Mr. Iverson, you are very experienced with the great craft shows, and the market in general. I am a local Santa Fe artist, who has always shown in galleries, but am now eyeing the Flea as a place to start exhibiting..and get experience and income. I am also told that many out of town retailers will look for new work there.
When I consider the daunting task of doing big shows this year, the flea looks like a practical place to start, with the big shows to plan for in a year or two, when I have the money and time and inventory worked out.
I believe my work is very salable.
Could I be over estimating the "flea" as an opportunity?
