Art fairs are hard work, and I admire the artists who make most of their income at them. These shows involve hauling all of your artwork/tent/display to the location, setting up, spending 7-9 hours selling, then deinstalling, packing it all up and traveling back home. It's not only physically straining, but mentally as well. Currently, I can only manage about two a year, and those are all local.
I feel lucky to participate in the one at Isle of Hope. I attended this art fair about two years before I actually became a vendor, and somehow the coordinators of this show manage to always pick the most lovely day in October host it. When the weather is nice, and your friends have booths right beside yours, it makes for a good day.
I started selling pots last year, and this year was even better. Big thanks to all those who came to give love to my pots–especially those who took some home with them! Here are some glamour shots of my booth taken by the talented Melissa Meyers.
