New Booth

 We debuted our new art fair booth last weekend at the Spring Green Art and Craft Fair. We thought our old booth was a little too deep and cave-y. Along with wanting to make it more cozy, we wanted to lower the shelves, since most people are not comfortable lifting pots off of the top shelf, and create a place to display plates, platters, and wall boxes.

Here's our old booth at last year's Driftless Art Festival. 

We put a plan together, pushed our dining room furniture into a corner, and Joe started making it happen.  It's great to have a handy dude around! We are lucky to have access to beautiful hardwoods to use in our building projects.

Here is our new craft fair booth. It's a little hard to tell from the photo, but the shorter back wall is about two feet in front of the back wall. We originally designed it so that the gap between the walls was smaller, but when we set it up in our living room, it seemed too tight. But when we got set up at the fair, we reconsidered.  So...we will probably expand the short wall later this summer.
We had a great time at the Spring Green Art and Craft Fair--
sent lots of pots to new homes, brought home a second-place award, and met fun new artists

Did you make those shelves? They are awesome. So simple, with lots of show room. I like the openness of the design. I've gotta make me some.

I really like your new booth set-up! My booth looks your old booth, and in serious need of...pizzazz! Looks like you hit the nail on the head with this!
