I'm not really certain where this post should go, or if I should even post it at all, but I have been stewing on this for a bit, and feel I have to get it off of my chest for my own peace of mind. I…Continue

Hi,     I am relatively new to the artfair scene (couple years) and need to do a short string of shows in Florida this winter to break up the long stretch of emptiness in my neck of the woods (NC). I…Continue

"Good and thorough post, Kevin. Regarding Howard Alan (yes, he does advertise with us) I still think there is a disconnect somewhere between what you did and what they did. I am not being an apologist, but it seems contrary to what I know about their…"

I'm not really certain where this post should go, or if I should even post it at all, but I have been stewing on this for a bit, and feel I have to get it off of my chest for my own peace of mind. I understand that I may be "rocking the boat" here, and could potentially be "blacklisted" so to speak, but I guess I will just have to take that chance. There are really two issues that I would like to address here, but they are quite closely related. A couple weeks ago I posted a thread seeking…See More

"Sometimes a Howard Alan show is still listed on ZAPP, but when you actually click the link it will tell you if it is closed."

"I wouldn't worry about unscrupulous actions by the Howard Alan people, Kevin. He is well known in the business and would have been called out a long time ago if he was taking money from artists when a show was closed."

"Thank You Connie. That is the type of information I was after. Although my in-laws will be staying on the west coast, I have applied to a few shows on the east. I will likely drive back and forth during the week. FWIW... I did contact Howard allen…"

"I get that... I guess that I wasn't expecting the phone number that I got from the website to go directly to his cell phone as he is trying to run a show. I was really expecting to get the office, or even voicemail. So, specific shows aside,…"

"Ditto! Call during office hours. He probably was at a show and not available to take care of this. He/his staff will handle your call respectfully during business hours. Count on it."
