Good Things about this Art Fair:
Held in a Mega-Commercial center, so plenty of restaurants, parking and so forth, though the artist's parking was about a half mile away.

Weather is beautiful here at this time of the year, so if you are after a suntan, come on down!

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
This is likely one of those shows that shouldn't even happen. There are so many shows down here in the winter that the uneducated and largely uncultured populace of SW Florida is totally overfed.

The crowd was basically mall shoppers taking an extra stroll in the beautiful weather.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
I'll not do this one again. 90% of the artists I spoke to didn't even make their overhead. I'm beginning to see why many artists are complaining about the Promoter's shows.

Seems like they are the only ones making a decent income off the effort. My booth neighbors were kind of Hopping Mad and disgusted! Course, none of us were selling.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
I actually did this show in 2019 but the form doesn't allow that entry.
