Good Things about this Art Fair:
The load-in for the show setup was time-slotted, booth sitters available by text or call, plenty of food choices, affordable hotels nearby, good variety of art.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
Many repeat vendors said that attendance for this show and sales was probably half what it was last year. Turns out there were two different events going in the same area. I sold less than half what I expected.

The wind was howling the first day. They don't call it Gulf Breeze for nothing!

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Call ahead and get a camping or hotel spot well in advance. This show fell during Spring Break so hotels were at a premium. We camped about 30 minutes away.
