Brian = $$$$

I can be available for all set-up times and then back in the early afternoon for whatever. If someone is needed in the AM I can probably work something out.

Im going to kind of freestyle it on the walls. I just cant come up with a decent design that will be portable, easy to set up and take down, and stretch 10x10. It'll be good, whatever it is. It will also arrive as a pile of numbered and color coded lumber, some assembly required : )

The sign is done, and 2 of the 3 stands are done.

I discovered a 4' mop handle will complete the card rack, haha.

Oh, and I finally ordered my prints : )

Ok, so:

When are we supposed to be there Friday night?

What exactly are we setting up besides tent and walls Friday?

Was there any word of security overnight?

I will be there for set up on both days.

HBRstudios is a group administrator HBRstudios says:

Registration starts at 5pm Friday -- that would be my suggestion to start setting stuff up. I would not put out artwork until Saturday am.

The info sheets sent say that there will be paid security, but they still don't recommend leaving it out overnight -- I will be boxing mine up and taking it home.

-Snapshot- says:

It is looking like rain on Saturday, sorry.
If it would be of any help I have a nice empty/clean van that I’m offering for the artists to use. At Saturday closing I could come and pick up artwork etc. and store it in a locked garage overnight then return it in the morning, I also have a lot of clean packing blankets that could be used to keep stuff from knocking around. [I put a photo of the inside of the van in my photostream]

If a responsible person such as Brian wanted to take the van that would also be ok.

My only condition to this proposition is: it’s free.

N. Lindstrom Photo is a group administrator N. Lindstrom Photo says:

Oo la la, Brian does love vans. I think it would be a great idea.

I guess I didn't read the memo on sizes/prices, most of my larger pieces are 12x18...oopsy

I may be a little concerned about leaving the tent overnight if it's supposed to thunderstorm. Thoughts on this?

I think we will discuss this tomorrow in the AM and let you know, if it is OK to get back to you on short notice. Can you flickr mail your phone number to all of us so that at least one of us has it when we need it!

Hey!!!! Kenji, Brian, Amanda, & Nate.

My aunt is the activites coordinate for Lakeshore Lutheran home in Lakeside. i guess every summer the Lakeside neighborhoods have like a 'lakeside days' celebration or something and Lakeshore hosts a bunch of art vendors on their property.

Want to set up a booth? There's no fees. it's August 12th from 4pm-?

that's really all i know right now, my aunt is mailing me out more details and the contract. She said that usually each year she has about 20 vendors set up for this.

i thought it would be a chance for us to try and sell some of our leftovers from park point. : )

whatcha think?

Nate, Brian, Kenji, & Amanda- the Lakeshore event is this Wed. from 4pm-8pm. I plan to be there to set up at 3pm.

Nate- are you still free to come then and help me set up?

Everyone- i have no problem being at the booth by myself if no one else wants to stay. Just drop off your stuff shortly before 4pm and be back to pick it up at 8pm.

if you have framed work, you'll need to provide an easel to place it on, we're not setting up the full frame that we had at park point.

I don't know what the booth looks like or what there's room for... can anything framed be set up on the tables, or do I need a standing art easel?

I will be at Lakeshore around 3pm- 40th Ave E and London Rd. I'm not sure exactly where, so call me when you're on your way. 218-349-7621

My aunt says she has 3-4 easels for us. I need one so the others are up for grabs.

i'm bringing cash to make change with, as for checks, i think i may just have everyone make them out to me and then i'll pay everyone out. that may be easiest.

Brian- do you think i could borrow your cash box? if not, i'm going hunting at work for one.
