My Home And Garden Show Booth

My Home And Garden Show Booth


I always had dreaded doing the Big Home and Garden Show, but this year was different.  It went from Wednesday to Sunday.  I spent 12 hours per day (except Sunday-9) talking up my art and faux-finish skills. 

What was different?

Got a ton of help setting up from my brother Joel Kleven (Wesley Homes) and friend Troy Anderson (Troy Anderson Painting).   This is no small task.  First, in your truck all loaded up with a heavy booth, artwork,  and misc. booth junk, you wait in line outside the Mpls. Convention Center with hundreds of others waiting to unload.  

   

A good surprise:  I got some bonus real estate on the side of my booth, so I could show one large piece:

I had this showing at The State Fair Eco-Experience too.

Here are the samples I hung up for the show on the "kid's rooms" side of my booth:


Here are the samples hung up for the wall treatments and "grown-up art" side of my booth:



Talked to some really nice people and I think I will get a good amount of work from the show.  So even though it is tiring to stand for so long and talk about what I do, (when I usually seem to hide from potential business) this show went more quickly than I thought it would.  I actually enjoyed it.  Hope to see you there next year!

Hi Lisa! I am so happy that we met each other at the Home and Garden show. I was thrilled to see a fellow muralist doing so well and reminding homeowners that custom touches add so much to a home. Your work is truly beautiful and very well designed - talk to you soon!
