One of the venues I do, the Oaks at the Greater Philly Expo Center, in Oaks PA, just did a Holistic Art Show, and I was wondering if anyone did it and what their experience was. I have a friend that had a booth there, and she was not happy with sales or booth/electricity  prices. Are there any other venues that do these shows?See More

What are the best things about art fairs
Meeting other artists and nice customers.
Best show ever and why
Paxson Hill Farm Art in the Garden, in New Hope PA. Beautiful garden setting, really nice layed back people who run it, and only $50 for 10x10 space.
Worst show ever and why
Gloucester City Art & Music Festival, Gloucester City NJ. Very low income area, very scary once the sun goes down the homeless drunks come into the park. Not much police protection.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
Another artist/vendor I met at the last Paxson Hill Farm festival.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
oh come ON! Really? Ok, my middle name is Lou and I've been hiding it most of my life because I got teased about it as a child. Now it is front and center on my artwork, BLou Stark. That's the best I can do....
