Bonita Springs Art Show—First one of 2019

Well, this is my 45th year in the biz.

2018 ended in a sad fizzle so I was looking for positive vibes to kickstart 2019.

I have done this show many times since its inception.

It moved a few years back from a location off Highway 41, a well travelled road,

to Old Highway 41 located in…

Artigras, Jupiter,Fl—-Requiem for an Art Show, long past it’s glory

But, it is time to say aloha.  It no longer works for me, and also does not work for many others.

Flourish Canopy Tent 10' x 10' white and Pro Panels with shelving (beige)

We have closed our art show business and would like to sell our tent.  The tent was used for only a few shows.  It is clean.  It has been kept in hard plastic containers in a temperature controlled environment.  So it is in good condition.  One corner zipper is broken part way down.  However, the tent does close and the bottom of that corner can be secured easily.  Tent comes with an awning as well.

Pro Panels are beige.  They have also been kept in house in a temperature…
