Art Fair Insiders

Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

I have applied to a couple of shows put on by the group Vintage Market Days .  I found out a few weeks ago that I am waitlisted for the spring 2017 show in Amite, LA (3/10-3/12, 2017).

However I just got notification yesterday afternoon of acceptance at the one in Brandon, Miss., just outside Jackson.  This is one is a couple of weeks after the one in Amite (3/31-4/2, 2017).

I am wondering if any of have done any of their shows?  What should I expect?  Any advice?

I did and was told that nothing is available.  Our set up time is Thursday at 2pm so we hope that maybe the weather looks better by then.  We have wood products that can't be outside for 3 days, even under our canopy.  I'll be sure to find you so that we can meet in person.  Good luck. 

Sounds great! My booth is SamAndTilly (broken China jewelry) Good luck. 

Lisa and Laura,

When this event is over, I hope you'll do your own review so we can all read about it.  I would suggest that if you do your own review that you start a new discussion so it's more easily visible in searches.  Anxiously awaiting to hear how it turns out!

Cindy and Laura,

i submitted a review. 

Laura, I’m interested in your thoughts. I didn’t get a chance to look you up. Hope you did better than me. Considering the door was about a third of the last show I guess I did ok, but I def won’t be back. 

We ended up not participating due to the weather.  We were supposed to set up Thursday afternoon and is was pouring at the time.  The show owner would not allow us to move our time and was not flexible at all.  She would not even allow us our 2 tickets that were paid for with the entry fee, so we didn't even attend.  I won't try for this one again, since we did not have a good experience with the owner.  I am sorry that it wasn't great for you.  I'd love to chat more about local shows in the future.
