"Bernard thanks for your reply.  We are getting such mixed reviews on this show......I guess it really depends on who is selling what.  Our price point is fairly high so we will need a lot of luck."

Woodstock-New Paltz Art Shows- Anyone have experience with these shows?

Hi everyone, We were accepted to the Woodstock-New Paltz shows and would like to know what experiences anyone has had at these shows. How was the camping area? It will be our first time camping at a show-(I will be miserable without a shower).  Were the shows  well run?  Good crowd that showed some knowledge of art? If so what was your price point? I realize these are all subjective topics, but any information is helpful. Thanks againSee More

"Paradise City in Northampton can be a very good show depending on your market. It's a large female double income community with disposable income. Larry Berman"
