Just a review of my feelings and comments.

This had been a year with so many up and down. The consisting topic for sales this year is there is no reason why things goes well or bad. The consisting act it was playing catch up with the bills. I personally believe, that this is the first year where I feel I pick up good shows with potential and no regret of the outcome from any of my choices. This is the first year that make certain that I was over prepare for each show. There was no…

Festival adds Friday to extend sales!

Posted by Erica Harrison on November 20, 2017 at 1:04pm 3 Comments

The 2018 Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival will become a three-day event, opening on Friday, from 10am-5pm, and thereby provide access to an entirely NEW buying audience: the approximately 10,000-person workforce in the Town Center!

Is your pricing keepin up with inflation?

Posted by Reid Watts on November 19, 2017 at 7:11pm 10 Comments

In the midst of all of these “for sale” blog postings, I thought I should get a discussion going on a topic of interest to us all.  So here goes:

Despite historically low inflation, the Consumer Price Index (CPI-U) has increased by 18% in the last ten years (from 207.3 to 244.3).  Have you increased your prices by 18% as well?  If not, why not?
