So then I started to dream, I believe dreams are important in a persons life. To dream the impossible, make it probable then make it real. I started to get the idea that maybe I should go to trade shows and use pop up booths my teacher had them and she sold a lot of her work supplementing not only her income but also keeping her dream alive. Teaching was just a way to do what she loved. But then I got sick and my dream was put on hold. I just recently got back to my pottery and to my delight the clay still speaks to me, I am dreaming again.
Recently I have been looking at a trade show pop up because they are so easy to put up like an EZ UP canopy or an accordion. You can get the wall and make the space you are assigned totally yours , I saw some with lights, shelves, monitors and even table top displays. When ever I have gone to art shows , job fairs and even car shows I have seen these trade show displays. I am just amazed at how easy they are to put up and customize to my wants and needs. I worried that I would have to buy a truck or van just to transport my walls until found the pop up displays they are so easy to transport and set up. The frame opens up and you hang panels to the frame and that's it! For anyone that needs it they can convert the case into an instant podium by attaching fabric and a wood top. I was thinking I could use it as a display for one of my pieces.
My son is currently a music major in college and is a part of a quintet, they hire themselves out and I was thinking that if I got the back lit pop up which is like a giant light box we could share it (as long as we didn't need it at the same time). There are also bubble kits and 3D pop up displays but I am not sure these would fit our needs except that the 3D pop up displays are the easiest to set up so they are worth looking into. It would be really neat to have one with mirrors or pictures like a billboard if it was done right, The important thing is to have an attractive display so you attract attention and get people to your booth and I am convinced that pop up trade show displays are the most affordable answer for me.
