Profile Information

Your Medium
Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
Huntington Woods Garden Art Show
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
The comaraderie among the artists and the interaction with customers.
Best show ever and why
Its a tie - Sugarloaf - Gaithersburg, MD 2003 & St Joseph MI 2004. At both shows I was so busy I never really had a chance to sit down.
Worst show ever and why
Trenton, MI - same weekend as Plymouth. Turns out it was mostly buy/sell. They advertised that everything was handmade. I left after the first day - live and learn.
Who referred you to Please be specific.

I thought about going 'in the hole' and ordering up something REALLY PRICEY for you, but decided there's nothing more special than a Red Ribbon for those who put the FINE in ART. THANKS! KATHLEEN
