What are the best things about art fairs

Meeting the people. Making money

Best show ever and why

Any show in Mexico. Didnt always make much money, but they were fun.

Worst show ever and why

Milwaukee Public TV, winter 2014. Bitter cold just carrying things in from the car. Extremely low turnout. Took 20% fee of all sales and didnt send the check for 5 weeks.
