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 ArtFairInsiders.com? 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.

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 http://www.artfairinsiders.com/page/code-of-conduct. There are a few guidelines that all members will need to follow because , as in any social community, we all need to work together.

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.
