Best show ever and why
Would you believe Crosby festival in Toledo OH? The Blade [newspaper] ran a story about us. 3 important collectors each purchased + 4,000.00 pieces from us. [we sold a $7,000.00 + piece to one of them] Lots of other sales to patrons who come every year also.
Worst show ever and why
The Grosse point yacht club art festival , spaces not marked, no ads,totally clueless director. Add high winds and a case of food poisoning. As bad as the show in Michigan that turned out to be a gun show early in our career!
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
I know both Connie [& Lisa] from Arts, Beats, Eats. and the shows. should have signed up a while ago!
What is one fun fact about yourself?
Berry [Davis] and I are a couple. We make glass together [he and his late brother Scott taught me] We also live together, eat together, hang out together.Have come close, but have no killed each other yet!
