I’m grateful for the advice and tips - thank you so much.
So far I’m taking away that it’s better to slightly overstock. I had
never thought of canceling a show, though. A bit of naivet on my
part, and some unwillingness to lose the booth fee, I guess. On the
other hand, it makes good business sense - I would rather cancel than
show up looking unprepared and with a weak selection. I’ve never had
to consider it before this year.
And thanks for the tip about bringing extra cash… sometimes I man
the booth alone and it would be a nightmare to run out early and have
no way to get to a bank.
Thanks again for the insight!
P.S. Grace, I have to admit I’m scared to death and excited to cut
my teeth this year… where’s the novocaine? or whiskey?
