I know that this has been discussed in the past, but just like the
cell phone deals I am sure this is an ever changing thing. I am
looking to start doing the art show and I need some guidance in
regards to who to use for credit cards. I see ads in the Crafts
Report but I have no idea what is a good deal or a bad deal. Any
guidance would be greatly appreciated.
My other major issue will be my tent. I will be borrowing one for a
while from a friend. I had thought about and EZ Up but I think those
are sort of looked down on. I did not see many of them at the art
show at Mount Dora. I did not see brand names on allot of the other
tents so I don’t know what they were.
My last issue is lighting. I am building my own jewelry case, great
thing my last employer taught me, and I am using tempered glass. My
cases will be 47 inches tall so people do not have to bend over. I
really hate doing that my self so I am not going to make my
customers do it. I am not sure if case lighting will work too good
from the front. I do not want to obstruct customers view. Any
thoughts on this?
If you do the art shows, any photos of your show booth would be
greatly appreciated for what I might learn. I have agonized over the
booth layout. I am sure I will learn allot the first year of doing
I would love to hear from any one that does the art show circuit for
advise. Like good shows, bad shows and other pit falls.
