What are the best things about art fairs

Getting instant feedback about my work. They vote with their wallets.

Best show ever and why

Chevy chase Catholic church Bazaar. Had a line of women waiting to buy and they each were encouraging the others to purchase more. Plus were patient when the first woman kept adding to her cart and taking a lot of time to finalize her large purchase.

Worst show ever and why

Charlottesville Junior League Mistletoe Market. Overhyped, underwhelmed. I drove 3 hours each way on one day for very few sales.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I used to be a backup singer in my 20's.
