Art Fair Insiders

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.
