Collapsible LEMONADE Stand

My mom asked me to build 6 COLLAPSIBLE LEMONADE STANDS to give to her kids for Christmas this year.  I was excited for the challenge and am very proud of myself for figuring out how to make them...(though it took several trial and error attempts!) There were some stands online that I found that I liked, but they didn't collapse and others were cute(photographer prop/photobooths), but not functional for an actual lemonade stand.  I couldn't find any with plans on how to build them, so I had to start from scratch. I have a written tutorial, including dimensions, available for $25. Email me at craftifyit@gmail.com and get started on your own stand today!


I wanted the signs to be hand painted and not actual vinyl, so I cut a "stencil" from some orange vinyl...

and then painted with yellow paint, removed the vinyl and tada!

Oh...and the "Lemonade" sign is REVERSIBLE with a chalkboard on the backside! Now my kids can have a BAKE SALE or a TOY SALE or an indoor PUPPET SHOW...the possibilities are endless!
 It was used as an  icecream bar at a recent reception...

the sign just hangs on hooks, the poles slide out and the base collapses...
so it can be stored easily in a garage or even tucked away under a bed!

My cute boys, selling lemonade with their new stand...

*** I will email you basic lemonade stand plans, including dimensions and a tutorial  for $25. 
 Email me today at craftifyit@gmail.com to purchase the plans!
