i feel your pain, when i first started doing shows i used my father in laws, it was old but soooooooo durable, it lasted about 8 years until it got a hole in the roof, so we went to sams and bought a new one, well they are by no means made as easy and durable as they used to be, i had the new one for one season and the roof leaked, i was so mad, i ended up special ordering a bubble gum pink top for it and have no probs with the roof since then but i can't get the news up and down by myself at all, the old one went up in a snap alone but not now, it takes longer to put up the dang tent then it does to roll my displays off the trailer and set up!

If you've ever put a tent that wasn't an EZ-up it really is A LOT easier. I used to have one that had poles that you had to put together to make a frame then slide the canvas over. Not easy at all.

I love my EZ-up. I had a neighbor help put mine up when my hubby wasn't available to help.

Never seen a pink one though! I bet you will definitely draw people!

Use masking tape/duck tape to mark the boudaries to give you an idea.

Making sure the "scissor" is extended as far as possible in all directions (this is where you need the 2 people) Opposite corners walk back. Then opposite sides you'll have to push out on the scissors until you can get the pins to lock. Does that make any sense?

Then I just go around and raise each leg 1 notch at a time (was doing this by myself again)

Is this indoor or outdoor? Outdoor having GOOD weights is very important. I'm going to make better ones this year with quickcrete, coffee cans, and rebar. I've seen them made with PVC pipe that's filled with quickcrete.

If you need it I can go out and grab the instructions, maybe i can scan them in.

HTH!

I love my ezup I can totally do it myself but it did take some serious practice in the beginning. Don't give up-it is doable alone!! If you have major issues at a show there is always a friendly crafter to help you out-you just have to ask.

A fair share of my shows require white tents. A tent that is pink would be super cute but you may want to check with the promoter to ask if your pink tent is allowed. It would stink to pay for a show and get there just to have them not let you set up.
