What are the best things about art fairs
Travel, meeting customers, being outside, profit potential (in no particular order).
Best show ever and why
Bellevue, WA - profitability
Sausalito and Sun Valley - fun
Worst show ever and why
Art in the Park , Missoula MT - booth location on asphalt in 100+ degree weather. Customers went right past booths on the street to get to the cooler park area. Barely made booth fee and got tar from the asphalt all over everything.

Hello Sheila,

I understand you've done the BAM show.  I'm vacillating between it and Spokane's MAC show.  What's your take on the Bellevue show(s)?  I'm not too keen on displaying in an underground parking garage even if they provide electricity.  

I checked out your website.  Love your leaves.  How did the Portland Pearl show go for you?  I received an invitation to apply for Pearl 2012.  Do you think the show's having difficulty finding artists?

I hope you can answer this question ASAP :-) ... Are you completely happy with Teamac? Be brutally honest about the positives and negative aspects you have experienced. Have they been consistent with their fees and charges? Have they surprised you at any point with undisclosed charges/fees?

Also, I called their 1-800 and regular number but no one seems to be there (standard voice mail). How do they handle customer suppoirt/ merchant issues, customer support? Are they 24/7/365? Customer support / technical support is an important issue for me as well.

Thank you
