Arts & Craft Show Sample Review

THE CRAFTS FAIR GUIDE is published quarterly, evaluating last year's fairs so you'll have a basis for choosing this year's. Each fair has been rated by one or more exhibitors, using the CFG Evaluation Form.

For every show reviewed you’ll find basic information (location, dates, site description, size and type of crowd, booth size, fee, etc.). You’ll also be given individual sales figures, average sales and rating of the show on a 0-10 scale.

Especially useful are the comments by the exhibitors about the fair and the promoter. Of course we include the promoter’s name, address, phone number, and other information so you’ll be able to contact them about this year’s show.

THE SALES GRAPH shows how many people rated the fair, their crafts, and their ratings on a scale of 0 (bad) to 10 (great).  The number under the letter is the amount made in hundreds of dollars.

Here is an example:

One potter rated it a 9 (great) and made $4000. A jeweler gave it an '8' and made $3500. A woodworker gave it a 7 and made $2400. This was a pretty  good show for these three reviewers.

Following the Sales Graph will be crafts peoples' comments about the fair and promoter. The comments are condensed from all reviews received for easy reading and are broken into comments about the fair and comments about the promoter.  Select quotes from some of the submitted forms are also included to represent the opinion of all exhibitors who submitted reviews.
