What is your website?

What are the best things about art fairs
Art. Selling my work. Meeting new artists. Inspiration for new pieces.
Best show ever and why
Yellow Springs Street Fair has always been good, easy access, well-managed, supportive crowd. One day.
Worst show ever and why
Backwoods Fest
Poor sales, unfriendly management, expensive, a real sense of the show owner just wanting to make as much as can be made off the back of the artist/crafter. Yuck.
