Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Weather was great for this fair. Fairly steady crowd but not a huge number of lookers/buyers. For me, a woodturner, the show was disappointing considering the distance traveled and the $300 set up fee. I did about $260-280 in sales each day. The one highlight was that I won a 2nd place ribbon and $150. This was a first for me.
I attended three Chicago area shows this season...an experiment. Given the set up fees and amount of sales among the shows, I will not likely risk going to this area again.
