Booth set up

a few people have asked about our booth set up at Sunapee so i figured i would post some pictures. 

the League of NH Craftsmen sends a jury out to score your booth. my understanding is that your booth score dictates how high up on the list you are for choosing your preferred space for the following year. there are also awards given out for the best booths.

sometimes Jeff has done a carpet, some craftsmen have wood floors that they build on site. we wanted to keep it easy this year so we went with the grass.

the booth is set up so that we can walk behind and have storage space, out of view, between us and the booth behind us... it got messier as the days passed so it's a good thing it was out of view!

Jeff has typically left the booth open in the evening. the fair has very good security. many craftsmen cover the front with a tarp at the end of the day but a few people were using this deer netting that you see above. our booth neighbor Jennifer Mitchell gave us a length of it. it really is only meant to stop people from wandering in after hours and knocking things over. we didn't use it every day because we thought it was a pain. every time we got it strung up we realized we forgot something inside!
more pictures of demo booths in upcoming posts. today we are off to run errands and visit a new smokeless wood kiln that was recently built here in NH... happy saturday y'all!


  1. Thanks for posting, your booth looks great, and I like the grass and flowers in the pots.

  2. Weird, I was just thinking about using Abstracta in my booth. Sarah has some from her jewelry days. Looks great. I hope the show is going well.

  3. Ron - i had the abstracta and we incorporated into jeff's booth a couple of years ago. it allows for some great configuration options but it can be a pain to set up and take down. it either stays together so well you can't dismantle it easily or falls apart when moving it!

  4. Set up looks really good.
