Before you plan what to bring, once you know your assigned space, go look at it. If you are in front of a store and are considering using the wall or windows to tape up some of your art work, ASK the store owner if you can use masking tape and put up some pictures if you clean up things afterward. If you want to attach things to the awning or any other part of the building, ASK first. This community is very welcoming, but you should always ask before you do something.
For your own comfort, you may want a chair, water, sunscreen, and a cap and even a jacket or sweater just in case the wind changes.
For visual attractiveness, you may want to cover the boards or the table. For covering rough finished tables, you may want plastic covers or some other cover, but remember the wind. Bring weights, or tape, or string to secure the covering to the table.
For set up you may need staples, staple remover (for later), push pins, tape, or other removable adhesive, a step stool, or ladder (if you need one) and possibly string or rope and maybe a pair of scissors. Hammer and nails if you hanging something that is framed.
Leave no blank panels. It is important to have something on every panel assigned to you. If you look across the street and see the back side of a panel all gray with nothing on it, people assume that there is nothing there to go to see. Plan to make your area attractive so people are anxious to see what all you have to display.
At clean up time. Remove your SCHOOL SIGN (which will be at your location when you arrive.) Leave it on the table or against the board. (Someone will collect them to be used next year.) Clean all staples, nails, pins, etc off of the boards. Get every staple. The people handling the boards do not want injuries. Leave them free of paper; or other decorative items. If someone is cleaning up for you, make certain they have this information. A crew will be picking up the boards. They will not be able to save art work left behind.
