Default Rent or Inexpensive 3 sink for Fest Vending in ILL

Anyone around ILL know a place I can rent one or buy one for relatively cheap. I plan on doing some local fests next year and want to avoid spending major cash on a setup. Also to those that do fests that last several days do you bring your own fridge to store the left overs from the day?

Do you have to be licensed in Illinois to vend the festivals, or does each festival provide a way to one time license just for that event through the local HD? I think the really comment may be more targeted at saying, if you were licensed to vend then you would already have facilities that would include such equipment and should be able to roll up and go.

I know some St. Louis events you can get a one day license, but I don't know if they keep track and would take an issue if you were repeatedly one time licensing events.

Just a thought on a less expensive option. Get 3 mud-room type sinks. Should be able to plug them and fill them up. Can hook them together fairly cheap with some pvc or just drain them into large buckets as needed. Easy to do a hose hookup to them as well if you want actual running water.

Its a temp permit for the fest only and everything has be done on site regardless if I have a kitchen. They do inspection on the site as well. This is my only hang up right now. Some of these fest wont allow you to roll up in a trailer either due to size constrants of the area they provide you with.



Never heard of a mud room type sink could you explain or throw a link? Nevermind we just call them laundry sinks out here.

Correct, laundry sinks. The only thing with the bus bins is whether or not they have a rule that whatever you are using must be able to be fully submerged. So large cutting boards won't fit in them. Both are good options for on site things like this. Sorry, yes laundry room, type same thing.

http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?...llow&cId=PDIO1

$53 for a single sink kit. Dunno what your price point is. Have to put these somewhere obviously as well. Bus bins are easier to store for sure.

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Swanstone-...-Sink/16821715

$45 from Wally World, but also includes the faucet, which would be easy to hook to a hose with splitter if you were after that ability.

Thanks N and yes everything has to be submergable out here. So maybe buying 3 of these would work out for me. Will have to do some research on how to get a pump and hot water next. Im thinkin putting these on some small pallets as well. So I can have the tanks underneath and then cover them with some sheet metal with a front panel to access it.

This is all entirely new to me so will post any progress I do or the build.

I've heard a number of good things about this, but I don't have one myself. It's what I was thinking of getting when looking at putting together a trailer for competitions. If you have access to water hookup (ie hose) I think it's perfect for on demand hot water. Split the hose and you have hot and cold.

http://www.overstock.com/Sports-Toys...2/product.html

If you don't have a water hookup you'll be having to find a way to store the water as well as pump it. In that case I would just be thinking, fill bins with water at the start of the day and that's that. If you need hot water, as said before, turkey fryer and a pot.

Thanks N much appreciated info. Going to talk to my brother in law about this over the weekend. Im sure we can figure something out inexpensive.

Might just pick up 3 laundry sinks and start there. We won't have a continuous water supply so looks like we need to use some jugs. Store them underneath. I want this to look good as well but on a budget.

Now how do u suppose you'll collect all that water?

U need to think disposable. No washing required.

If anyone has a picture or can take one for me with the Bus Bin set up would be appreciated. Or just give an explanation on how it works and what you drain into etc. Got a turkey fryer so thats one cost down for me. I got a 5 Gall water cooler as well for hand washing station. Thanks for the info on this.

Three bus bins sitting on a folding table. When you want to drain them pick them up and pour them out somewhere. Then refill them back on the table.

I can't see an image of it on anything I have but I'll keep looking. They just sit lip to lip against each other.
