    Re: Overhead Lights for a Reptile Show Table

    You’ve probably noticed this at shows, but any type of display that gets some kind of vertical height is better than stuff flat on a table. If you’ll have two or more rows of display cases front-back on the table, you can do a riser out of bench, or board with supports, or whatever, and disguise it with a tablecloth/length of fabric. And if you do it right, you can use the space under/behind the riser for your stuff. Going vertical can also help you get more out on display without needing more tables.

    I was thinking the same thing with the stair step display and go a bit vertical, something like this:



    Also, I've never seen this done at a show, but I was thinking of something like a clear glass cabinet instead of a table. That way you could put more displays down low, maybe have some of your duplicate snakes down there and move them up as they sell off the top. Not sure if the shows would allow it though. Something like this:

    Yep, exactly. It makes it so much easier to appreciate the stuff in back if its elevated a little.

    They’ll probably allow it (as long as they don’t tear up the floors somehow), the question is moving them. You could put heavy-duty casters on them, like we did for our Thing1 and Thing2:
    After being unpacked, they get covered and used as tables. Long before my husband became a truck driver we outfitted our cargo trailer with e-track, which is used in trucks, and have 2” wide tie-down straps with e-track fittings. With those and heavy moving blankets the Things Do. Not. Shift. in transit.
