Marysville Strawberry Festival
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
The people and fellow artists.
Best show ever and why
Fresh Paint in Everett a few years back. Fun show with good sales that closed out with two girls buying a few hundred dollars worth of prints while we were packing up.
Worst show ever and why
Best of the Northwest Spring show. It was in Quest Field event center which is so remote that you can't even find it on the Quest field web site - under the West bleachers of the field. It was on St Patrick's day and the roads were closed for a marathon. Hideous venue, virtually no sales, and expensive parking and fee.
Who referred you to Please be specific.

What is one fun fact about yourself?
I study martial arts and have a black belt.

Welcome to AFI Phil!!  You might want to join the Southwest and West Coast Artists groups since there's a contingent that does shows in our region that only hang out in that group!
