What are the best things about art fairs

talking to other artists, cupcakes at Birmnigham, meals at East Lansing, winning awards, making money

Best show ever and why

East Lansing Art Fair 2011. They validated parking, you could set up the day before, they gave you actually good value coupons for the food court, I won the top award a $1500 purchase award, they had a full dinner with quality food and indoors on Saturday night. I felt appreciated for my participation and my work.

Worst show ever and why

Krasl 2010, sales were okay, definitely not what I expected for the apparent quality of the show. They provided some meals which was nice, but did not have the food out as long as they said in the info packet and wouldn't give me anything when I went during the scheduled time but pretzels, and said I should just go buy something. Also said my work was "cute and crafty".

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

I've just seen the name a lot and I look at it for reviews of shows. And I think my mom uses it to post her shows, Bonnie Lowe.
