Asheville - Amy Perrier

Thanks for another great event at Pack Square in Asheville, NC! It was a verywell attended event and my sales were strong!Thanks also to Elaine, Helayne, and Pia. They make it a pleasure to do the shows. They're present if there's anything that needs attention and so nice to work with; what a great group! We tried something new and hired the Tent Guys. From the first phone call, to the end of the show "The Guys" were professional and friendly.  We'll definitely consider this again for other shows. We're really glad you have this service available. It'll come in very handy as we're  considering some Florida shows and this could make a difference for us! The light dome tent we rented was as nice as our own.

Ernie and I participated in the Downtown Asheville Arts and Crafts Festival, for a first year show we weren't expecting much. Boy were we surprised, customers showed in droves sales ended up being better than expected. And for such a confined space the staff did an excellent job getting us in and unloaded very quickly. Pack down also went smoothly. So thank you for having this event in your list of shows we will apply again next year.

Another quick note... Asheville was wonderful! 2nd Howard Alan Show in a row and I am so pleased. So well organized... great crowds.Impressive 1st year show. Helaine and  Elaine are great! Tent Guys were so kind to bring water throughout the (hot) days. Looking froward to this show again next year. Thanks again!

This morning, Tuesday, we purchased a newspaper at CVS with an art festival sticker! Thank you so much for alerting potential customers early for the Asheville show. 




Lake Norman - Dorata Roberts

Good Morning! I have just arrived back home from Lake Norman. This was my very first Howard Allen Show and I must say I was very impressed and delighted with the whole weekend. The show was so well organized, everyone was so friendly. The advertising was awesome and so were the crowds! I am so excited to hopefully participate in more of your shows in the future. Thanks to all for a wonderful weekend.


Lake Norman - Amy Perrier

I just wanted to drop a quick note to say, Thanks! I've done my second HAE this past weekend. Thanks to Elaine, Helayne, and Pia, I feel like the events were very well run! I appreciated the professionalism and friendliness as well as the event itself being very well attended! Kudos to marketing too! Also especially appreciate the ladies keeping on top of the parking situation, making sure artists move their vehicles out of patron parking spots before the event begins. I've been to many shows where this is not enforced. I was also delighted at the generous booth sizes. Thanks again!


Hathaway Brown - JD Davison & JD Shipengrover

We wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we appreciate the work of Helayne Stillings and Elaine Laurent during last weekend's Hathaway Brown Fine Art Festival. At each and every show they coordinate, we have seen careful attention to detail and an unceasingly cheerful attitude. We know Hathaway Brown was a difficult show for many artists this year, and it certainly wasn't especially profitable for us, however Helayne and Elaine were fantastic and hard-working throughout. We just thought you should know that, in case you didn't already.


The Villages - Gail Jordan

First thing Saturday morning, a customer arrived with a copy of the article from the Daily Sun (a Village newspaper) (attached). She wanted to buy one of my candle holders. Throughout the day, I heard comments from customers about the write up in the paper. They told me this is how they were aware of the show. Thank you ACE for giving me a boost Saturday at the show. I had a good weekend.

Sarasota Craft - Richard Gayle

I just received a 'call back' order from the Sarasota show this past Feb. and wanted to thank you again for a great, well organized show!  Looking forward to applying again for 2018! Just curious when the results of Alexandria will be published?  Fingers crossed for the opportunity to be part of this one as well! Many thanks again!


Melbourne - Rita Seidel

We just wanted to say thank you, and to let you know that we had a very good show this weekend, thanks to existing collectors and new ones. We are grateful for a good weekend.
