Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Swinging down through the Chicago Loop with the great Cher and Christina belting out about burlesque("show a little more, show a little less, let them know what's in store, welcome to burlesque!), we started out our journey to Gold Coast in high spirits.
When we reached the lake we could open the windows and feel the great breeze off Lake Michigan.
And that's what my tent has: a great view of the magnificent fountain in Grant Park and a cool breeze. Our booth is backed by huge trees that offer total relief from the noon sun. Amy handed out water jugs to everyone and there are tons of ice and water available at all times for us.
We were the first group to set up(we pulled in right by our booth. I owe that all to a fellow AFIer named Robert Campbell. He stalled unloading and saved a loading space until my husband arrived. Thanks, great guy!)
We left at 4 pm as the next group was arriving. I must say it was an impressive sight to see all those white tents....and that was just half the number.
I feel like Christmas Eve. I just can't wait to wake up tomorrow.
