"I agree that hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and masks are critical to help provide a level of assurance that the vendor and their customers need to feel safe in the booths. Unfortunately, not all surfaces can be adequately disinfected…"

Keith Phillips commented on Kathleen J. Clausen's blog post What to do: Jewelry artists, how to handle touching and trying-on considering the Covid situation?
"I use a UV-C ultraviolet wand to sanitize my cell phone, card reader, and jewelry.  I use the brand Germ Cide X, which is a compact wand that's safe to use and directs the light toward the object you're sanitizing while shielding you…"

Keith Phillips commented on Nels johnson's blog post Vero Beach Under the Oaks—Very sad story
"Nels - I'm not sure where you got that information about Trump's banning all gatherings of 10 people or more, but I would start checking the accuracy of those sources. That was a recommendation, not an executive order or mandate.…"

Keith Phillips replied to Veronica e Raj's discussion First Outdoor Fair - Supply Checklist
"I took the liberty of taking Renee Davis's excellent list and putting it into a Word Table so that changes could easily be made or items deleted and added.  I'm new to this site, so I hope that the file gets uploaded for you."

Thanks Connie, I've been receiving your newsletter for some time now, but had never signed up for commenting on it. I used to make my living as a professional wildlife bronze sculptor until the bottom dropped out of the art market in the mid 80's. After that, I went back to work in the oil industry, moved to Alaska where there are no foundries, and stayed after I retired. I started working in glass and the shows you list on your newsletter are much too far away to attend.  I use your site for the information provided by the other members to help me with the how to information on outside art fairs. Your newsletter is a great source of information and guidance for artists who are new to this type of sales.  Thanks for your dedication and work at putting this important resource together.
