Artists TestimonialsARTIST TESTIMONIAL - HALINA SHEARMAN DESIGNS
"Being part of the Artfest Shop has been a great way to stay connected to my customers and get some new ones. While it is not the same as being at a live show, it has been worthwhile for sure. It was easy to do as well, because Artfest does all the uploading and technical stuff- which is not my forte! Two things have worked well to keep me competitive and make sales: I guarantee that I ship within 3 days, and I offer free shipping. Having no show expenses has helped buffer shipping costs. And customers love it! Thank you Artfest for giving me a new avenue to sell my work."

ARTIST TESTIMONIAL- OUT OF RUINS
"I was expecting 2020 to be an highly successful show circuit year. I had great new products and I was ready to travel and showcase my work. Then COVID!! How does my business move forward? And along comes the Artfest Virtual Show and their online shop. You may never understand the absolute excitement of receiving my first online order. While dancing naked in the street flashed across my mind, the mature responsible adult just giggled with joy. Thank you Artfest for helping to keep Out of Ruins alive during this changing time."

ARTISTS TESTIMONIAL - FIRE & FLAME
I cannot say enough good things about Lory MacDonald and the Artfest experience. As someone relatively new to the art show world, they have been absolutely terrific in providing a wonderful venue for my work as well as support and encouragement. In these challenging times, their creation of the Artfest shop was done in a timely and professional manner. Their promotion of my products has been phenomenal. Any questions that I have had have been answered promptly and thoroughly.
