i'm looking to sell jewellry at a craft fair/ farmers market in the spring, and i need a cheap, but decent looking way to set up a booth. i was thing of two rectangular tables in an L shape, and a tarp overhead, but i'm unsure about how to set up the tarp over the tables. my main problem is i don't have a big truck or anything to take the stuff there, it'll need to fit into a car somehow. has anyone ever tried a set up like this? any problems you can see, or suggestions to make it better?

I don't know what your definition of "cheap" is, but you can get an EZ-UP canopy at Walmart for $93.

cheap as in things i may already have around the house. in canadian that tent would be about 120-130 if our walmart even carries it, and from what i've heard about the ez-ups it may not be the best investment. i'm trying to figure out a way to put up a tarp above my two tables, without it interfering in the way i'm diplaying my wares. any ideas, anyone?

maybe you could invest in some PVC pipe... then you can make a frame your self and put some fun fabrics on it to cover! its more fun then a blue tarp...  Smiley

instead of a tarp, you could use one of those backyard tent/canopy things. i don't know what they're called.

For my first Farmer's Market I borrowed a tent from my father-in-law. It was small anough to fit my car. The tent was a pain but it is another story. If you find a tent, you can use the wall space to display your jewellry. Buy a kind of foam board for 7 dollars, cut it in 3 or 4 pieces, make for them fabric cases (like pillow cases) and hang them. If you have a corner booth or an empty space next to your booth, you can put jewellry on the both sides of the board.

A good idea - practice to put your boot on your back yard or in a big room in the house. I helps you to visualize your booth.

Good luck!
