Judi Markert replied to Barry Bernstein's discussion Something I've been Thinking About
"Barry, I think there are as many answers to that question as there are artists providing those answers. I have a friend who is a fellow jewelry artist and who is all about the money. He fiercely resents paying jury fees in the first place. When I am…"

Judi Markert replied to Cindy Welch's discussion Much Bigger Show, Much More $$
"Cindy, this looks like a very good show; I noticed no red flags. When I Googled Red River Revel I saw that the show has a Facebook page. You might want to go there to see if attendees had comments...? You might also check photos of the show for…"

Judi Markert replied to Wendy edwards's discussion Rejection??? No, not really!
"Thank you, Wendy! I will keep this in mind. I'd like to add that when I am notified that I was not selected for a show I always contact the organizer(s) immediately, thanking them for their consideration, asking what factor or factors led to my…"

Judi Markert replied to Michelle Maddux's discussion Question - Application Process for paper apps
"From my experience it appears that the application process is dependent on the size and nature of the show's sponsor. Last week I applied to a small-but-prestigious local show that is sponsored and organized by the village in which it takes…"

Judi Markert replied to Jim Dalton's discussion What's the worst question you have been asked at an art fair?
"OMG, that actually happened to me! I had a tent at a wine festival, and two ladies (who had obviously imbibed a considerable number of wine samples) came staggering up. One of them was drawn to my display of grape-cluster earrings. She picked up a…"

Judi Markert replied to Alyx Morgan's discussion Art Fairs/Festivals - New Artist Connundrum & Questions
"There's a show in the Northeast Ohio area that does the jury thing a little differently. When you apply for the show you must send two checks, one for the jury fee and one for the booth. If you're not accepted they return your booth check…"

Judi Markert replied to Kelly Bort's discussion Cataract Surgery
"I had cataract surgery late last year. Somehow I missed the choice option (I have always been nearsighted) and ended up having to wear reading glasses to read my watch! I am getting used to it, though. I no longer need glasses for driving. And a…"

Judi Markert replied to Jim Dalton's discussion What's the worst question you have been asked at an art fair?
"To attract young buyers I have a rounder of $5 earrings. At least once per show someone asks if they're sterling silver. And last week a lady returned to my booth twice to try on a bracelet priced at $33. The clasp consists of a handmade…"

First show ever
Lake Catholic High School, Mentor, OH
What are the best things about art fairs
Meeting customers, being outdoors, exchanging insights with other artists
Best show ever and why
Put-in-Bay, OH. Did well, had fun, got some wonderful ideas and tips from other artists. That's where I learned where to purchase the tailored table covers I'd been lusting after (and couldn't figure out how to make). I save at least an hour per show with those babies!
Worst show ever and why
Third (and final) Lake Catholic show. My reserved table spot was given to someone else, visitors to the show tended to congregate in front of my booth to have LONG conversations, and I made $0 in stranger sales, $5 total.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
I searched Google for ways to attach tent weights
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I'm an Etsy shopaholic

Welcome to Art Fair Insiders, Judi.  I'm pleased to see you here and look forward to having you as part of our community.

When you have a chance, please stop by the "Discussions" area to introduce yourself to the rest of us. We all look forward to your participation here. Also, visit the "member map" and add your location. We have a lot to offer one another, experienced and newbie alike. Let's make this a dynamic site!

Many topics have already been discussed here before you joined us. You might like to try a search of your topic before you post your question. Just put your topic, canopy tents, jurying fees, Ann Arbor Art Fair, etc, into the search bar at the top of the right side of the page. You might be surprised that someone has already asked your question.

We also ask that all new members take a few moments of their time to read the code of conduct. You will find it at http://www.artfairinsiders.com/page/code-of-conduct. There are a few guidelines that all members will need to follow because , as in any social community, we all need to work together.

Best wishes, Connie Mettler

p.s. The best way to make this system easy to use is to click on the "Follow-Email me" link at the bottom of each Forum discussion that interests you. That way the system will email you automatically whenever anyone responds. It's a great time-saver.
