Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse. -Winston Churchill
I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember. I’ve always enjoyed going to the Virginia (VA) Boardwalk Art Festival and coming home excited and giddy with a thousand new ideas. Everyone always asked me after seeing my work why I hadn’t done an art show and so I finally did.
However “doing an art show” isn’t as nearly as easy as it sounds. First you have to be accepted into the art show, then there’s the entrance fee, tent rental, having enough work to show. The details are exhausting. Another problem I had was the logistics of getting tables, art, display cases, a chair, cash box…..and much, much more to the site.
At this point I didn’t have a lot of room or a lot of money left. So I was really pleased when I found the pancake flat wagon. It was fairly inexpensive for something so sturdy and rugged. It was also the only wagon I could find that folded flat. The wheels literally fold under and hide up inside the wagon making it only 7 inches.
The wagon is constructed of metal so it’s sturdy and I was able to secure some of my bigger art pieces with bungee cords. With the seagulls cartwheeling overhead I towed my first load of art out onto the boardwalk and it was smooth sailing the rest of the weekend. I finished off the show with several large pieces sold and tired but happy. Once again my little lovely wagon helped me get everything back to the car and loaded.
A bunch of other artists asked me that weekend where I got the pancake flat cart by pancake wheel, this newest piece of essential artist equipment. I told them that they can order online from www.foldflatworld.com or find it on Amazon Marketplace as well as at a couple of Virginia Beach, Virginia (VA) Taylor Do-it-Yourself centers
