First show ever

I'd rather not remember - it was that much of a disaster!

What are the best things about art fairs

The ones that are well managed, well laid out, and helpful for first-time vendors.

Best show ever and why

The first Richmond National Folk Festival - weather was bad one day, set-up and take down were not easy, but sales were stupendous.

Worst show ever and why

2006 Celebrate Fairfax, Fairfax, VA. Terrible layout for artisans/crafters resulted in next to no traffic for any of us (everyone went to the rides, music and commercial vendors), poor judging, over 12 hour days (3 1/2 days long), and county police insisting ALL attendees be out before we could bring in vehicles. Only positive aspect was the county employee volunteers who were friendly and helpful, but couldn't do much else.

  • Hello Walt! Thanks for referring Adrienne to the site!
  • Welcome, Walt! Such a pleasure to find all of you folks from Virginia joining us.

    I'll have to tell you I was plenty confused when I started approving the photos -- hats, okay, then suddenly wood turnings! Does this person have multiple personalities? Then I came to your page here and I'm a little mollified :)
