Good Things about this Art Fair: Set-up was easy and timed, each person was given a time to come in and it worked. Layout was good. If on sidewalk could had space behind booth, parking was plentiful.

Bad Things about this Art Fair: One street the aisle between sidewalk and booth in street was real tight. Was told they had portopotties but never found them. Show was filled with Jewelry. Every other booth was some kind of jewelry. Said artist should be at booth but had reps. Teardown rather confusing. A lot of artist walked their booths out on dollies Someone brought a motorhome into teardown and blocked the street. Was told they did a lot of advertising but they depend on people coming to plaza. Saw nothing in newspapers. Crowds were way down.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:If you have nothing better go to this show. If you do jewelry this is yours show.

Additional Commentary on this Show: They did have booth sitters, setup was rather easy, promoter very easy to work with. Weather was perfect. if you do get on the sidewalk not the street
