Need help on a new booth!

Help! I am in my 17th year and it could be my last. I had an easy up to begin with then went to a Flourish Trimline. I am completely happy with it and would recommend it BUT. I am nearing 70 and because of all my arthritis , bone spur, pulled muscle health problems, I just can't see another year of this. Is there a good replacement like a folding ez up that has stabilizers that I could use? 4 days at Ann Arbor with the grueling set up and take down has done me in. I would still like to extend… Continue

Ann Arbor--Put a fork in it, it is done!

Posted by Nels Johnson on July 26, 2016 at 10:18am 9 Comments

This post is mainly for those of you who have never done the summer art fairs here.

I have done the Guild show here since 1985.

This year was the worst show ever in all the years I have done it.

It was the worst for about 90 per cent of all exhibitors. There were a few lucky ones--very few.

The failure can be summed up succinctly.

Too many booths for too little buyers.

This year the heat was a big factor.

Over 95 degrees almost every day. It killed… Continue

Hey, Y'all.

Since Art Fair Insiders allows blog posts, I thought I'd clog up the  bandwidth with a few posts.

About me. Ehhhh........ not much actually.

Avid obsessed photographer. I have a day job. I have all the amenities (mortgage, bills, family, dog, ad nausem).

And I've just started into the Art Fair market this year. Have only made a few local artsy-craftsy shows and flea markets (don't ask!) and…
