For those who do art fairs, I want to mention the newest addition to
my display set-up. I bought a set of interlocking tiles such as are
sometimes used under gym equipment. They are black, 2’ square, with
edge pieces that are like little ramps so people don’t trip. I used
them at Cain Park on top of a plastic drop cloth, and I didn’t have
to stand in mud. Then, and at my shows since, my feet didn’t hurt at
all-- and I seldom sit down at shows.
The floor does add 15 minutes to my set-up time, and I need room for
their big box in my van, but this was about $140 very well spent,
IMO. I recommend these larger tiles over 1’ square ones-- one
quarter as many pieces to lay down and pick up. And it helps to
define “my space”, especially for outdoor shows.
I searched on line for “interlocking floor tile”. There are
different thicknesses, colors, and prices. Mine came from Softtile
