Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
This is another Amdur show and while it used to be the 2nd best, after Port Clinton, it didn't seem nearly as good as in previous years.
When you have been to one Amdur show, you have pretty much been to all Amdur shows so I won't spend a lot of time on the show. It did have fairly solid artists, was laid out in a manner that made it easy to get around and see all the booths. There is plenty of close by parking and in addition to the usual food booths, the area itself has many restaurants at a lot of price points. The streets are wide and there is no cramped feeling as you walk around.
Sadly, the watch guys were there. They have the crummiest booth possible. they have a gorgeous commercial booth that they probably use at the big commercial shows but they barely have more than a card table and a couple of displays. the most impressive thing at their booth is the box the watch comes in. It has an international guarantee card, another card that I can't remember what it is for.
The best thing about the show was where the stone birds and the candle people were located. They were sandwiched in between two commercial vendors. I loved the irony of it although I was possibly the only one enjoying it. Why they are in a show for artists that make individual pieces when they are both more of a production shop than anything else, I don't understand and guess it is one of those things I am not meant to.
