Preparing for a show

It takes a lot of work to prepare for show (especially when trying to combine with a full-time job and a social life). You need to decide on how to set out your stand or stall of a particular size, organise transport, decide on what items of stock to take, price, pack and do an inventory (both before and after a show).

This is what the hallway of my home currently looks like as we gear up for the P-lush show in Coventry, UK on 27th and 28th March, 2015.
