First show ever

My first show was at a church show where I sold all but one item - I was hooked every since.

What are the best things about art fairs

Meeting and talking to the people who will be fans and collectors of your work.


Best show ever and why

My best show was several years ago at a juried out door street festival. I won a first prize ribbon in the category - I can't remember what the category I entered. I sold out that day.


Worst show ever and why

The worst show was one where only 25 people came through the whole weekend and the only food vendor left at 1:00. It was pretty pathetic.


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

Never left a show early - I am there to the end as you can get your best sales at the end of a show.

  • Hi Michelle,

    I just saw your excellent article in your blog about Business Resources. I'd be pleased if you are interested for you to put that article here, and/or to start it here and have it link to your site. Or, I could copy/paste it into my blog posting giving you credit. What works for you the best that would not mean my taking ownership of it -- it is your work and your ideas, but deserves to be seen by more audiences.

    Additionally, I visited this blog another day and i was going to leave a comment, but I couldn't figure out how to do that...it took me to another site(s)....help!
  • Thanks Michelle, for adding artfairinsiders.com to your blog post about sending out applications! January is a busy month - seemingly devoted to applications.
