What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
Being able to bring my work directly to the public, getting genuine feedback, and of course sales!
Best show ever and why
Kings Mountain Art Fair, because people who go there are looking for art and ready to buy.
Worst show ever and why
Manhattan Beach Hometown Faire, because not only are there no sales but the load-out is horrendous. Really, hours waiting in your car just to get to your booth to load up.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
A couple of commenters on Fine Art Views blog posts mentioned it.

Your welcome I just use the autopay with kitty, if you go that route keep in mind that they process the payment 3 days before it's applied to your phone. I love page plus was so sceptical when I first heard of it, seemed to good to be true but it's a great alternative to a contract with verizon. Good luck and have fun shopping for a new phone.

Hi Barbara, sorry it took me so long to get back to you I've been out of town visiting family and doing a show. The phones I've used so far with square are in order, the original droid, htc incredible 2, Droid x and my current the x2. I like the droid x series, the screen is big and easier to see in sunlight. Here's a good place to go to learn more about pageplus it's a very helpful and informative pageplus forum. Also you should check out squares page of devices with known issues From what I've learned so far as long as the phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack and is running at least android 2.1 it should work with square. A friend of mine is using the lg ally with square, another the droid 3. I've read of someone having a problem getting it to work with the eris so I'd stay away from that phone. And basically any verizon phone as long as it's not 4g or a prepaid phone that was purchased at walmart will work with pageplus. If you have anymore questions just ask. I'm happy to help, btw I just finished a show and my squares funds are already in my bank. You just can't get any better than that.
