Reposting this for your edification ... and because I liked it, from member Jeff Owen:
Before the show:
•Eat a good breakfast.
•Pick up some flowers for your booth (your gallery).
•Keep your space clean – sweep and dust.
•Price everything clearly.
•Say good morning to your neighbors.
During the show:
•Smile all day.
•Never sit in or around your booth.
•Don’t use your Smartphone except for taking cc’s.
•Engage everyone who walks by. “How are you folks ?”
•Never “sell” your work, let people buy it.
•Talk less, listen more.
•Make sure your booth is not a cave, nobody goes into caves.
•Wear comfortable clothing and shoes.
•Eat when you are hungry and drink a lot of water.
After the show:
•Be thankful you are an artist.
•Count your blessings.
•Pack up your booth with care – take your time, relax.
•If you sold well, congratulate yourself.
•If you did not sell well, chalk the show up to marketing.
