Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I have been following this thread pretty well. I don't think I've seen this one:
Do you have a website?
I think "worst" may now have translated to "dumbest".
And to this day, I am flummoxed by what this woman interpreted that I created.
It was an easy afternoon in Lake Geneva, WI. We had a great fair, my neighbor Sue and I, when a pair of long time friends sauntered through her booth first. She gave me the eye roll...so I was interested in seeing what the gals would be saying in my booth.
One fussed about but did eventually buy a pair of earring.
As they were leaving, her friend said she just thought the sun-catchers were over priced. But they sure were pretty.
I must have looked very vacant because she took me over to my pin and earring sets and pointed.
I asked her why she thought they were sun catchers?
She said they were hanging on ribbons..............of course.
Were you doing the Venetian Festival or Art in the Park? I've done the Venetian Festival 2 times. First year made a good profit. Last year didn't even cover expenses. If you did Art in the Park, any advice on how they compare? I considered doing Art in the Park rather than Venetian Festival this year but ended up shying away from both. BTW, I work in glass mosaics and fused glass, including fused glass jewelry.
That is just a paraphrase for, "I'm not buying, but I want to give you a compliment."
Except for those who quickly hand you THEIR business card, and offer to design one for you.
I was at Winter Park and a lady (ok, she was a redneck, waaaay out of her trailer park) asked me why I painted a Publix shopping bag in my painting. ( Publix is a grocery store that uses green plastic bags.)
Framer Dude, ever quick with the wit, said, "Well, she couldn't find any hypodermic needles. They cleaned the beaches up really well the past couple of years."
Painting in question is below.
This thread has kept me in stitches! LOL
