"No shows, but got in a new printer and just got it running. A couple of test prints left my jaw hanging and it looks like it's time to print a bunch. It's the Epson P800 that I got as a replacement for my Epson 4900. That one may be a hell…"

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.

Thank you for suggesting using a blog to ask the question about "Application photos including the full body of work."  I've just done that.  I know a lot about some shows but am less competent in navigating this website.  Please tell me what 'giving a gift' is about.  Also, do I need to be a freind to anyone whose blog topic interests me to read?  I'm a little unclear how this all transpires.  Thanks for your help.
