Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Ann Arbor MI
What are the best things about art fairs
Talking with the people about glass
Best show ever and why
Brighton MI. This show is very well run and the friendliest people you will ever want to meet. Most importantly a crowd that came to buy.
Worst show ever and why
There have been several but the two that really stand out are:
1. Westland Summer Festival. Westland, Michigan. Extremely high booth fee. There were two artists all the rest was buy sell.
2. Fire and Ice, Port Huron Michigan. High booth fee. Not organized at all. Not well advertised. They put two fused glass artists right across from each other.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Found it on line.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I will be 73 in June and I just went bungee jumping.

I have ATT and have never had a problem getting on line.  I have heard that square takes up to 30 days to put your money in your account. I have Chase Bank business account and for $5 a month, I have Visa, Master Card, Discover and American Express. I only have to use my phone to call into Visa, etc. and get my authorization number.
