Your Medium
Years in the Art Fair Business
3 years
First show ever
Chocolate Lovers Fair Fairfax, VA
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
Meeting and networking with other vendors. Meeting great and interesting people who appreciate the time it takes to create handmade items.
Best show ever and why
Breaux Winery in Loudoun County: The Key West Festival. Shows that charge admission usually bring serious buyers. A little wine never hurts in loosening up the purse strings.
Worst show ever and why
BOSC fair in Fairfax, VA 2011. There were 125 vendors. The show had a fantastic location, but the traffic was not there. Unfortunately, it was also the day of the Fairfax HS fair.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
I was looking for craft vendors who participated in the Luckett's Fair and happened on you site during my search. I did not know you existed. Sorry!
