Exhibit at BotCon?on April 21, 2011 at 10:31 pm
I’ll definitely BE at BotCon. There’s no question about that. But other than one year a decade ago, I’ve never had a dealer table there. That one year I went home making more money than I’d spent, but it was a very miserable, cold experience, because I didn’t get to see anybody or sit in on many panels ‘cuz of the whole have-to-be-at-the-table thing.
But now that BotCon has this artist alley thing they’re trying to cultivate, I’m tempted to try it out again. Mind, I would absolutely not be at that table all day, every day, like I am at every other convention. I’d have to close up shop, throw a bedsheet over everything, and buzz my way into panels I’d want to see. I’m comfortable with this. I’m selling paper goods, not MISB Overloads. But would you guys who are going to BotCon and also interested in patronizing my wares, would me not actually being there 50% of the time be worth it to you?
Basically, what I’m asking is if whether I can at least sell, say, 12 books to cover the table and shipping costs. Or 19 Dinobot posters.
