So I got the application for Uptown in Mineapolis a few days ago.
For those of you that don’t know it’s a pretty highly rated show
in the U.S. for Fine arts/Fine Crafts.
A couple of interesting things…
They require a Minnesota State tax ID # before you apply. I
called the State and they kind flipped out at the idea that I
hadn’t been accepted yet but needed the #. I got the number by
promising that I was applying to 3 different shows and one might
let me in. They said they couldn’t issue them more than 6 months
ahead…but you need to apply to the show more than six months
ahead…a mess, they then pointed out that I will now have to
file with them whether I get in the show or not…anyone know
more than me? Was this friendly seeming woman on the ball?
They want a passport style photo when you apply for I.D. tags,
They have a category called Normally Out of the Ordinary and I
can’t quite figure out what qualifies for this from the
I thought maybe fellow Orchidites who have done the show before
might be able to comment.
