Good Things about this Art Fair:
People came there to spend money. Despite the fact that it was primarily craft, patrons were not bothered by higher priced items. I received several online orders after the show.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
Load out was every man for himself. Not enough food vendors so pack a cooler if you don't want to stand in line for an hour.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
If you are a crafter and in the area...you should do it! Holiday decor was absolutely flying off the shelves. People who sold furniture also sold tons! I passed several booths at the end of the show that were almost completely empty of merchandise.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
This is a one day show so I'm guessing it wouldn't be worth it to travel a far distance. It is predominately craft, some fine crafters, and jewelers. I really don't think fine art would do well here.

People have been telling me to do this show the past couple of years & I honestly thought it would be too crafty for me. That was certainly not the case.

Patrons were literally out there in the dark with flashlights & wagons already shopping while we were setting up. If you are close you can't beat it for $120.
