Luke's Show Essentials

“I’ve been doing shows for 25 years in every part of the country and in all kinds of conditions. Here’s a list of supplies I always bring with me, besides of course my inventory, charge card machine, plenty of change, extra pens, and my display. I hope with this basic kit you’ll be able to meet whatever challenges come your way.”

~Luke

Duct Tape

Very Important - attaches anything to anything.

Bungee Cords

Hold a display to a table, or possibly hold up the table.

Spring Clamps

Good all around fastener.

Step Stool or Ladder

If you were tall, you would be in the NBA not doing craft shows.

Hammer

A must have for pounding in stakes and fending off unwanted visitors.

Nylon Rope

For attaching tie down screws or dragging your car out of the mud.

409 or Similar Cleaner

Because even despite your best efforts stuff will get dirty.

Raincoat

I know it's not gong to rain, just bring it.

Pliers

Tightens any bolt and converts Mesh Panels etc.

First-aid Kit

Bandages, Triple-Antibiotic, Pain Releif, etc
