What is your website?
http://deirdreschaneman.com
What are the best things about art fairs
Getting to meet face to face with customers and hang out in a community of like-minded craftspeople and artisans.
Best show ever and why
The one I just had at Schafly Art Outside, which focuses on local art. It set the bar very high by being fun and profitable
Worst show ever and why
I'll let you know when it happens!
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
I found you through my online research when I decided to make a go of it to make a living from art. I've been following the group on Facebook for a few months now.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
In addition to melting glass and smashing metal, I also collect antique phonographs and recordings.
