We just got accepted to the fall show and were a bit overwhelmed with the booth location choices. Is there a prime spot? Do we need electric? Are we just newbies and they are going to put us in…Continue

What is your website?

What are the best things about art fairs
The artists and making a living as an artist, if i may call myself and artist. The books on tape, the music, the singing in the car, seeing the country, filming our trips, our friends we get to travel and do shows with....sometimes making some decent money for a weekend of work.
Best show ever and why
Philadelphia Craft, i felt like i had "arrived". We loved Guilford and Lyndhurst,,,but Brookside was our best recieved show, we felt like "Art Stars"we were floating on a pink cloud all 1200 miles home.
Worst show ever and why
Do i have to say? The worst? Okay ACC Baltimore, we got pulled over by the police on the way there and were detained and accused of being everything from drug dealers to gun runners to counterfeit designer clothing knock off artists, and that was before we even did the worst show ever, we thought we were taking crazy pills and the crowd acted as if we were invisible, the 4 hour wait to load up, we lost tons of money, everything about that show for us was pure hell.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.

How can shows not refund booth fees in this economy?

Posted on April 7, 2012 at 3:30pm 21 Comments

I just found out Lake Forest Illinois does not refund your booth fee if you have to cancel, and their reply/pay date is one day before Long's Park, so if we get into Long's Park and decide to do it instead of Lake Forest, we pay both booth fees. How do shows get away with this? I know it is only $395, but it is $395, and right now we have alot of other bills we can pay with that money. Is it possible to call and ask for an exception of one day?

ACC Baltimore....this past weekend crossing Maryland off my list.

We drank the kool aid and tried the Acc Baltimore Show. This would be a world class show if they would reduce the number of artists from 650 to 325...the booth fee and electric was around $1500, we do not use credit cards so this was a real crap shoot.

I was told by old timers you have to go big at these shows, double booth, corner, etc. I made a huge misstep and feel crap on a cracker right now!

The load out line took a minimum of 2 hours of waiting, our friends were in line…
