Where to winter?

So hubby suggests we go to Florida, Arizona, somewhere warm for maybe a month or 2, January and February most likely and do some shows. I am a painter. We live in Wisconsin. Anyone have any tips on doing this? Where to go, shows that are good? We're thinking of borrowing our daughter's camper and doing the RV park thing or maybe renting one in whatever state we land. Sound like a lot of moving parts to this plan but warm weather sure sounds good in Jan/Feb. Any advice would really be…See More

Posted on May 15, 2017 at 11:02am 7 Comments

Well not really a change in latitude but definitely a change in attitude at the Marshfield Art Fair held at the fairgrounds in Marshfield WI.  

It's always held on Mother's Day and this was the second time I had done the show. The weather was beautiful but it was not a buying crowd for many of us. In years past, it was held at the high school and fine arts/crafts were sold. This year the venue was changed to the fairgrounds and more crafters were in attendance and at least one…
