Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
Benefit for a home for unwed mothers - 1978. I made $28 and had to pay a 20% commission!
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
Selling. Meeting/visiting other artists and seeing their artwork.
Best show ever and why
Cherry Creek Arts Festival (all 8 years that I got in): awesome sales!
Worst show ever and why
Oooohhh! So many! Any show - and there are quite a few of them - where I had to drive 2,000 miles round trip and didn't even make expenses.

6 PM: vans not allowed on show site until that time, then artists had to also get in dinner line at 6 PM; then artists had to get in line to check in at 6:30 PM; then artists had to rush for their vans, rush to their booth location (unknown until 6:30), then set up. And there were 300 of us!!! I left the show when I discovered my booth location was on a side street: 0 sales! Gasparilla 2009.
