Collingswood show

Posted on August 25, 2012 at 9:57pm 6 Comments

Collingswood was the worst show I ever attended that was booked as a craft show.  Most was b/s.  Flea Market would have been a better title.

I have done 3 shows with this promoter and I will never do them again.  More and more b/s with each show.  

Surprisingly, the 3 art jewelers I saw said they did well.  Heck, they had no competition.
