Hello Everyone,

I want to know how you would handle something that happened this past weekend at a craft show.  I was in the juried section of the arts and crafts show and this portion of the show was indoors.  All booths were 10'x10'.  No one insdoors was required to set up a tent.  Booths were delineated by taped corners on the floor.  Once the booths were set up the tape was not seen.

We did not set up any "walls" between us and our neighbor, nor did our neighbor.  In fact many didn't set up any walls.  (One neighbor was a no show.)  He offered a very different product than us.  The turn our was tremendous and we had quite a bit of traffic in our booth.  The issue is this ... sometimes people would be in our booth, leaning over our table looking into the gentleman's booth at one of his tables.  I am like, what?  really?  You want to stand in my booth and look at my perfectly nice neighbor's goods?

Once, a shopper was standing basically straddling our booths in the aisle.  She picked up one of his small arrowheads and asked, "Is this an Indian arrowhead"  I replied, "I have no idea, it belongs to the man in the next booth."

Has this type thing happened to anyone here?  If so, what did you do about it?

We plan on working up a wall "system" with drapes or curtains to separate us from the next both for future indoor shows where we do not need a tent.  What do you recommend?  Dh is thinking of using pvc pipe with fabric that has a hem in it that the pvc would fit through.

Thanks in advance.

I always use my canopy indoors when the space is 10x10. I just take the top off and use the frame so I can hang the sides. I do this for just the reasons you stated. I then use the top frame cross members to hang my lights. Can't have too many lights.

This way there's no canopy top to look kinda odd indoors.

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