This is a hassle free show, with plenty of patrons, free parking for artists and most importantly sales. Howard and Debbie have a strong presence at the show. They stop and talk to everyone numerous times. Debbie found it necessary to help fix up my booth with foliage, which I appreciated and enjoyed. When I think about how annoyed I was the past few years with the shows I did on this weekend, with how good I felt after this one, I had a good laugh. There were no negatives in Sarasota only positives. I liked it so well, I am going to do HA's Coconut Pointe show next weekend in Bonita Springs.
First off, what a GREAT show St Armands was over the weekend. It is the second best show I’ve ever done in Florida over the past 30 years. Only Coconut Grove back in ’89 was better and that was 27 years ago. The new work that I have now is just flying off the shelves as well. I came down last week fully stocked on the new work, knowing it would be a success, and I am nearly sold out of it all together. All I can is WOW!!! Count me in for St Armands every year in the future. Well done to you and Howard. You get the people to the shows you produce and then it’s up to the exhibitors to make the sales. A great combination.
Thanks so much to Howard Alan Events, their terrific team and the fabulous crowds we had all weekend for another successful event ♡ Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!
Thank YOU Howard, Debbie and their "Dream Team" staff for another fabulous easy show. Sarasota loved us!! We are so grateful for this life and our artist family!
The sun has set on another successful Howard Alan Art Festival. It was the best ever, well run, organized and, yes, fun! Thank you.
Howard and Debbie, I wanted to thank you for getting me into Coconut Point from the waitlist. It was an absolutely incredible show for me. One of the best shows I have ever done in 20 years in the state of Florida. If you guys were there I would have given you both a hug!!
