Carpeted Craft Display Booth

$250 OBO

This display unit is custom handmade with 9 interlocking carpeted (with 2 complementary shades of neutral gray) plywood panels (78”H x various lengths). While the interlocking wall panels can be separated and stacked flat for transport, the display unit is best used as a permanent or semi-permanent indoor display for craft items. In addition to the 10 x 10 wall structure, the display includes 2 carpeted and skirted tables (54”L x 36”H x 30”W), each with 2 additional stacked and staggered carpeted shelves providing 4 display levels for each table unit. Under-shelf lighting is provided for 3 of the 4 shelves. The table skirting provides covered under-table storage space. The display also includes 4 stand-alone carpeted pedestal display stands for the front booth area, one carpeted and skirted work station (with 2 under shelves for storage), and one carpeted and skirted packing station with one under shelf for storage. A rear ‘hidden’ pass-through with additional storage space is accessed to the right of the packing station. The blue triangular flag on the left rear wall panel is not a permanent part of the display unit and the floor carpet is not included. This display has won prizes for “Best in Show” and customers have commented that it has the look and feel of a “mini-boutique”.
Condition: excellent

FOR SALE

27” Louet David Loom

8 harnesses with additional heddles, built-in raddle, sliding beater, sectional warp beam (easily used as a plain beam), 10 dent reed.
Two very different tension devices for warping from Louet. One is similar to a tension box that hooks on the back beam, the other is a much smaller setup… Louet Warp Tension Regulator and Sectional Warping Tool

It has two minor scratches on the castle. About two years old.

I found it to be really easy to use… warping, threading, weaving. The shed opening is wonderful and I had no trouble getting used to the harnesses going down rather than up.

Frequently asked questions:

Can I place an ad to sell used studio / workshop equipment or craft supplies?
YES!

I’m seeking or hiring for a craft related job. Can I place an ad here?
YES!

Are home + studio rental and sales listings okay?
YES! But, they need to have a link to Maine craft such as: the owner is a MCA member, the property is a studio rental/sale, the property is uniquely suited to artists and in Maine. We don’t want to list general real estate sales and rentals.

NO, but you can sign up for [SOURCE + BUY] This portion of the project will add you to a directory of makers, and highlight your work on our social media!

I’m looking to hire someone to create an e-commerce website for my business. Can I place an ad here?
YES!

I offer a professional service that applies to craft artists (web design, bookkeeping, marketing)
YES!

Can non-MCA members list ads in SOURCE+SELL?
YES! As long as the listing is Maine craft related and fits into types of listing we are sharing. As with all listings, if we determine it doesn’t fit in we will let you know. & we always welcome new members – please consider joining! Click here for more info.
