What are the best things about art fairs
Interacting with fairgoers and other artists is fun and I always learn a lot.
Best show ever and why
The Art at the Lake Festival 2021 in Pleasant Hill, IA is a beautiful outdoor venue with paved walkways, attentive sponsors and is very well attended. My highest grossing show, people were really ready to buy my jewelry!
Worst show ever and why
Craft and vendor fair in Boone, IA 2021 It was located in an industrial garage and was very dark. I’ve learned my lesson re vendor fairs; Avon and press on nails were in sight of my booth. Attendees seemed to be looking only for bargains and household items. Very low sales
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
I found ArtFairInsiders.com from an online search for outdoor booth lighting.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I’m equally right brained and left brained. I majored in sculpture and printmaking at the University of Utah. I decided not to get an MA and teach, I needed some kind of career! I moved to CA and got a mechanical engineering degree. In retirement I turned to jewelry making and textile art.
