Years in the Art Fair Business


First show ever

Howell High School, Howell Michigan. It was a first year show. It never returned, but I did!

What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

The people are fascinating!

Best show ever and why

Saline shows. They're a fine craft show (which is what I do), and they know what they're doing. They bring in buying customers and treat their exhibitors very well.

Worst show ever and why

Metamora. Two days on the street, but we had to move our tents off the street overnight, then back the next morning. (It was my first year and I didn't know what I was doing...) The promoter was there for most of the first day, but didn't show up until halfway through the second day and left early because attendance was so bad. I actually made decent money for two days in the rain, and I really learned a LOT, but it was a pretty bad experience.
