Sales booth available for free




Here are the details from Chris Chiwa Clark‎:

For Free - My loved sales booth -

This is a great sales booth for someone selling wall work. I have used it on the Concourse at the Cellular Center for years during the Guild Show (6’ x 15’), and downstairs at the Guild show before that as a 10X10, and outdoors as a booth under a tent as well. It is made of about 15 hollow core doors (2 are solid), put together with hinges. The doors are 80” tall and vary from 15” to 2 ‘. There are two wooden bars that go across the front for lights, that can be placed on a triangle of doors for more display and support. It can have two corners of 3 shelves.

You can see one corner of shelves in the picture below. The rug is available as well - a Pier One import of long ago - It is rattan and in 1 ft. squares - so it can be configured to your booth as well.

I have used it and loved it for over 30 years (it was made by a woodworker friend up in MA) I would love to see it have more years as a display booth.

It is being lovingly stored right now at a friends place in West Asheville. E-mail me if you are interested… Chiwa chiwaz@earthlink.net
