Art Craft Show Checklist for A Successful Show Set Up

OK, I gathered this Art/Craft Show Checklist. Thanks to everyone who contributed for this great list! I have it organized to sections for easy read. This list is a compilation of tips from fellow jewelry artisans from various groups in FB that I cannot name one by one. You know who you are :) ~Kharisma.
