Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Has anyone had a booth or shopped the Denham Springs (Louisiana) Antique Village Fall Festival?
I have an app in hand for the fall event, Oct. 7, 2017. I cannot go since I am already committed to Shadows on the Teche (New Iberia, LA). However I am wondering if I should apply for the next one? I'd like to know if they have a spring event and when it usually falls.
Carol and I have been to Denham Springs many times over the years to browse the Antique stores. It is only about 30 minutes from where we live.. We have never participated in the festival but did visit it one time.
It is a low priced craft festival with vendors giving free stuff with the intention to sell vacum cleaners etc. I doubt there is much for sale above $25... with a few exceptions.
A lot of people attended but I really could not get any indication of how the craft people did sales wise. Denham flooded last August and many of the shops came back in the Antique strip.
I would say to give it a try...
I am ambivalent toward it since it is a one day show. We have moved to multiple day shows pretty much this year. It is one set up with several selling days.
Also we are doing primarily indoor shows, or shows that are under cover of some sort.
I will ask around some more but thanks for your input.
