What are the best things about art fairs

The friends you make, the inspiration you feel from others, the changing atmospheres, the challenges!

Best show ever and why

57th St. Art Fair...words cannot describe. It's a big show with "regular" volunteers in the heart of Chicago...yet it feels like coming home. It's a very intimate, comfortable show.

Worst show ever and why

...oh my...do I have to? Southwest Chicago Suburbs...won't name which one...not an arts community at all. Didn't make a sale and got my booth destroyed by a woman who lost control of her wheelchair. Worse yet, I had ONE special order that got lost in the mail and I had to remake it at my cost. Yup, didn't do that one again.

Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.

Why, that would be the fabulous and wonderful Geri Wegner!
