I agree with Joan. We have IKEA all over the house,
including at least 3000 very heavy books (for light
reading :) held by IKEA shelving. My light-weight
Ivar shelving currently holds another +/-2500 music
books! Look in the "as is" section (bring tools) for
dinged-up stuff you can turn around or fix. The
cheapest stuff (for workshops) is actually one of the
strongest. I use those and have for 25 years (Toronto:
first N.A. IKEA) Some come apart - all or in sections-
very easy for moving.

I also like the idea of cubes and tall cubes(?) made
of particle board to store the stuff safely inside
when on the go. Heavy, though. Velcro them together in
whatever configuration and they're very stable during
the fair/show.
