What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
Hearing lots of lovely comments from customers.
Meeting other artists.
Selling my stuff!
Best show ever and why

Worst show ever and why
Some show in Topeka KS in an agricultural sale barn. I made $40. If you looked down any aisle, you'd see the same "country" colors painted onto all manner of wooden objects.
Who referred you to Please be specific.

Anyone done these shows?  I applied to both the Balloon Fest one (wait list) and am accepted into the Thanksgiving weekend one (indoors).  It's a two-day drive for me.  Is it a decent show?  Is it worth it?
