First show ever

Gingerbread House Art and Craft Show was my first show of any kind. My first real art show, though, was Boston Mills.

What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

Validation of my artwork.

Best show ever and why

Boston Mills was my best show to date, but I am just getting started. But this show was the largest venue I've showed in to date, and I was able to make a profit despite lousy weather.

Worst show ever and why

The Chagrin Falls Avant-garde show was my worst. The booth fee was high for me at the time, and I didn't sell a single item. Bad weather kept the crowd size down, but I don't know if I would've done better even so.
