Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Our art business is growing, and i have received several invitations for shows that are far from Northern Ohio, and my home. Considering they are outdoor shows, it would mean i have to pack the tent, and supplies along with the art, and get it to the venue. Short of renting a small truck (our suv is aging, and i would not trust it on a cross country adventure) and driving there, I wonder what the best way would be to get the goods there, and myself there. I wonder how do you handle this? And do you have suggestions for the logistics of having everything arrive as you do? I have not ventured more than about 300 miles from home so far, so this is a bold leap. I have done some research on the cost of renting a pod, that is shipped via a trucking company, airfare, and the cost of renting a vehicle on the ground at the airport... vs renting a vehicle here and hauling it myself... And the costs are not so far off each other. I would value your feedback.
