Alison Armstrong commented on Leslie Jensen's blog post Sausalito: This is it!
"I did this show in 2008 and everything about it was amazing. How were your sales?"

Alison Armstrong commented on T'Louise Willis's blog post Patrons with cameras
"It's futile to fight it; like teaching a pig to sing. It just annoys you and the pig. In this day and age, you could be losing sales by getting all snooty about photos, especially if they're taken with a crappy iphone camera.  I have…"

Alison Armstrong replied to Larry Berman's discussion seven foot Pro Panels with EZUp?
"Larry, I have the 7-ft propanels and used them with my Costco EZ-up Caravan tent.  It takes a little juggling and creativity with your layout because the stabilizer bars on the top can interfere with the tent roof bars, but it can be done."

Alison Armstrong commented on Sue Lukas's blog post Amy Amdur Show
"If this is a juried art show, especially one with high booth fees, why does the promoter allow commercial merchants there?  To me that is a sign of a low-class show and one I would never consider doing."

Alison Armstrong commented on Michelle Sholund's blog post 40 Question Craft Artist Blog Series - Question #35 - How do you dress for Success for an Art Fair?
"Try Zazzle, if you are a 2-D artist. I had some t-shirts made with my art on them."

Alison Armstrong commented on Connie Mettler's blog post Call for Artists: Artexpo New York
"Anyone here ever done this?"

Alison Armstrong commented on steve appel's blog post Could some of you comment on southwest and west shows
"I guess it depends on what your media & style are -- but I'll comment on the shows I've done. Scottsdale is a lovely, laid-back show with excellent staff and a beautiful setting, but it's been one of the lower-sales shows…"

Alison Armstrong commented on Connie Mettler's blog post Call for Artists: Scottsdale Fine Arts Festival
"I've done Scottsdale several times, it is a lovely place and the artists are treated well. But I'd have to take issue with their claim that the "average attendee" is "between the ages of 30-65." I would say that well…"

Alison Armstrong commented on Katherine McNeill's blog post Cherry Creek Artfestival
"Don't take it personally, Katherine. I got into Cherry Creek for the first time last year, and had my worst sales of the season. I made less than a quarter of the sales I did in my favorite local show, and less than half of what I did at…"

Alison Armstrong replied to Beth Schoen Foushee's discussion are there any trustworthy ways to make your own mesh display walls or other ways to hang wall art safely in an art show tent?
"A few years ago I looked into making my own mesh panels, and the raw materials for anything strong enough to hang art from would have cost far more than purchasing the ready made mesh panels from Flourish. I did end up purchasing the Flourish panels…"
