Those of you who do Florida shows:  Is anyone applying?  Does anyone know anything about the promoter, Orlando art & Living Expo, Inc?  I have the application in hand, and am trying to decide…Continue

My Mom and grandmother both did lots of crafts, and needle arts, so I grew up sewing, embroidering, and other crafts...Learned to knit and crochet as a young adult.  When I was in my early 40's I…Continue

What are the best things about art fairs
sales, contacts for commission work, and contacts for possible students
Best show ever and why
Mossy Creek Barnyard Festival in Perry, GA. Oct 2010. Outside event in the woods. Wide walking area for attendees. Whole site gets new, fresh straw on ground to help keep dust down, and any possible mud. Promoters are always accessible and friendly. Booth spaces have space between them: Artists are not packed in on top of each other. Strictly juried, and junk in accepted. Must have invitation to apply. Will go back and do this in spring.
Worst show ever and why
Have had some really bad ones. Maybe Knoxville Christmas Fair in Nov 2010. Started as arts/crafts, now mostly commercial stuff. Did not make booth rent in 3 days. Only 2 small sales last day. Won't do that again.

Hi, fellow artisans!  I lurk here more than post, ofcourse, but thought I might just post about an inaugural show in Florida the first weekend in .  I noticed earlier that there was a post from someone wanting input on it.  It is the St Johns River Artfest in Sanford, Florida.  I have been a stained glass artist for over 20 years, but doing shows only about 5.  I have confined myself to Georgia shows, because it is so expensive to travel, but decided to offer my glass to other audiences this…
