Thank you and everyone else at Amdur for the Barrington show last weekend. I was so excited by the response to my jewelry, actually had my highest grossing show ever! Everyone at Amdur was so nice and helpful.Terry Cunningham
Lill and I want to thank you, Amy, and all of the Amdur staff for running what we consider to be the gold standard for organization.... Our work was well received in Chicagoland and we credit Amdur for making our success possible. Thanks again.Stewart Rein, Stewart Rein Photography

My name is Edie Kasten and I attended Saturday's "Boot Camp" and just loved it.Edie Kasten
(I have the hand knitting business) I learned SO much and you really helped me figure out a path for what I want to do!
The event was fun and filled with so much interesting information.
I will apply for some shows... I hope what I do will fit.
But no matter, I learned things that will be valuable for life in general!
I want to thank you and your staff for conducting two very well run shows at Evanston and Port Clinton last month which I participated in and did very well. I appreciated the friendliness of your staff….and their smiles.Clayton Bell, 3D Stone Artist
The Deer Park Art Show is a sweet little gem for the Amdur season...with an intimate number of artists & a nice flow of art patrons..the clientele attending the show are genuinely supporting the artists & interacting amidst the festivities...with an incredibly easy load-in & load out, this show makes for a lovely weekend.Heather Hambrecht, Leather Artist
It's (Deer Park Town Center) a great location centered around a gazebo Garden, and has all the organization of other Amdur shows but is smaller and has a more laid-back feel. Super easy unloading and packing up and excellent and helpful staff as always. Located in the Mall Complex customers already know where to go and go there often even if they didn't know about the show. Thanks for everything again Caitlin.Sam Siegel, 3D Metal Artist
The Deer Park art show is a perfect and peaceful collection of artists and shoppers. The space is beautiful and broad, not cramped and crazy. And the shoppers come out to find stuff! They all seem to be looking for something to surprise them, something they haven’t seen before. And they find it! I really love the customer there. They seem genuinely excited to be there and see all the fabulous art....not just on their way somewhere else. So, the combination of the space itself and the customers really looking for treasures is so fun. And of course Amy and her crew make it such a pleasure from your load in to load out and every minute in between! Oh! And this was my very first Amdur show!! It’s still my favorite one! The vibe is just so calm and stress free and before you know it you’ve sold half your inventory! love it!Camille Carr, Jeweler
Thank you so much for letting me participate in the youth section in your art fairs last summer. I have grow a lot since then. Now I sell my jewelry at Amita health’s two gift shops and am working on a website. I am who I am now because you gave me the amazing opportunity of being in an art fair. Thank you so much. I hope to be able to participate again next summer.Ananya Ramji, Youth Artist
Thanks again. Amy and you (Caitlin) are the best, and Amdur shows are consistently my best shows.Tom Henrichsen
