Rated 5 out of 5 by StarTraveler Craft Shows Made Easier!
My wife and I have been participating in Craft Shows for about a year now. We had been borrowing a friend's tables until she moved away a couple months ago. Faced with the prospect of researching and pricing replacement tables wasn't fun at all. I can save you some trouble, if you wish. No...I DO NOT work for Mainstays nor am I being paid to write this. I ALWAYS suspected that rave reviewers were somehow compensated...but forget about that here. I'd TAKE the money if they'd like to kick some over to me!
We decided on the 6 foot tables that fold in the middle. You can configure them more ways than 8 footers, and Craft Shows sometimes have foot restrictions where an 8 footer could be too long (seldom, but I've seen it). Plus, I have a bad back and my wife has to move them...so anyway...
After shopping ALL of the discount chains and "Big Box" stores, this particular brand and model was exactly what we needed. And, when you shop to the point where the prices begin to vary by only a couple bucks, you can rest assured that you've more than likely found the best price "neighborhood".
Once I had the best price established, I researched shipping, and Walmart has that department "down"!
I went for the cheapest shipping(you should, too!). I could have paid up to around $20 more, but my tables arrived in 4 working days (ordered on Thursday, in the evening, arrived the following Wednesday)...so I can't fairly count Thursday, because I ordered so late. So you have Friday, Monday, Tuesday, with arrival on Wednesday at around 3:00 PM. You DO realize that "WORKING DAYS" do not count Saturday or Sunday? Geeze, buddy...I hope so.
Anyway, I opened the 2 well-packed tables and they were both in perfect condition.
What can I say?
I compared customer reviews on Folding Table Brands which included weight capacity, whether they have carrying handles, powder coated hardware, top finish and overall satisfaction.
I did ALL the homework, chose, what I read to be, the best for the money, bought 2 of them, found out I made the CORRECT choice and stuck one more feather in my cap.
So your homework's done.
Enjoy your new tables!
(I swear to God I do not work for either Walmart OR Mainstays!!!)
If you truly want to save headache and confusion, just buy the 6 footers at Walmart.
Yeah, I know...I sound like an ad to me, too!
I would give anything if I could have someone like Me tell ME what to buy.
I leave no stones unturned...OK, maybe I miss a pebble here and there, but the points that MATTER are ALL handled!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mordante Great table for when you have a large group!
Purchased two of these tables for a large gathering and they performed much better than expected. They are very sturdy and good looking tables that are easy to set up. The bonus is they fold in half and have a carrying handle so they are easy to store and move around. A very good investment that I plan on getting years and years of use out of.
Rated 5 out of 5 by arj101 Great Table
I ordered this table to use at my events. It was easy to get in and out of the car. It was durable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lissie420 Great party table!
I recently bought this for more seating at a party I was hosting and it was PERFECT. The table is easy to unfold and fold up and it's slim enough to be stored in small spaces. It's great quality and sturdy too. Love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by StevenTami Great value, not sure about long-term durability
After the first use of this table for a Thanksgiving dinner we are pleased so far. Set up and take down are a breeze. It is large enough for eight people to dine comfortably. It is study, which I was concerned about for the price. It folds easily for storage.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kaali One black screw fell out but from where?
I'm so glad that I picked black! It reminds me less of picnic tables.
I use for a workspace with a laptop, office and drawing supplies. The height is alright for my height and the black cushioned chair I also ordered at Walmart for free shipping.
I didn't have to assemble anything.
After I propped the table, one black screw fell out but I don't know from which part of the table it did!
Since I'm not carrying the table to anywhere else, the fallen screw won't be a problem for now, but I hope not in the future!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vegas121 Nice sturdy table
I bought this table to have extra seating space for Thanksgiving. The table is easy to set up and folds easily, with a lock to hold the folded table in place and a carrying strap. The table also have locks to hold the legs in place which is great for weight and durability. The quality of the table is very good for the price.
Rated 5 out of 5 6' folding table
Very nice, attractive black 6' durable table. Met my expectations. Using it as laundry table in the basement...and will work fine as buffet table when entertaining.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dabendaun Excellent Table
Great table for a multitude of uses !!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Expressiveshopper Arrived broken so I brought it back to the store.
I picked up the table from the store, and was hoping to set it up that day. When it was taken out of the box to be put up, the leg had been made so that the table could not stand up. I returned it the next day for a refund.
Rated 1 out of 5 by dfdmh Not Impressed
The table was very flimsy. Definitely not made the way they have been in the previous years. We ended up returning the table and will look for a better, heavier made one elsewhere.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zencowboy007 Simply a quality black sturdy fold in-half table
I simply recommend and this is my 2nd one and use often. Sturdy and like the legs curving out.
Rated 5 out of 5 by burlingtonresident Excellent choice for any gathering and stores easy
Excellent choice for any gathering and stores easy, nice that it has a handle. Not cheap looking.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jillezee 6 foot tables
These tables are an early Christmas present to my daughters. We need sturdy tables for the holidays since our family and extended families reach over 30 of us. We were to receive them this week the week after Thanksgiving. However, delivery came earlier.... a few days before.
They open easily, extremely sturdy, long enough to serve more than 6 grown-ups comfortably, and at least 8 children.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jbrunningwater Really versatile, easy to use table.
I bought this table last year before the holidays when I was expecting a big crowd. I've used it all year. I set it up for extra seating, used it as extra work space to hold serving dishes and cookers, used it for a garage sale, kept it in the garage to put groceries on when unloading the car, etc. This year I ordered another one for my big holiday meal. I had them both set up in my laundry room off the kitchen. It helped me keep my counters clear for food prep and kept all my supplies handy. I love how light this table is and how easy to carry because of the handle.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Brush3x Does not lay flat
I read other reviews where the Mainstays table did not lay flat in the middle when unfolded. You will not be able to put a centerpiece in the middle without it rocking. I took a chance on the table since there were a couple of people who said they had no problems. Unfortunately, my table did not lay flat in the middle. The corner was also dented in where it could not be popped out. The handle is made of fabric so i question the longterm durability. I returned it to Walmart with my printed email receipt & they seamlessly refunded my $. Btw, I found a similar table at OldTimePottery & it does lay flat in the middle as it should and the handle is made of thick plastic.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PATRIOTICMOM GREAT TABLE
SO VERSATILE, BOUGHT ANOTHER ONE!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ManhattanDweller Terrific Value For Folding Tables!
We needed ten 6-foot tables quickly ... letting my fingers do the shopping, I found these; click/ delivered less than a week later (does it get any better than that?). We've already had one event when all tables were put to rigorous use; so far, so good. They set up easily, fold in half and store easily, and look good (for plastic), to boot. No telling how long they'll last, but, for the time being, I'm delighted with the purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Islandhalfbreed Great extended eating space
Used to supplement dinner for the 26 guests hosted for Thanksgiving. The set up was easy (folding table with handle) and the table was sturdy as advertised. Very satisfied!
Rated 5 out of 5 by tinylargebanana Very nice quality table
Love the looks and quality of this table.
Rated 4 out of 5 by TampaNurseRae Great for the price
I bought this table to line up next to our dining table and make a larger table. The only problem I had was this table is a little higher in the middle than on the ends by about 3/4 inch. Not too big of a deal, we were able to make it work anyway.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 305Mia GREAT PRODUCT!
GREAT TABLE AND LOVE THE COLOR. ITS VERY STURDY
Rated 1 out of 5 by Brookswiths Assembled Improperly
Let me start by saying that I never shop at Walmart.
I needed a cheap/nice table to put food on for Thanksgiving and looked online for deals and it came down to either Amazon or Walmart. Decided to go with the cheaper one (Walmart).
I opened the box the morning of Thanksgiving to find out that the table was assembled wrong and there was no way to have it stand on its own. Needless to say that I was angry and will never shop at Walmart again. Voila.
Rated 5 out of 5 by conniebbluvswalmart great product and great price and setup and clean
Was so easy this Thanksgiving not having to move in dining room table held all the food without any problem great material to wipe clean and so easy to setup and down. Will have to get more for summer yard sales price so reasonable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lamowry Perfect extra table for holidays
Bought this for Thanksgiving and it worked perfectly. Very sturdy and easy to put up and down. Very happy with it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by PGATour Good overall
Nice sturdy table, seems to be well built. Carries with a fold away cloth/vinyl strap once folded and locked. A little heavy to carry very far with just one hand! I've only had it a week or so, seems ok.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bountyhunter1 Just what I needed
Very nice for the price. I have 6-9 large parties a year because I am from a big family. I needed something that would hold up to the constant use. So far so good!
Rated 2 out of 5 by ghh1 the table came with a part installed upside down.
could not open one side. great.
Rated 4 out of 5 by msnmaine Good table but too tall
The table is fine except it is too tall. The picture shows kids eating at the table which without a stool is impossible.
