Opened TODAY and runs through Saturday at 5pm at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Hillsboro. Here are some pics of the signs that I took to the show:
Not sure how well I like how I have it set up, but not sure how ELSE I could do it either!?!?!
I sure two of the 8′ tables set ‘back to back’ to create one large square table; with a shutter facing outward on each of the four sides.
I’ve got too many signs to really use the shutters to HANG them on; except for the little bit of extra room ABOVE the ones ‘stacked on end’.
Had to take some of the really long ones and just pile them in a tub; and/or prop them at the end of the tables. (can’t hang things on the wall of this facility!)
I’ve got this one small ‘tiered’ stand that helps a little for some of the small signs.
I’ll take an inventory again after the show to see which signs sold the best and probably weed out some that didn’t sell well for the next show. (AND I’ll have some ‘holiday themed’ signs for the fall show to make room for)
Keeping the ‘piles’ in order will probably be a challenge. I’m sure they’ll get mixed up as people look through the stacks.
Short or actually ‘building walls’ to display them on, this was my best guess. Plus I have to be able to HAUL my display pieces in my car!
And that’s IT for my items at the show!!! NOTHING like what I used to do. But that’s life! My bad back is just getting too old to haul as much stuff as I used to!
So get in while the gettin’s good! Open 10am – 8pm Wed Friday and 10am – 5pm Saturday.
***HELPFUL HINT: If you prefer to AVOID the crowds, shop in the evenings!
