First show ever
First "real" show was Central Washington University's Warefair in December 2005, but we'd sold our work on small spaces provided by my FIL at gun shows in Reno & Las Vegas as well as at impromptu sales at yard sales, etc of friends.

What are the best things about art fairs
I enjoy the 1:1 interaction with customers and the comradrie of other artists.
Best show ever and why
Richland, WA Art in the Park 2011. Best sales yet, pleasant atmosphere, low booth fee (plus commission), appreciative customers.
Worst show ever and why
Bellingham, WA Pacific Arts Holiday Market 2011. Three 3-day weekends in a row far enough from home to require an overnight stay each weekend. Booth fees, commission, and travel expenses were barely covered by the sales we made and the promoters made no effort to help the situation or apologize for it. Promoters actually became defensive when approached with friendly suggestions to increase foot traffic (which was almost non-existant).
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.

Welcome to ArtFairInsiders.com, Jess.   I'm pleased to see you here and look forward to having you as part of our community.

When you have a chance, please add a photo of yourself and stop by the "Discussions" area to introduce yourself to the rest of us. We all look forward to your participation here. Also, visit the "member map" and add your location. We have a lot to offer one another, experienced and newbie alike. Let's make this a dynamic site!

Many topics have already been discussed here before you joined us. You might like to try a search of your topic before you post your question. Just put your topic, canopy tents, jurying fees, Ann Arbor Art Fair, etc, into the search bar at the top of the right side of the page. You might be surprised that someone has already asked your question.

We also ask that all new members take a few moments of their time to read the code of conduct. You will find it at http://www.artfairinsiders.com/page/code-of-conduct. There are a few guidelines that all members will need to follow because , as in any social community, we all need to work together.

Best wishes,

Connie Mettler
