Hi Connie,

Thank you for inviting me to your Art Fair Insiders. 

I am a beginner in the art fair circle and have only been accepted to one so far this year. My participation has been limited as my booth was not up to par. I have invested in a better tent, display panels (I made myself) and looked at a number of other really great displays by other via internet. I am now more confident that this investment will not be a problem for future jurors to accept me.

I am happy to have somewhere to follow the pro's for art fairs.

Thank you
