What are the best things about art fairs

Meeting customers, being outdoors, exchanging insights with other artists

Best show ever and why

Put-in-Bay, OH. Did well, had fun, got some wonderful ideas and tips from other artists. That's where I learned where to purchase the tailored table covers I'd been lusting after (and couldn't figure out how to make). I save at least an hour per show with those babies!

Worst show ever and why

Third (and final) Lake Catholic show. My reserved table spot was given to someone else, visitors to the show tended to congregate in front of my booth to have LONG conversations, and I made $0 in stranger sales, $5 total.
