Six-foot or Eight-foot table?

I'm considering investing in a folding table. I'm looking at doing more booths in the future, and we could use it for other things too. Costco has tables that fold in half for easier storage, and the price isn't bad either. They have a six-foot table and an eight-foot table, and I'm debating which I should go with.

The six-foot table is more of a standard size. Easier to find table cloths and such. The eight-foot would of course allow for more display space.

Which would you get?

Pick up both of them and see how you can carry them by yourself and imagine trying to get it in and out of the car by yourself. Will the 8-ft fit in your car? Some places you have to carry your stuff pretty far to the booth so consider that. If I had an 8-ft table, I'd just bring more stuff to put on it :) I know for the booth I'm doing this weekend, the booth is 10-ft wide so an 8-ft table might be too tight. Just some things to consider...

I say 6 foot. Having a bigger table just means bringing more stuff and making more work for yourself!

I've had the six foot for several years & love it. I take it to shows where the host doesn't have a table to use & it always works nicely. The 8 foot tables, I've found, are a little too long & bounce if you use the food chopper on them. The 6 foot doesn't seem to do that for me.

Noora: The six foots are way easier to carry. I a couple different brands and have both kinds--the kind that fold up and the kind that don't. Best one: Target, $44, gray, folds in half, very sturdy.

If you are planning to do fairs,booths etc...then go with the 8 ft. But for Cooking shows, I bring a 4ft, its lightweight & folds in half. I also have a six ft, but its heavy....HTH

I have 2 six foot one that fold and a 4 foot one. I like them b/c it gives me options for configurations.

Thanks guys! :D I think I'll get the six-foot one. It does fold in half, so that eliminates worry about transporting it. And I think it's less than $40 at Costco (though I don't remember exactly how much). Maybe I can eventually add a second one, too.

I have a smaller sized one from WalGreens that I got for $20, works great for shows.

There's one at Sam's Club that's a 4ft but has 3 height levels, kid's level, table level and counter level. I believe it's around $40 as well. I've been meaning to buy one and keep forgetting. It would have come in VERY handy at my last few shows. My back ends up killing me after bending over a regular table at table height. It would be nice to have a 6ft. table but I think I'd prefer the ability to have it at counter height. Maybe I'll later on invest in one of each so I can use different ones depending on the specific need of the show.

This is the one I have...it doesn't fold but I just lay it down in the back of my SUV withe my stuff on top. It works great!
