Atlanta Dogwood Review...
Everything just seemed to fall in place. Stormy weather was predicted for our drive there but during the entire trip it seemed that it poured rain everywhere ahead of us and stopped everywhere just before we drove there. Wet cement and puddles but no rain...! We didn't have to turn on the windshield wipers at all. The closure of I-85 was north of where we were driving and we were able to drive I-85 all the way to our exit at 60mph without traffic...a extreme rarity in Atlanta.
The weather was chilly on Friday & Saturday and perfect on Sunday...The setup was well organized and the police escort allowed it to flow flawlessly. Our sales Friday were almost nothing but a great Saturday and Sunday made it a great show for us...better than we anticipated.
There were large crowds...As with most shows some were the typical out for a walk people with their baby strollers and dogs who had no intention of buying and some were the buyers spending money.
We did have a problem with wi-fi reception each day after about 3pm and had a very difficult time getting a signal. I spoke with quite a few other artists that said they also could not get a signal.This sure made me appreciate the offline feature that Square has. I did a bunch of offline charges and fortunately all of them went through later when we got back to the place we were staying and had a signal again ...
The load-out was frustrating but well organized and took us about two hours from end of show to driving on to the street. www.USAwoodArt.com
