What are the best things about art fairs

Talking to the people who are interested in my work.

Best show ever and why

Chautauqua Crafts Alliance - great volunteers & marketing, appropriate audience for the work, beautiful grounds, usually lovely weather.

Worst show ever and why

For me, it was the Clothesline Festival in Rochester. I was WAY in the back - very little foot traffic and I spent more on the booth fee than I made in sales.

Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.

The Flourish Company's website.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I bought my first kayak at age 68 and love going out - once/week all through the season :-)

  • Thanks, Connie. I did a search on a variety of terms for editing my sale listing, and came up empty. So I'm still looking for instructions on how to do that. Thank you.
