Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Artisan GUild
What are the best things about art fairs
Patrons have the best eye for art, creativity..
Best show ever and why
Lake Geneva Garden Club Boutique. Held in July. My jewelry is very colorful which lends itself to successful summers sales.
Worst show ever and why
A local organaization show allowing children to shop for gifts under $10. Mothers were directed to another boutique for adults. Mothers who attended the show brought their other small children and were not interested or able to shop. Boutique was poorly run.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Found it online.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I love to hunt for vintage/antique jewelry elements at flea markets, antique stores, garage and estate sales.
