Jeanne - For lighting outside the cases, go to your local home
improvement store - Home Depot is where I found them. Buy the track
lights with 3 halogen bulbs and buy the plug in adapter for the
track. About a year ago, the track and 3 lights were $50 or 60 and
the adapter was $10. I use electrical ties to attach the strip to the
tent frame. My sister uses propanels in her booth and ties the lights
to the stabilizer bars. Incidently, Lowes did not carry these
For lights inside your cases, look in Lapidary Journal or one of the
craft magazines for ads. When I was using aluminum collapsable cases,
I found little light strips that pressure fit inside the cases with
small halogen lights.
And welcome to the US! Good luck with shows.
