What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
I love useful feedback & reactions to my line from customers and visitors at my display. Also interacting & networking with fellow artisans is very productive.
Best show ever and why
A Trunk Show held in my hostess' home during the winter holiday season was an excellent event. Patrons were able to interact a lot; shop & try on in a relaxed setting; and 2 ladies were inspired to order elaborate custom-made items.
Worst show ever and why
Standing outside in a thunderstorm near huge trees in a large city park I really questioned the feasibility of doing more shows that expose me to the elements, yet yielded few sales.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Jan Hubbard
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I collect turtle carvings & am trying my hand at indoor veggie gardening.
