art show tents

If you are going to be doing outdoor art shows I recommend getting a good
tent. I used a KD canopy for years but was always concerned in wind and
rain. I was lucky that it never damaged anyone else's work or even worse
an art patron. I polled other artists and ended up choosing a Craft Hut
from Ft. Myers, Fl. While no tent will withstand a tornado, the Craft Hut
stood up to some severe storms and if properly weighted and tied down it
served very well. I suggest 4 walls with a door panel in two of the walls
for versitility, a "back room" addition, and two sun awnings. There are
other good tents out there but I've been very happy with Craft Hut. Nice
people, very accomodating and reliable.

Weights are very important as are good tie downs. Good luck. Candace
