Tip of the Day: OMG! ads all over the site

I'm so sorry ... we were "optimizing" our google ads and lo and behold they multiplied like stone ducks across AFI! We're working to get them gone asap.

SO SORRY. Embarrassing ...

Bonita Springs Art Show—First one of 2019

Posted by Nels johnson on February 19, 2019 at 2:09pm 0 Comments

Well, this is my 45th year in the biz.

2018 ended in a sad fizzle so I was looking for positive vibes to kickstart 2019.

I have done this show many times since its inception.

It moved a few years back from a location off Highway 41, a well travelled road,

to Old Highway 41 located in…

Artigras, Jupiter,Fl—-Requiem for an Art Show, long past it’s glory

Posted by Nels johnson on February 19, 2019 at 1:15pm 1 Comment

I have done this show more than 25 times since the early 90’s.

But, it is time to say aloha.  It no longer works for me, and also does not work for many others.

The attendees pay a $13 entrance fee and then walk down the middle of the road without looking or going into many booths.  Go figure.

In it’s day this was a major show with sales easily in The &5K-$7k range.

Sadly those days are long gone.

Facebook Sales

I have a business page and a shop on that FB page. However, I have yet to sell any prints from it. I admit, I have nearly 200 followers, so I am probably a long way from building a huge following or contact list. Is it a given that we need to pay for a service to help us build the list? It seems very overwhelming to try and tackle yet another huge obstacle. It seems there isn't enough time in my day already, after creating, processing, posting to social media, printing, matting, framing(if…

Flourish Canopy Tent 10' x 10' white and Pro Panels with shelving (beige)

Posted by Dawn Weber on February 19, 2019 at 9:06am 0 Comments

We have closed our art show business and would like to sell our tent.  The tent was used for only a few shows.  It is clean.  It has been kept in hard plastic containers in a temperature controlled environment.  So it is in good condition.  One corner zipper is broken part way down.  However, the tent does close and the bottom of that corner can be secured easily.  Tent comes with an awning as well.

Pro Panels are beige.  They have also been kept in house in a temperature…
