Some of the best shows in my area are outdoors, so I have made the investment in a tent. Not just any pop-up for me. No, I splurged on a LightDome tent that is actually waterproof instead of merely water resistant. My one experience with a typical pop-up tent supplied by a show organizer was disastrous - it started leaking profusely as soon as it started raining. My husband and I put the tent together for the first time yesterday and I'm happy to say there was a minimum of yelling and swearing. The tent is quite tall so hubby's 6'6" height was a major advantage.
