Something different at this years market than years before, is that the market is taking place in the evening! I’m personally excited because this most likely means we won’t have to battle 100 degree temps!
This also brings forth a new challenge in that it will be dark for most of the market and because of the large amount of you wonderful vendors, plugging into the city outlets is not a option.
But take heart! This means we get to use some creative juices and we’ve done a bit of research for you!
We went out last Friday night and checked out what DOMO’s First Friday vendors do for lighting at their monthly markets! After walking the market and street and talking with a few of the vendors, we think we have some great ideas for you!
One of the vendors had a wonderfully bright booth using only 3 of these great battery powered LED lights from Home Depot with a few twinkle lights sprinkled throughout for ambiance.
These lights are at Home Deopt in the back corner of their lighting department! They are $20 a piece, but they are magnetic and rechargeable and have 3 different levels of brightness!
2-3 of these bright beauties plus some battery powered twinkle lights would light up your booth perfectly!
Here are a couple other battery options we found while at Home Depot!
These battery light pucks would work if you put them on the ceiling of your easy up in the corners and middle bars facing down!
They had a few different LED light bars to choose from though after testing a couple of them, the ones listed above were the brightest, though a couple dollars more.
Another fun option we found at Home Depot were these battery back up light bulbs for $15! They would allow you to use any table lamp for a cozy feel in your booth! The box says they run for 4 hours on one set of batteries and are reusable! (I would test them with the lamp of your choice before hand) Located in the light bulb section of the store!
Here are some great options we found on Amazon! Click the photos to purchase!
I hope these ideas help you figure out an easy and inexpensive way to light up your product and booth the night of the market! We highly suggest the light bar first listed with twinkle lights for ambience but we know you vendors are creative and will come up with some great ideas!
