Profile Information

Your Medium
Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
First Sundays at an Art Gallery in the West Loop of Chicago
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
Meeting new people and sharing my art with the audience.
Best show ever and why
Morton Grove Farmers' Market Winter Market. It is a few blocks from my home, in the town I grew up in. I am well known in the community and my business is widely supported. My booth fee (for a double booth) as a percentage of my total sales is lower than ANY other show. I see old friends, teachers, and neighbors from my childhood.
Worst show ever and why
VFW Show. The only "customers" were the handful of women who set up the show. They advertised 10x10 spaces and then provided 8x5 spaces. We were all crammed into a tiny room with 3' aisles. My sales were less than the very small show fee.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
I found it through Google.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I own two separate businesses which are completely different from each other, and my boyfriend is also an artist who works in yet a different medium.

Welcome to Art Fair Insiders, Lindsey.  I'm pleased to see you here and look forward to having you as part of our community.

When you have a chance, please add a photo of yourself and stop by the "Discussions" area to introduce yourself to the rest of us. We all look forward to your participation here. Also, visit the "member map" and add your location. We have a lot to offer one another, experienced and newbie alike. Let's make this a dynamic site!

Many topics have already been discussed here before you joined us. You might like to try a search of your topic before you post your question. Just put your topic, canopy tents, jurying fees, Ann Arbor Art Fair, etc, into the search bar at the top of the right side of the page. You might be surprised that someone has already asked your question.

We also ask that all new members take a few moments of their time to read the code of conduct. You will find it at There are a few guidelines that all members will need to follow because , as in any social community, we all need to work together.

Best wishes, Connie Mettler

p.s. The best way to make this system easy to use is to click on the "Follow-Email me" link at the bottom of each Forum discussion that interests you. That way the system will email you automatically whenever anyone responds. It's a great time-saver.

Thank you, Lindsey...I mostly sell at galleries and gift shops, haven't really taken the plunge into art fairs yet, but maybe someday...

We just relocated to a pretty hip and arty community, so will be shopping my stuff around starting tomorrow.  I hope I can find a venue that won't take too big a cut or someone that will buy up front...will let you know how it goes.

Thanks again,
