Has anyone here participated in the Great Lakes Art Fair, especially photographers? Curious as to traffic and whether it is an art fair crowd or more of a vendor booth crowd. Thanks.

We were vendors for it last year. It was a very good show. And we had expenses of travel and lodging (we live in Cleveland ohio).

I do fiber, and my husband makes handcrafted cold process soap... Sales were phenomenal

If  you go to their website, you can find a list of artists by categories for the last several years. There are only 3 or 4 photographers who consistently return to the show across a three year span, although that can be interpreted several ways; either most photographers don't do well except for a few or the show wants a high turnover to keep the show fresh.
