with one or two boxes; you. ll be exhausted by show time. Dollies
and hand-carts are inexpensive, ($20 +/- for a lightweight
take-apart convertible one.)
What About Lighting?
will you do if the light bulbs are burned out overhead and you have to
set up in a dark corner? --If they can't see it , they won't
Even if you're not
in a dark corner, lights make your display sparkle and everything looks
you are not ready for a commercial lighting system, pack a box or old
4 or 5 clip-on type lamps
(about $7-8 each) 40 watt bulbs, and an assortment of
extension cords,(at least 30-40 feet, total, including at least one
heavy duty cord), a 3 to 2 adapter,
and a multiplug, (or two.)
Do a run-through and try them. There are new plugs that
won't work well with older types of sockets, check it all out. Take
extra adapters to solve problems with your hook-up. Use duct-tape to
cover your extension cords and tape them to the floor so no one trips
. Don't forget to pick up all your tape when you
cover the following Eastern US States:
