  2. anybody vend art or pinstriping at shows? i've been vending about four years and still have yet to come up with a better than cheesy display.
    i always do pretty well, usually thrown in with the other venders and swap meet guys. i wondered how everybody else's stands look like and the art they sell, post pix please, i know there is talent at these events.

    Hey himjively,

    I vend at 5-10 events a year and I use gridwalls to show my stuff...cheap easy and versatile. Here is where I get mine...

    http://www.valudisplay.com//Product/product_detail.asp?sku=0GWS2BK000000

    Can't find any shots of my setup but I'll keep looking..
     
  7. One suggestion: your banner could use more color.
     
  8. A. Use the grid walls as suggested. Get the artwork vertical. Laying it flat is a sure way to get people to walk straight past your stuff.

    B. I can't work out why the vendors stand under cover while the customer has to stand out in the heat or rain. I prefer to get them undercover with my stuff (I sell rod & custom zines).

    C. Color. Your stand needs to grab people from a few car lengths away.

    D. Dress tidy (i.e. not like a complete ratbag!) and don't wear sunglasses.
     
  9. Dunno if its art....but here's some from Scarlett Fever 2 in San Francisco....

    great show this week guys. cool sign jim. janne, love the little chevy. clysdale, way cool.

    if you want your model a sedan to stand out from the rest, you could always go for the luxury/hotrod look. this one was done for michael overcash. he came up with the design. the build also includes a multi-carbed buick straight 8.

    oO - that's cool as shit! Post an introduction and tell us about yourself. That's pretty fun.

    ZOmbie - WOW. That's kind of inspirational - makes me feel kind of funny in my pants. I'm ammassing Model A parts now and I'm going to look at the back half of a tudor sedan tomorrow ... that drawing gets the juices flowing.

    Instead of a banner I went with a 2'X5' plexi, sprayed the background metal flake then added hand & airbrushed lettering. I hang it on the outside of the tent toward the sun, it gets noticed!. :eek:
     
  30. had to add some more art to get us back on the first page again
    where's everybody else?
