Local
merchants
get set for
art fair
By JANICE PLOTNIK
While artists prepare paintings,
pottery, and drawings for the annual
Ann Arbor Art Fair, local merchants
are also gearing up for an onslaught of
visitors, who are ready for a full day
of browsing along Ann Arbor streets.
Though people come to spend the
day looking.at sculptures and jewelry,
much of the real spending is done in-
doors at local stores along the fair
route.
THE ART FAIR has proved to be
mutually beneficial for consumers
and merchants, said Bob Claerr,
assistant manager at the Bivouac
camping department. Consumers get
the advantage of sales, while mer-
chants boost revenues, Claerr said.
