If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It!
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
That year was a tremendous success for Left Behind photography! I TRIPLED my sales from 2014 plus got my name and photos out to thousands of more faces. I was super-excited to be returning to the 2016 show.
You are a fantastic artist and it upsets me to hear that your overall sales were low. I have bought several of your pieces over the years and your work inspires me daily. That being said, I feel like I need to address a few key things since I was closely involved in Mondo Roots. For starters, Mondo Roots is NOT the Millstock renamed, it is a brand new festival and it is not solely an arts festival. Though the unbelievably high temperatures undoubtedly affected our attendance numbers we still had a far higher number of people attend Mondo Roots than the 2015 Millstock (according to former Millstock committee members). Also, being that this was our first year, we fully expected to have a few hiccups here and there, most of which have already been addressed for next year's festival.
As a huge fan of yours, I do hope you give Mondo Roots a second chance as we are going to work hard on continually bringing in a more diverse and arts minded crowd. We would love to hear more about your experience along with any suggestions you might have. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email me directly.
Thanks for your support,

On here in thus area. Well hope you get a
Good next show or event.
THANK YOU SO MUCH LAURA!
I appreciate that more than you know. Yes, it is a shame. Instead of building on the success of the previous year, they blew it up and started again.
No I am not discouraged. I know I can do better at other shows, including one in just to weeks in Ohio. I does, however, limit the amount I can invest in that show. I can't add as much inventory nor make some improvements to my display/booth that I was hoping to.
That's really sad they took from the visual artists. They are the real ones that make history. I'd say it was a combo of all elements but it only goes from your post because I was not there. I know you are an awesome artist so that can not be it. I love your work and hope this does not discourage you from continuing doing what you love.
