What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
As an attendee -- the opportunity to be delighted. As an exhibitor -- the opportunity for entrepreneur-ship.
Best show ever and why
A local little fundraiser called Art in the Barn. Close to home, many friends there -- basically a party. And a few sales to boot.
Worst show ever and why
Fountain Square, Evanston, IL, 2008. A microburst destoyed about a quarter of the show -- including the entire row I was in.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
Connie did, when I contacted her to purchase her older Armstrong display screens.

Two sources for cheap frames for "impulse buyers".
One is www.pictureframes.com - they sell a box full of very small frames 4x6" I think. You have to buy quantity.
The other is Walmart; they usually have a stand-alone display of 8x10s and sometimes other sizes for around $2.50-$3.50. They have a surplus of whatever they have a surplus, so sometimes they are not so nice and sometimes they are very nice and come with glass and backing.
Good luck and thanks for your nice comments on my book!
