What are the best things about art fairs
The work, the fun, the chaos, the people!
Best show ever and why
While still a student, I participated in the Nelsonville Music Festival. It was great fun hanging out with friends and selling fellow student art at the show.
Worst show ever and why
My sister, a nurse, dragged me to an art show at the Hospital in Cambridge, OH. I had a great table and location, but brought all the wrong stuff. My sister had told me to keep it cheep and easy with lots of similar items. She couldn't have been more wrong. The Cambridge customer expected fine silver findings and a variety of different things to look through.
