Booth (from a Norse word = to dwell), a structure, usually temporary and often of osiers, sometimes of timber, used at markets or fairs as a shop. Mediasval booths were sometimes a sort of covered stall, with an open window, whose shutter was so divided midway that the top projected outwards and protected the goods arranged on the lower half, as on a counter.
