What are the best things about art fairs

People: fellow artists, art show patrons and enthusiasts.

Best show ever and why

Alexandria King Street Festival: enthusiastic crowds, significant sales to new, happy collectors.

Worst show ever and why

One in the Hamptons: extremely expensive to do, tiny attendance, dismal sales despite some great artists and art.
