Meeting people. Other artists, patrons and organizers. It's great fun and very rewarding.
Best show ever and why
I think my best show -NOT $$$ wise- was Peoria Il. The art guild and people working the show were the most wonderful I have ever worked with. They had fun and made it fun for the artists.
Worst show ever and why
Art on the Square in Madison Wisc. Got in after 3 years. Had violent food poisoning the evening of setup so my sister put up the "New" tent and display pretty much by herself. A front end loader was parked 3 feet behind the tent leaking oil and I zeroed!
One the way home I blew a tire and it wrecked my rear air cond and heating.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
Up north of the cities we did not get much,about 3" and blowing. Buts it's very cold about 8 below the last two mornings and only a forecasted high of 12 above. You're not missing anything!
Gotta keep the kilns full and running to save on gas-yeah right!
