Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

February 27, 2010 Kalamazoo County Fairground & Expo Center Kalamazoo, Michigan 9:30 - 4:00 Approximately 110 booths Deadline: November 1, 2009 (received by) You've heard how fun it is. This is your chance to find out for yourself! This is the show to sell your seconds, overstock, duds or things you're just tired of looking at in your booth, even your art supplies or art you've traded for!
It's only 5 ½ hours long with morning set-up. So make it easy on yourself, rent some tables and forget the normal time consuming display. It's run by Bonnie Blandford (jewelry) and Michael Kifer (clay) who both make their living doing art fairs so hopefully they know how to make it more fun! Besides, who doesn't need money in February? The scoop: * No application or jury feel
* Booth fees are the same as last year, starting at $90 for a 10x10 * Very few rules (no buy/sell) * Share a booth if you'd like * Mark things down and move them out! Applications, more information and pictures are at: P.S. Okay, I attend this show every year -- fabulous shopping and fun for everyone! -------------------------------------------- Find more art fairs for your 2010 season:

As crazy as this may sound - I like the idea of a garage sale art show. I hope it works out well!

I absolutely love this idea. When I moved from Chicago to NYC, I had a small garage sale of my own, where I served pizza & wine and invited a small group of friends who I knew liked my work (I'm a painter). I marked everything way down, and it all went, making it much easier for me to move into my small Manhattan apartment.
