Tables into market stalls

Standard

Sort of

Decided, despite this being a ready-covered market, to give a couple of the tables a canopy.  Extended the legs of the ‘A’ frame one upwards and added cross bars here and there in order to support the covering fabric, but when it came to working on the trestle style table I more or less scrapped it and went ‘A’ frame shaped with that one too.  Have made them with no selling space at the back so the stall-holder has to work from the front of their stand.

I’ve gone with a half in half out look for the stalls and tables so that they flow a little into the surrounding street scene.

The ‘A’ frame stall has a slightly mussed up array of locally dyed and woven fabrics, that is local to this imaginary township, and is sitting under cover with its back against the block of outside steps and the ladder to the loft/office

Someone has been rummaging in the piles of folded lengths of fabric including messing around with the back row that is hanging over a wooden bar.

The second covered stall is next to this first one but faces the other way (at the moment), with the daylight coming through its covering and its front legs sticking out into the street.

Trying out the second stall facing the other way so that there’s visual interest around that face of the building, but if both turn inwards then the stall-holders could sit together and have a gossip which would help the scene.  With the two large stalls set together at one side and the two small ones placed across the way, I can insert a hand in from either of the sides and operate the torches without knocking too much over, though it leaves a space centrally which it is going to be very tempting to fill with activity.
