KUDOS
 
"I recaptured my booth fee the very first night, so the second day was pure profit. What a great event." 
– John Lee, The Kilted Blacksmith
 
"Thank you so much for the opportunity to show at the Urban Artist Market, for the booth placement (the I-beams and natural light were a God-send!), and for the wonderful surprise of having the extra room to bring the fused glass and jewelry. I felt like this was kind of divinely inspired, so I am curious to see how things play out in the future. Your hard work was evident and I think the show was a great success overall. Bravo."
 –Cara Brown, Art Glass Spirit

 
"Best market ever! I had a very profitable weekend and a super positive experience with the Urban Artist Market. Chris Miller was a great organizer and the market was well marketed. I will be back next year!"
 –Anne Cameron, Tissé Designs
