First show ever
Royal Oak, MI, and the following weekend the State Street Show in Ann Arbor. Baptism by fire!
What is your website?
http://artfaircalendar.com
What are the best things about art fairs
When you go home with fat pockets.
Best show ever and why
Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair 2001 - best sales ever at an art show, lots of money flowing in the streets of Ann Arbor. We went home and paid all our bills!
Worst show ever and why
As beginners, grasping at anything, got talked into an "art show" at Boysville, a fundraiser at a rural boy's reformatory. The first day we pocketed $5 in sales. Instead of spending the night we cancelled our hotel reservation and went home.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
I started ArtFairInsiders.com to build an online community around the nation's art fair business so artists and others could connect with one another for mutual support and fellowship.

Connie,

thanks for the wonderful invite--I have joined other lists + blogs but have never received a welcome like this!  WOW!  How nice!  I will have to spend some time trying to figure out what + where to comment.  I found Artfair Insiders by googling Trimline Tents last week, after being frustrated on Craigs List.  Not only did I find a tent, I found everything else you offer!  Thanks again,

Diana
