"Thanks Connie. All good advice. I’d also like to hear from people who don’t do this any longer, why they left and their challenges. I think when deciding it’s best to get both sides"

"I have a Light Dome canopy, mesh sides, weights, etc if you're interested in a less expensive way to begin. I'm in the Dallas area and can give you some show pointers as well (I spent 46 years in the business doing art fairs solo.)"
