I am a little into my second year of doing shows. I have made some
bad choices once or twice just because I was promised that "monied"
people would be at the show in droves.
I would love to see comments about the TYPES of shows you avoid or
are drawn to.
So far I have been able to draw a couple of conclusions:
I won’t do a show again that is purely about “having fun” and is
guaranteed to be chaotic. I am an animal lover and I did a show
where people who attended also brought their dogs. It was a “Rescue
the Animals” type benefit. People were not there with the INTENTION
of buying anything or even looking–it was about the dogs and having
fun with them.
I have read that one should avoid shows that are about
music–music festivals, in other words. So far, I have found that to
be true but surely there must be some music festivals with fine arts
shows that are good selling venues?
Haven’t done a gem and mineral show yet. Anyone know about that?
Anyone done a Home and Garden show?
So far my best shows have been fine arts festivals.
