Best show ever and why
Blackstone, VA Arts & Craft show - a few years ago.

Two day show - Day 1 I was so buy selling I never had a chance to sit down! Great show for me that time.
Worst show ever and why
There have been a few where I couldn't sell a thing, but the worst show ever was not one of them. In fact it was a very well advertised show, indoors, lots of publicity, but in a rundown building with lots of resell. A friend stopped by and told me she loved the show because everything was so cheap. True. Never bothered going back. Never even made the entry fee back, forget expenses.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Happen stance.
