I'm doing first outdoor show in a couple weeks... kinda nervous because it's in Miami and the sun might just melt me. Anyway, I sell mostly fine art and prints, and hooped embroidery. At my normal craft shows, I can just lean stuff against a wall so I don't need to worry about the weight of frames making stuff topple. Here's a pic of my last show where we used shutters to hold light stuff - http://www.flickr.com/photos/30497844@N06/5256552352/in/photostream

Now for this one it's a stand-alone table with absolutely no room to put anything on the ground, so no space for a stand-up peg board or anything like that. The shutters I used in the pic above can't hold anything heavy without toppling. I just need some way to get vertical the frames vertical, and I don't have tools or much extra money. I'm going to use crates to stand stuff on like last time, but with too many of those it won't leave much space on the table. Does anyone have tips or links to similar spaces? I know, it's a tough situation haha  Cheesy

Could you add some extra vine-eyes and tie the shutters together in a square to put on your table? You could then put something heavy and bulky inside to keep it in place if it turns out windy.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
