|Their tent went right in front of this statue, our was supposed to be beside them.|
I went talked with the organizers about what to do and (after moving our tent around the space trying to get it to work) they offered to move us to another location that was better than the one we had. (Really how could anywhere else around there have been worse). They apologized so many times and said that they didn't realize that it was so sloped and uneven, and pointed out that they are not even going to put anybody in that spot in the future!
So we looked at the other spaces and decided to move to the corner of 6th and Walnut...on a street! With the help of a small army of volunteers our tent was taken down and the corner weights were carried over to the new spot (we started off in the Southwest most corner of the festival and moved to the Northeast most corner. So it was quite a walk!) and then put back up again. We had people there to help us unload and with that help we were able to be set up and ready with a few minutes to spare before the people started coming to buy!
We had a very good show, and are very impressed with the help and support at our first year at Art Fair on the Square in Bloomington and hope to make it an annual show! So again Thank you! to the organizers and all the volunteers for helping make the show a great one!
