Thanx again for all the help and response

Hi Lindsay,
I have been doing the Randolph Street Market for few years now and this year's shows have been the best. The trafic was heavy and the shoppers were spending money. Needless to say it was a very good show.
The promoter is very professional and knows how to market a show, the rest is up to each dealer to do their part to promote their business in order to make good sales and hence have a good show. But then again if you talk to other dealers they will tell you ..it Sucked..and they will proceed to blame the promoter. Those are the dealers that bring the same stuff over and over again everymonth and donot treat this as a business nor a hobby, they think just put the stuff on the tables and it will sell itself, those days are gone !!
My merchandise ranged in price from $5.00 to $400, the one thing that made my show a success , I was willing to negotiate and make deals and that is always a plus in any show. I
Try it once and see how you like it, I like to set up in the parking a lot better, it just seems to draw the attention of more buyers. The inside is good too but a bit higher in cost.
If you need more details, let me know
Best of luck.
Sumaya
