Got the 4-star Renaissance.  Started at $45.  At $50 I got the offer to bid $65 and win, which I ignored.  Bid $55 and then $58, which won.  $56 or $57 might work.  This hotel gets rated very highly…Continue

Las Olas II - a Howard Alan event

Posted on March 4, 2014 at 9:29am 5 Comments

This is called "II" because there is another event in January. It's held on Las Olas Blvd., in an area of restaurants and expensive shops. Set-up begins at 5 AM Saturday morning, but runs smoothly because there are numerous associates directing traffic. The weather was perfect, high 70s and sunny. The crowds showed up, and bought. We had a lot of people from our mailing list and many new patrons. It was our best Las Olas ever. We're looking forward to doing it again. I would add some photos to… Continue

St. Armand's Circle (Sarasota, FL) - Jan. 25 & 26

Most artists I spoke with had a good show, as did we.  The weather was not co-operative: cold on Saturday and with occasional rain on Sunday.  This did hurt attendance, but those who show-up were there for a reason: to shop!

Once again, Howard Alan & Co. did a magnificent job co-ordinating the event.  Set-up and tear-down could be a nightmare, but thanks to the vigilant staff (made up of fellow artists, with Howard and Debbie ever-present) it went smoothly.  The booths are set in…


Bonita Springs National Art Festival - January 2014

Posted on January 13, 2014 at 9:00am 1 Comment

This was our first show of the new year, and it went well.  A good sign of the recovering economy.

This is a well established show, and always a top-seller.  This year it underwent a major change of location: from an upscale shopping mall on the main thoroughfare to a city park on a side road.  There was a lot of concern that the patrons wouldn't follow, but they showed up in large numbers.  It seemed, to my untrained eye, that there were larger crowds than ever before.



Bonita Springs Review

Posted on March 10, 2013 at 10:11pm 2 Comments

A perfect weekend for shows in Florida, and a welcome change from last weekend.  The Bonita Springs National, sponsored by the Center For The Arts, was a pleasure to attend.  It is well promoted and well run.

The attendance is not huge, but they are the right people, and there are plenty of them.  We had fewer sales than on the average weekend, but they were much higher sales overall; making for another successful weekend in Florida.  It was a very well-heeled crowd.  A mailing-list…

Thanks for the Bonita wrap up, Travis. I know many are curious how things are going to go for Barry and gang at this new location. Hope it works for him and all of you. Great to hear from you again.
