For the dealers and guys that do shows and conventions, what do you do use to setup wall books?

Didn't find it on pinterest.....I did see lots of good setups, but I don't want to be storing a massive structure I made for myself. Since this might only be a one-time deal I'm looking at different grid walls, as well as cardboard bin displays which are quite cheap.

I live in suburbia and have had great luck with weekend yard sales, getting great money for books or doing local swap meets. With advertising on craigslist and Facebook, I have had no need to do a show.

Thanks, I see it now...technology :P

You guys have both good setups, Brian's is more what I'm looking for - smaller scale. Is this something that's built the day of the show, it looks like you have a base with the grids that screw into the wood on the end? How long does it take to setup/tear down?

It takes me like 5 minutes from pulling the ends out of my van to putting the racks on the hooks that's it... :thumb:
