What are the best things about art fairs
Meeting shoppers & artists. Building relationships & a customer base. Getting away for a bit, on my own, & making some money along the way!
Best show ever and why
Paducah Lowertown Arts and Music. IT is well organized, well attended, the n
Worst show ever and why
Bartlett. It was stunningly terrible on many fronts, but primarily there were no shoppers. It must have been so poorly advertised because any of the people who did stumble upon it wondered what was going on. Most of these people lived in the neighbourhood.
