Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
I started out sticking my toe in to the water of things by doing local farmer's/Saturday markets. Once I had enough courage, my first real show was the Quincy, IL Midsummer Arts Faire, where I won an award! It was a great way to get started!!

What are the best things about art fairs
I love getting to meet other creative artists and getting to meet new, interesting people. The hardest day at an art show is still 100 times better than the hardest day in the office!
Best show ever and why
Hard to say... Love doing the Quincy show, as their group takes such amazing care of the artists and really treat us like royalty. Love doing my St. Louis area shows because they are so darn profitable!
Worst show ever and why
GOLD COAST ART FAIR 2010! Too many artists, horrible set up, HORRIBLE sales and just all around everything bad.... First and hopefully only show where I ever lost money in doing it.
