Most of my shows are in Texas and Oklahoma and many are in the spring. That means storms and winds. After chasing earrings down the street in downtown Dallas, I put my thinking cap on and came up with a ‘windproof’ earring display.
It folds, and it can be hung on chains or from hooks or it can sit on a table. Very versatile.
I started with a frame of 2 x2s, then a piece of Masonite was screwed to the frame. A double thick layer of thick quilt filling came next. Then my fabric was stapled over it and since it was a knit, it was slightly stretched.
I then use the heavy black pants elastic for the the hangers. It was stapled at one side and then it was stretched so it would press the cards into the filling. That slight pressure keeps them in place in the wind.
It has even survived the booth collapsing 3 times!
I can give more details on how it was made if anyone is interested.
