Haven't done one yet! I'm a relatively new glass artist, and am trying to decide if I want to take the next step and buy a booth and apply to art fairs. I am hoping this website could provide some real-life information to help me decide on a direction.
What are the best things about art fairs
Love, love, love to see art handmade by real people! Fun to meet the artists, and be around so much creativity.
Best show ever and why
My favorite show I ever attended is the Cottonwood Art show in Dallas, Texas. It features tremendous artists, and a lot of the art shown was affordable.
Worst show ever and why
Never been to a bad art fair - yet.

What is one fun fact about yourself?
I'm a retired psychotherapist who discovered glass art, and now I can't stop!!!
