Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
At my most recent art fair, my booth was on the street, right up against the curb. I have my chair at the back of my tent behind tables. It was getting sunny, so I decided to scoot my chair up a bit. Apparently when I moved it, I managed to get the back legs right at the crack between the blacktop and the cement gutter.
When I sat back down, I just ... kept ... going. I ended up falling straight back, shade umbrella and all. Nothing was hurt but my dignity, luckily.
Of course, I couldn't be the least bit subtle about it; I screamed all the way down. People came running from all over to make sure I was OK which was really nice but that much more embarrassing.
I did win an Award for Excellence which I'm pretty sure was for my 3D glass mosaics vs. my performance.
LOL I have people come up to me all the time and think they know me from somewhere. At one event a lady came up and started talking to me addressing me as Morningstar. She talked away and my muddled brain was trying to decide where I knew her from so finally, I asked. "Oh, we have never met!" she smiled. "I saw you on a video at the college!" Nice to know I haven't lost all of my memory after all.
