I did not make my booth fee.
Very slow show. Crowds weren't there and the weather didn't help. The woman next to me sold ice dyed scarfs, shirts, etc and did well. My friend who sells jewelry made $170 over booth fee. Others I talked to said sales were slow.
Second year I did this show. Last year it was 100 degrees and I made my booth fee, however the booth fee was only $115 because they cut it in half.
