Saying Goodbye

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.

Lu and I did our first Art Fair after being married for just one month, It was the Plaza in Kansas City in September of 1967. She sold a number of rose paintings (2"x3") and she made $25. Her last show was Waveland in Lexington, Ky. in September of 2018, That was 51 years in the Art Fair world.

The end of the trail was when I had a back…

Social Distancing and Face Mask Wearing Signage.

I don't have an answer for this so I thought I'd start the discussion/thread.

I've seen lots of signage meant for "normal" stores; tape on the floor, printed round thingies that promote social distancing, etc. However, I've yet to find something ready made, though my search is by no means extensive, that might be appropriate for an art fair booth short of making my own. I've even "googled" images thinking I'd make my own poster to put up.

Anyone hit on something that they would…
