Best show ever and why
Art on Porches in Syracuse, I sold most of my work!
Worst show ever and why
Don't want to say because they are improving. But it was a far distance to carry supplies, was not allowed to drive. No electricity nor WiFi. Then pouring rain stopped crowd and made packing up miserable. I sold 0!
