During the Holiday season you will see many temporary markets and stands set up near the center or high traffic areas of your town or city. Vendors and crafts people will try to sell their wares to the locals while displaying them in portable glass cases. Since these same vendors are participating in numerous public fairs throughout the year the portable glass cases should be light weight and made sturdy. Portable glass cases usually do not exceed forty eight inches in width and are made using clear tempered glass. Tempered glass is more resistant to shock and breakage. Your typical portage glass showcase will be laid on some high and strong folding table. Sliding lockable glass doors or a glass lift top door are basically the two ways one can access the inside of a portable glass showcase. The base plate on which the glass panels sit usually does not exceed two inches. Once again limited weight is the basic consideration when building glass cases that are easy to lift, carry and transport.
