I would like to build my own outdoor booth in which I will be selling various gourmet coffee's. I've been looking at Victorian playhouses to get some ideas. I love the way they look but don't necessarily need an entire house. I need to make a booth that has three sides, shelving underneath, and something overhead to protect me from the sun. Any suggestions??????

fabric is a good tool! and faux scenery! something like a ridged table on the bottom and some wire structure festooning with fabric... the fabric can be layered and segments or so long it starts at the point above you coming to a pinnicle maybe with some sort of name/medallian or plastic flowers/ basically a focal point. next the fabric would go out to the right and left with swags that define your booth space... running down on the sides like curtains. you could take it up quick or close the curtains. all you would need is a little structure behind to hold up the curtins at 2 points on either side. it would really get peoples eye and be a quick 5 minute setup and tear down. or you could use the fabric the same way and take sheets of plywood and slighty cut them out and hinge them so it would be like a book on either side. then cover them with fabric. to put up or tear down... first place the 2 pieces of plywood facing the crowd and touching each other and open the bookends. then drape with the fabric and signs. elegant and eye catching .. no? a lot better then a fold up table and poster board...LOL

Porticus ----- sounds interesting but I'm having a hard time getting a mental picture of this idea. Do you have a drawing or photo of this set up that you possibly saw somewhere else that you could scan and email to me?
