No one. I was surfing the web to find as much as I could about this whole Art Fair world so that I can somehow wiggle my way in and, lo, I stumbled upon this site and became engrossed.

Downers Grove

I just checked the site and I couldn't find any write-up for the Downers Grove show, mid-September. Anyone out there done this show? Any comments? It is one of Amy Ardmur's Chicagoland shows. She does so many in that condensed area during the good weather months. Is that a good thing or bad? Is it just too saturated with shows that the buyers are fed up; or, are there so many shows because one can't feed enough to the beast?

Lubbock, Tx Art Fair?

I am going to exhibit at the Woodlands Waterway show in Houston April 10th but since I am coming out from California, to maximize my trip, I thought I would apply to other Texas shows around that same time period. I was just accepted to the Lubbock Arts Festival for the following weekend but before I accept, I wanted to check if anyone out there has done this show and what they have to say about it. I could find no blog threads on the site relating to Lubbock. Anybody? Beuller...…

Bad News and Good News

Three weeks ago, while I was in Louisville, Ky, for the St James Court Art Fair, in the week preceding the show, my van was robbed and 3/4 of my beaded jewelry was stolen. I didn't realize it had happened because I wasn't using the van for driving around (I was there also to visit my son and granddaughter who live in that city) and didn't even notice it until I started out that fateful Thursday morning to go set up for the show.

Well, you can believe that I was devastated, in shock,…

Hi Kathleen -

Unfortunately, the Highlands Craft Show was a bust for me.  I pretty much made booth fee.  It's a nice show, a lot of high-quality work, but also some 'questionable' things.  It was not a good indicator when one exhibitor told me that someone on the show committee called him to ask him if he would be in the show last year.  I've applied several times to get in to the show and finally got in last year - but I think most everyone who applied got accepted.  If you're coming from CA, I'd strongly consider not doing it.  It seemed that clothing did okay there.  My jewelry was a bit too contemporary for the clientele.  An 'aged crowd,' it seemed that traditional, 'conservative' work did okay there.  I didn't apply this year and probably never will again.  I hope that this helps.  This is my experience with the show....
