Good Things about this Art Fair: They really take care of the vendors. It is at an elementary school, and they set up a vendor room in the teacher lounge. They have snacks drinks, and a restroom. If it is chilly it is good place to catch some warmth. They have inside and outside booths. The promoters checked in with me at least twice each day.

Bad Things about this Art Fair: With it being in a neighborhood the parking can get a little rough, but they try to make it as accessible as possible. In Austin people are ruled by the weather so if it is rainy or muggy they just might not show. However they do have a very loyal following.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show: I sold a lot of things that people stated they would be giving as teacher presents. So smaller price points may be better, but I did also have people who bought multiple pieces at once.
