Setting up for The Originals Ottawa Christmas Craft Show.
Today was the change over day at The Originals Ottawa Christmas Craft Show, the day when artisans who signed up for the first four days of the show are replaced by those, including us, who signed up for the last six days. The vast majority signed up for the whole show, and this day was a day of rest for them.
Our assigned booth, #305b, is, as promised, a 10' by 10' space with black drapes on three sides, and electricity hook-ups available.We set up by first laying the floor and then adding the shelving units. A table and two chairs were next. Julian, our eldest son, helped with the set up. It looks not too bad, and quite in character with the other booths.
There are around 200 booths in the Exhibition Hall. This is a shot of deserted aisle #3. We hope and expect it to be packed with customers for the next six days.
This shot is of the left-hand side of my booth and some of the 80 or so baskets on display. There is a storage area near by where we can keep additional material.
