What a joke - this show is not worth attending and DEFINITELY not worth vending at.
For the kids/parents - over-priced parking - entry fee - food - rides (no they're not free) - over all, very disappointing.
For the vendors - don't even think about it - they operate by hard selling and lying to a new bunch of vendors each year (yes that's you Joni). They claim an 85% return rate of vendors each year - bullshit! - Joni claimed (and I still have it in writing) that she had spoken to 72 vendors that had all made more than $7000 at the show (this was two days later) - funny I watched vendors packing up at 3pm on the first day.
When I asked Joni if she had been at the the show, she informed me "no, because she was having chemo".
If you sign up for the show (and not payed anything) and try to back out, they inform you that "you have to do the show or they will call their lawyers in".
Two words - "rip off"
