Alki Arts Fair – July 23rd & 24thposted by Jay on 07/25/2011
I participated in the 14th Annual Alki Arts Fair. Fortunately it was a glorious weekend, after a long spell of endless rain and drizzle. The view from my booth was one of the best in the city, from the Olympic mountain range, Elliot Bay, Mt Baker and the view to downtown Seattle.
I had never set up at an outside venue, and with a borrowed tent, and some basic wood armature, I was able to put together a presentable setting. The two days were long, but I was rewarded with great responses, and enough sales to make it worthwhile for me.
The attendance was good, though most were cruising the scene, and not so interested in art. There was a lot of crafts and music, which rounded out the event. This event could use a swarm of artists to make future events much stronger.
