What are the best things about art fairs

The people. Most come to the show by choice so they want to be there. The more people the more sales.

Best show ever and why

I'm new to the Art show biz so don't have a lot to compare. My best show was Burro days, the summer before Covid. Sold so much art I had to raid the art gallery where my work was shown. Took the art off the walls and sold it at the show.

Worst show ever and why

A small show in a small Colorado town. Sales were ok but it was so dusty. Everything was set up on a dirt road. Activities and people would kick up the dust and the wind would carry it. My art and myself was covered in dirt and dust.

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

I am searching for display panels to hang my art in my tent. I googled art display panels, clicked images and one image I clicked on went to this website. I can't communicate with any sellers unless I'm a member so here I am.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I just retired after 32 years as a UPS driver. I'm now a full time artist
