tools and boxes


working festivals is not nearly as exhausting as setting up and breaking down your booth. i use many tools and trinkets during setup, so i carry a stocked tool box with everything i need for quick access. some items include:
  • chain for hanging things off the tent frame
  • wrench & screwdriver to open up chain
  • scissors
  • zip ties - all sizes
  • pens
  • S-hooks
  • safety pins
  • clothespins (many, many, many)
  • candles
  • pricing tags
  • receipt book
  • business cards
  • double stick tape
  • magazine for downtime
  • snack bar
when you only have an hour or two to setup before customers start walking by, every minute counts, which means organization definitely counts!
