  • Carol, thank you so much for supporting Art Fair Insiders during our 2015 Pledge Drive.
  • Thanks so much for this support. I appreciate it a lot and it keeps us going in our mission to support artists who choose this crazy life style.
  • Carol, thanks so much for all your support. It is appreciated!
  • Hi Carol,

    I'm actually giving the show a rest this year, it's been declining so I'm trying something else this year.

  • I'd love to see your setup. Send a photo when you get one!

  • Hi Carol

    Glad you liked my little video. The tables are made from plastic shelves from Walmart:

    One unit made the two tables. I then wrapped them with "RV carpeting" from Costco. The carpeting looks like expensive podium covers, but is really cheap. It's made from recycled plastic bottles and is indestructible.

    Best of luck!

  • Hi Carol,  isn't it "terrible" that a job has to interfere with what we love to do??   :)

    When is the Melbourne Florida show?  I have a brother in Miami and a brother in law in Melbourne and I was planning on visiting this winter.  I was going to see if there were any shows that I could get  into for February or March.

    Let me know.

    Happy New Year!


  • Hi Carol!  How are you doing?  Have you been in any craft fairs this season?

  • Hi Carol,


    Nice to hear from you!  I am reluctant to share the name of the show that was "just awful". I dislike giving negative info but I will think about it. 

    I want to become more familiar with ArtFairInsiders.com and hope that I can build my inventory and get into some great shows next year.  My kiln "died" and i cannot fire my pottery which I am so upset over.  Throwing pottery is not only fun but therapeutic as well.  When I throw I lose myself it is great!


    How are you doing?  Are you busy with shows for the holidays?
