What are you wanting to know about it?

O.K. When I saw your post I went to the show website since I don't know anything about the show. There I see a familiar face selling his jewelry, and he's an artist for whom I have a great deal of respect and really love his work. We've been in quite a number of shows together, too. He does plenty in that area since he's from Athens, GA. SO, I might be inclined to get into that show myself if I had an empty weekend and it fit my schedule. But that photo of him may have been taken a long time ago, and he might not go that show any more since he might not like it. Then again, he might do very well there every year and is looking forward to being there again next time. If I see him before I apply, I might ask him about the show. We've done similar small events in Georgia together as well as large events elsewhere. He does 4Bridges and won two awards there in 2014. When I looked at the zapplication info for the show, I didn't see the Guild show offering any awards, so that might be the reason I wouldn't do the show (I have a 70% award winning rate and need that award money for income since it can offset lackluster sales.)

Does this help any? Good luck. WOOHOO!

yes and thanks, if you see him, do ask, at this point I'm just plain curious.

Hey Linda,

I had done this show a long while back...wore my 2005 T-shirt just yesterday, in fact. My media was jewelry (porcelain) and I had used it as a filler show, as I was traveling from NJ.

I liked it. Not fast-paced, not sleepy, either...fairly small. I looked up the reviews for this one on this site and see that another exhibitor wrote a blog post (Festival tag, page 3) from 2011 and would concur with his sentiments: The community seems to be supportive and sales were decent. I am planning on returning because I now live in the area.

After much thought I decline this show. So now I'm looking for another show. Do you or anyone know anything about the Myrtle Beach Show in October. I have heard a little, some good and some not so very good. Wish this was easier:)))))
