Holiday Fair in Greenville, SC

Well, I am a little late in writing this post, but it took me a little bit to get out of that long 2 week holiday. My sister and I did the Holiday Fair show in Greenville, SC , December 3, 4 and 5th.
This show has been held for over 30 years, so one would think that it is a good show. Well don't think anymore. I am learning that it does not matter how many years a show has been held, what matters is that it is ADVERTISED well. This show should be changed to a big Flea Market.
We applied to be in the handmade section and just on our aisle there were many "made in china" items, not to mention the other half of the convention center full of stuff like "WOW SHAMMYS", steering wheel covers, jewelry from the mart, junk and crap.
Needless to say, this was the 2nd worst show we have ever done. With the booth fee of $300.00 and the electrical of $65.00 and then the sales tax license fee of $20.00, and out travel expenses. We would have done better staying in Atlanta and doing the Sugarloaf festival.
Live and Learn ! This year 2009 WILL be a better year.
