You can check Sam's Club, Costco, or Walmart for 6 foot tables. I've even seen some now that fold in half for better storage. These are sturdier than the smaller camping type tables that some people use.

I use a 6' tables that folds in half (more for easier carrying than storage) from Lowe's.

I got an office table from Staples. I wish I had called the local schools first; I was able to get a second table as good as the Staples table for $10.  I have two sons to carry them - they're really more than I can manage.  I have a card table which I can manage on my own.  Usually, I just rent the table from the show.

Some of the smaller fairs I have done do offer tables, but with most you have to bring your own. Others offer tables but you need to rent them, so it costs you more if you don't bring your own. Always good to own some.

I've borrowed folding tables, but I've also scored card tables at thrift stores for $5 or $8.

I know you can buy fairly sturdy 6' long folding tables at Target for $20.  Most of these cheap tables are hideous though, so you'll want to drape something over them.

I have a number of sturdy 4 foot tables and one 6 foot folding table, all hard surface and made of a hard plastic. They're about 10 years old now. I got them at Home Depot. (There are no Target stores in Vermont. Not enough people to support them)

I only use the 4 foot and 6 foot tables as my display is vertical and I'm right out in front talking to and bantering with my customers.

As far as draping something over them, those are the rules of any show. You must have a cover that goes to the floor.

There's NOTHING at a craft show, or on Etsy, anybody NEEDS. NOTHING.
