Doing a night market
« on: November 02, 2021, 11:30:17 am »
Doing an outdoor night market for the first time and am going to need some lighting to at least take payments There will be a little bit of light coming off the street. Can anyone suggest an economical solution to get me through the process. Hopefully will be the only one but right now this is just about the only venue as just about every indoor craft show has fallen victim to Covid here in Canada. Any tips much appreciated.

We've used battery powered lights and "fairy" light strands.

Try lighting your stall with beeswax candles.....and let the advertising sell some for you.

You could use solar powered lights. Most of them are designed to stay lit all night. One on each corner would light it up pretty good.

That is a good idea  christina. I bought some from Home Depot for $7.99 each that holds up the entire night.

We run a quite generator and really light up all the markets. This draws people in like flies or bees to light at night.  We rule the markets with our set up but mostly the lights,, sometimes if could heat. Its the best.. Wish you well in 2022, try to stay safe.
