Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
Arlington Hts. IL. Frontier Days, 4th of July fest.
I painted and glittered firework t-shirts and baseball hats.
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
Sitting in the sun on a summer day. The smell of the different foods cooking. People having a good time. Seeing the cool art/crafts others make. Going home with less items than I brought.
Best show ever and why
Rockford IL. Greenwich Village Art Fair in Sept 2012. It was almost non stop selling for two days! Perfect weather.
Worst show ever and why
Some church basement. I sold nothing. That was the only time that ever happened. The little old ladies were nice and I remember they had great sloppy joe's.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Might have been Zapp? I may have just come across it on my own.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I used to make neon signs. :)
