Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
A BIG thank you to Harry & Dena Abell, and all of the volunteers of the Friends of Cloudland Canyon State Park, for hosting a wonderful event! In spite of the cold weather (we even had snow flurries early Saturday morning!) we had a profitable show. Harry, Dena and the volunteers were friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to make sure that everyone was as comfortable and happy as possible - including providing a delicious, home-made breakfast and indoor bathrooms to the vendors. The attendance for the two days was surprisingly good, considering the weather, the $5 entrance fee to the State Park, and the $5 fee to park at the Celebration. The Fall foliage was beautiful up on the mountain - something we don't get to see much of in Florida!
Another perk was that our booth was next to the renowned artist Larry Dodson's, whom we got to spend some time with. His validation of the artwork we sell and his advice and encouragement were very much appreciated.
All-in-all, we had a wonderful time and will be back next year!
