    As far as folding tables go, I swear by the adjustable height one I got at Sam's Club. You can take it up to counter height, and makes a world of difference on how my back feels after a show. It's a little smaller (I think 4 ft), but I find it works fine, and I use the top of my rollling case to hold extra product I may need during the show.

    HTH!

    I have two from Target and they are great. I have had mine for 3 years and haven't had a problem with them.

    You can make any table taller by adding PVC pipes to the legs. Inexpensive, not bad-looking. You can get the PVC in black or white, and for about $30, have a counter-height table if you want it.

    I have the 4' from Sam's Club which goes up to countertop height as well and I highly recommend it! It's the best size wise, weight and height!

    Gotta chime in for the 4' Sam's adjustable height one. It's only $30 and a folds in half as well and has a built in handle.

    I also got one from Sam's. But it's not 4 ft. it's at least 5 ft. long. BUT, it's a tad skinner than a traditional folding table. I LOVE it, as I can get it in more places in my hostesses homes.

    I've also found that it's a "seasonal" item more in summer at least at our Sam's club, so you might still find it there if they've got any left.

    I have one from Target that I think was $30 and it folds in half and has a handle that works great. It's a little heavy but I like that it's sturdy. I don't usually need it for shows, most of my hosts usually have a table or counter handy for demos. I bought it primarily for booths and fairs. I think it's 6' as well.

    I too have the one from Sams Club. It's great! The only thing is when I use the chopper, my stuff bounces all over the table - be careful not to lose anything off the edge.

    I used to use the 4' one from Sam's. It did well for me. However, since I'm vertically challenged it was cumbersome to carry in and out of homes.

    I recently purchased the 5' display table (it may be a little longer than that) that folds in half. I love it. It has wheels and a handle. Much easier for a shorty like me.

    okay, i checked targets and it was very heavy, i think i'll go look at sam
    s tomorrow. hard to get a somewhat heavy one that doesn't rock but isn't too heavy to carry by yourself. i'll keep looking.
    thank you for all your help.

    I have a six foot and a four foot adjustable (for smaller houses). I got the 6 foot from WalMart and 4 foot from Sam's Club. They were the same brand and both were excellent prices.

    I paid $35, but it was a clearance item at that time. I believe it's list price is $49.
