Your Medium
Years in the Art Fair Business
just starting
First show ever
West Dundee, heritage festival. I learned fast that art and craft shows are really for crafts. I sold some work, got a lot of comp[compliments but most people just were willing to spend the money.
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
I have only done 3 so far. As a newbee networking and learning from other artistes has been the most important thing for me. Advertising, via business cards has increased the hits to my web site.
Best show ever and why
I have not have enough shows to give an answer yet.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Bella Tesori Soap Betty Shre
