“It never hurts to ask. The worst you can say is no.” In a very non-passive aggressive move (VERY non-Minnesotan) I decided to reach out to an art fair that I hadn’t even applied to, a week a half before the actual fair. Why? Because the day before, it was officially announced that my beloved Uptown Art Fair was cancelled.
Much to my surprise, they said YES! They had a Community Booth that hadn’t sold, and they said I could buy it. Mind. Blown.
Oh course, my next issue was making inventory (Wayzata and Stone Arch wiped me out). Luckily, I had my August mat order already in (mats I would have used for Uptown and for the State Fair). My mats arrived with just enough time to pop together a nice amount of inventory.
Added bonus, the weather is supposed to be gorgeous for the full three day weekend.
