    Default Question about Craft Fair Display Hacks

    Vendors who have previously displayed at the local High School Craft Fair can request to be placed in a different area of the school as vacancies come up in different areas. I'm happy with the gym where I've got a space but I was staring at the bleacher along the wall and thought....Hummm......if my space was backuped to the bleachers perhaps there is a way I can use the little space between the bleachers to hang several of my quilts and banners for display???

    I can't just slip the top of the quilt into the space and expect it to stay and not slip to the floor but is there a way I can somehow get those quilts to hang?? Anyway if I can think of a way to hang them maybe I'll ask to have my vendor spot moved :-)

    Is there anywhere on the bleachers to hook pant/skirt hangers with the quilts clipped to them?

    Hummm, that's a thought. I'll ask the girl that runs the Craft Fair if that's a possibility. I think I'm going to call her in a few days.

    What if you used PVC pipe to build a temporary frame you could hang things from? The pieces are lightweight and very portable. Cheap if you buy the smallest diameter pipe. Hold the bottom edge by propping against table or chair and lean the top edge back against the bleachers.

    Google "how to build a pvc backdrop frame" for all kinds of free plans

    How about a few broomsticks and those clip on curtain rings. Drop the broomstick over the bleacher seats and the weight should hold everything.

    Large binder clips would possibly work. They come quite large....office supply stores carry them in all sizes.

    How about using some of the Command products? They peel right off and are surprisingly strong.

    Here's a rack from PVC. You can buy colored pipes now, or maybe paint it so it's not so plastic. lol
