hi. I'm looking for some good ideas, designs, concepts for a new
indoor/outdoor display for my pottery. Need to display both on shelves,
pedestals, whatever some flat surface) and I need to hang things on wall.
Anybody out there know of any good resources, ( other than going to shows
and looking at other people's booths, which I will be doing) like magazines
or articles to aid me with booth design.
thank you very much. bonnie

I think you would be better off seeing the ACC show in San Francisco this
August. Lots of booths and people to talk to.

In our area, there is a "store store", that is, a place that sells
the kinds of shelving etc that you see in every store you shop in.
I bought something there called a "display grid system", which is
a set of 2 ft wide (varying heights) panels made of 1/4" steel grids.
This is basically like what shopping carts are made out of and it is
STRONG but amazingly light and easy to handle. The panels fasten
together in configurations limited only by the imagination. There
are all kinds of shelves, lights, and accessories that hang on the
grid. You can easily hang pictures as well. I am completely sold
on this system and it didn't cost an arm and a leg either.
This is a challenging design problem. I'll be interested to see
what other kinds of suggestions people have.

Jan, I would be interested in finding out more about this; can you tell me
the name of the product and where it might be purchased? I don't know that
we have a "store store" here in Greensboro, NC. We do have Home Depot and

Who is the manufacturer of this system? It would help in locating this
display system in our geographic area. Thanks

I've purchased many grids for my companies trade shows, and I've been
able to purchase used grids for a very low price.
By the way they go up very quickly using cable ties (we've been able to
avoid union carpenters with this) and come down quickly as all you need
to do is use a pair of side cutters and snip.

Grand and Benedicts, Inc. here in Portland, OR, USA sells the grid system
you are looking for. A bit of a ways from NC, but if you don't find it
locally, you could call G&B at 1-800-547-7005 and request a catalog. I
believe they do mail-order.
