You were selling the air pumps with your son? I bought a couple of them from you because you took the time to talk about them even though it was a mad house that day. I think you discounted one too. Thanks, you treated me well.
i had a table out in the hallway because i reserved 3 tables and got one. so they felt nice and sold me one in the hall. full price. not a bad deal since there were over 1000 people in the room and people would go out into the hall to cool off. worked for me
Swaps are never bad...always good!!
I Did not know there was really a guy selling labs in the lot, That is comedy!
There were tables that were not used.
Wrong Ray. There were not table(s) unused. There was one table that was unused. It belonged to a "no show".
Ric perez had 6 tables under his and his wife's name. One of those easily could have been given up if we really needed them. Ric reserves for his out of state buddies and pays for all the tables.
Wrong AGAIN Ray… Yes Ric had 6 tables reserved under his and his wife’s name. However he, Pete and his wife used four. The other two were actually used by the gal that used to own King Coral. And Ric did not pay for all of them. They were paid for by the people using them.
At the last swap we had people in the hallway with tables,
That was a one time thing. It was done to correct an error. Tables will not be set up in the hallway again for this exact reason. Do it once and people think it should always be that way. As a matter of fact I had a vendor who had been to every swap for the last four years on the waitlist who desperately wanted a table. Myself, Sam Miller and Rick all decided against it. Bad precedent to set.......proven by your very words Ray. The good news is that a cancellation came up and that vendor was called immediately and he took the table.
maybe we should look at limiting the number of tables to 3 instead of 4.
Ray, have you ever heard the saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."? No need to change something that has worked and worked well for a long time because one guy decided to sell out of the lot.
i dont think anyone needs to take them as criticism.
