It has been a week since I participated in the Kalamazoo Art Fair and each time the show gets a little better. A few more sales, quicker set up, easier tear down. Generously helpful Artists on each side of us. From the last show I noted to myself to bring a step stool, which came in very handy. This show made me decide to purchase a fold up rolling cart to make things easier. Sometimes the parking spot is not so close to your booth space. It takes a lot to tote around a 40 pound weight. This sculpture was in the courtyard of the Kalamazoo Institutes of Art.

While making a trec to the KIA I was stopped by a parade. I thought these large headed people were amusing.

The little pooch was sitting so patiently observing his surroundings. All in all, we had a good show. It takes a while to build a following and it is fun to talk with people and make contacts. I would do it again. As always….thanks for stopping.
