Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever

What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
Meeting new people and seeing prior patrons again.
Best show ever and why
Gainesville's Downtown Festival & Art Show -- In my hometown and it happens to be one of the top shows in the country. Always great sales, great weather, great people; And, not to sound biased, I'll be the poster artist for this year, 2010.
Worst show ever and why
None yet ... There have been a few shows that have not done as well as usual, but it has been more due to the economy than the promoters. So, I feel no reason to say anything disparaging about a specific show.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Sunshine Artist Mag.

Assuming one is accepted to both shows, which show would you chose?  Please post any opinions, reviews, links or personal experiences about each show.  I would love to learn more about the shows.

Also, if anyone has any other recommendations for another show on the same weekend or in November/December, then please add your suggestions.

Thank you.

Hugo, One last thing, how heavy are you metal pieces that cause the mesh walls to sag? I'm just about to order the mesh walls. If I had a van I could stick with my current set-up but the mesh walls are cheaper than another car! Thanks, Paul.

Hi Hugo,

I've been totally happy with Teamac. I haven't run into any problems at all with my service, so I haven't had to test the customer service much, but when I called they have always been there and very helpful. No hidden charges at all, and they have actually absorbed recent price increases from their service providers. They are very nice people. Try calling them again and tell them all of your concerns. They will take the time to talk to you, and are not pushy.

I hope that helps,
