Best show ever and why

I don't have a "best show" yet...just a first show and that one goes to the "worst show" section.


Worst show ever and why

Well, it was my first studio tour. I call it a show since it was at a fellow artist's place outdoors. My husband decided to make my walls out of pegboard. The holes were the wrong size and I couldn't find the attachments that would work with hanging art. I ended up purchasing wooden shelving on clearance THE NIGHT BEFORE and put them together with hinges. I shared a carport with three other artists whom one had the idea to put my display in the center (not secured). The wind picked up and tipped my whole display over, but was saved by several customers. Of course, I moved it back to the corner and secured it to the posts.
