First show ever
Cigar Box Purses at Strawberry Days Cedarburg WI
What are the best things about art fairs
I call it the Bedouin Experience. Setting up my tent at early dawn when it is fresh and cool. Displaying my art so customers are curious and come into my space. Helping my customers understand how my art will enhance their lives. Packing up the remaining pieces and taking down my tent and stealing away into the night.
Best show ever and why
Christmas Market American Club Koehler, WI because of the sales volume and demographics of the customers $$$
Holy Hill Hubertus WI Venue by huge cathedral on top of a hill in the rolling hills of SE WI. Artfair run by Monks, Nuns and church members. Fall event. Huge monied crowds.
Worst show ever and why
Custers Last Stand - I think it was Evanston, Illinois. The crowd consisted of many shirtless guys and Bikini-topped gals (in all fairness it was really sweltering) - several of them with live snakes hung around their necks. Aisles were only 4-5 feet across and then the Chicago Elevated Train loomed and rumbled over the street about 30 feet away. My art got covered with a fine dust.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
I couldn't compete with the multitudes of rug-hooked Green Bay Packers Toilet Seat Covers. I got disgusted - pulled up early and didn't come back for the second day. I really goofed on this venue - although it was juried.
