Mock Promotions Booth
« on: March 14, 2014, 03:47:37 PM »
Good day,

I want to create a promotions area that gets the message of Appleseed across quickly to people that walk by at promo events.  With that in mind I purchased a couple of Libertyseed banners this week to add to my overall Appleseed gear.  I then took the gear that I currently have and put together a mock "promotions booth" in my pole barn. 

Please take a look at this and suggest other areas to make a booth "pop" to the eye of someone walking buy.   

A couple of suggestions I already have been given:  add a flag or two from the era (I have the Appleseed flag pack) and to change the front tablecloth to be an Appleseed banner (which I don't have yet).

Looks good.  I highly recommend knocking together a stand to get the rifles up and visible...frees up table space and makes them easier to see.  Also highly recommend having a monitor and speaker running a picture loop/soft music.

We've got this set up too!;topic=29064.0;attach=85580

I'll see what I can dig out and bring down next weekend.

I'm not gonna be able to operate any shows this year, and well, the bulk of our volunteers are in the southern half of the state.  It makes more sense for the stuff to be down that way.

Off the top of my head, I've got:

Blue table cloth; red runner; black(flame resistant-req'd by some venues); banner stand; and some table fodder.

As "table fodder" we used Whoppers or Sour Heads  when we told the Young Patriot Stories. Cabela's didn't like the idea of Lead Musket Balls in kiddie hands.
