Market season starts 1 week from today at the Hyde Park Market!
I have big display changes planned.
Well, new to me. I bought it used from a nearby metal artist who had only used it once. It's an "E-Z Up", which is what a lot of vendors use.
My husband and I set it up in our yard today to make some final adjustments.
This new tent weighs A TON but is amazingly easy to set up and take down, much easier than my old tent.

Plus, my old tent, shown on the right, is light brown. I'm thinking a white tent will flatter my merchandise more than a darker color.
Well, what we needed to figure out today was tent weights. The previous owner had 4 cement-weighted pvc pipes made to go with her tent, but hadn't needed them for the one show that she did, so hadn't devised a system of hanging them.
A trip to Home Depot was first on the agenda this morning, then a rummage around the tool box.
Plastic coated wire attaches to a carabiner, which clips on to the tent.
Then it's secured to the tent leg with a Velcro strap.
That should do it! And no worries about appearances-- merchandise will hide it all.
