Pitch a Portable Tent
Before you get started, always check event guidelines for covering booths and tents. That canvas enclosure is your festival home for several days, so you want something sturdy and weather-proof. The best setups are lightweight and easy to transport from self storage units to festival locations. That portability needs stability in case of windy weather, so include weights and bungee cords in your tent-pitching inventory. You'll also need sturdy tables, quick-mount shelving, lighting and extension cords.
Show Off Your Best
Your festival booth serves as a gallery for your very best work, so plan a layout that really shows it off. Raise your goods in the public eye by elevating table legs with PVC piping. Display framed art and photography against neutral-colored walls, and showcase pottery and sculpture on pedestal displays. Position larger pieces of everything at the back of your booth to draw in appreciative buyers. Keep exhibitions customer-friendly with plenty of aisle space that encourages browsing without creating foot-traffic jams.
Invite Them Inside
You want the festival crowd to know what you offer with a quick glance at your inviting booth. Make it happen with signage that reflects your artistic style. Express a vintage take on jewelry with the right font, or announce contemporary quilting talents with bold colors. Catch the attention of people with colorful fabric and natural textures inside your booth. If the weather behaves, throw down patterned carpets that entice visitors into your creative domain. Make them feel welcome, and they will respond by making you their newest favorite artisan.
It's fun to turn your talent into a revenue stream, so go with the festival flow, and launch your success in the Crescent City. Whether you wow crowds at the Bastille Day Fete or show off your best at the French Film Festival, keep it all organized with our convenient, affordable self storage units. You can always depend on Safeguard Self Storage here in New Orleans to keep your artistic endeavors festive.
