And here’s the deal, I’m CONSTANTLY trying to make our booth more attractive and more functional, while facilitating the shipping process and of course, cutting my costs wherever possible.
The we found these little clip-on lights from Home Depot. They weren’t great, and sometimes they seem to shift around for no apparent reason (sometimes we find them pointing straight DOWN), but let’s face it, the price is right!
THEN, we spied what in my estimation is the ULTIMATE booth lighting system in our neighbor’s booth in Houston last Fall.
This system (at left) has a long plastic bar that screws into the base of the receptacle and fits quite easily INSIDE the upright support pole. The result, is this light STAYS PUT. It’s totally stable and ultra-safe. So I figured if I could get some decent pictures of this set-up, my Dad might could duplicate it when we got home, and my neighbor graciously agreed to let us shoot a few shots.
So here’s my Dad’s version, that we’ll be debuting in Kansas City. I have no idea what these items are called, but the materials were so inexpensive that we asked Dad to make us up TWO of them, one for each side of the Booth.
Here you can see the stabilizing pole that will fit INSIDE the support pole, AND Dad included extra-long cords so we won’t even need to use extension cords!
I totally love ’em and can’t wait to try them out.
As a matter of fact, our Booth will be SO brightly illuminated, that we might should both pack a pair of shades!
Great job, Dad!
