Years in the Art Fair Business
Been earning my living with my art for many years, but have only logged a few in art fairs.
First show ever
Sidewalk art fair at 13 years old. We applied as a class. Had been doing batik on sheets of muslin. I didn't have the patience to iron off the wax. The judge came by, touched mine, said "UGH!" and walked away. I was crestfallen, but, apparently I got over it.

What are the best things about art fairs
Connecting with my audience, as well as other like minded artists. Seeing them again at the next show. Making business decisions and seeing them work out. Earning a living doing what I love to do.
Best show ever and why
The best is yet to come.
Worst show ever and why
There was one summer when I scheduled six shows, and got rained out of three, hurricaned out of a fourth. Lost each booth fee, of course. But even a bad show is another day in business. I keep that in mind.
