Well it is over for Lu and Wallace Fuller in the Art Fair world.
We traded in our 2005 art fair van with 365,000 miles for a small SUV.

Let's get right to the point:
It's tough out there, yet we don't quit. What good would that do? Every Spring we host a Pledge Drive to keep our art fair websites…
I don't have an answer for this so I thought I'd start the discussion/thread.
