Well after a long day of set up and working a "market" while running on three hours of sleep, we (myself and @rosiesheretohelp ) have packed up and WILL NOT BE PARTICIPATING in the second day of #leducfestivaloftrees or returning ever again.
After only hearing great things about this event and them boasting their attendance record to draw in vendors we thought this would be perfect. If you know us you know we LOVE markets and meeting people; social butterflies. Unfortunately our dreams were dashed. All the time, effort, money, and prep put into getting ready for this show only to have been deceived.
Throughout the event we had several vendors come to ask asking about sales. Why? Because it was completely dead. MAYBE 600 people showed up, half more than kids.
They were at least missing half the amount of vendors they could have held which should have been our first sign of trouble.
We've worked plenty of markets and the steep vendor fee was insane on it's own but we know enough about the markets to know what to expect and not making any money (okay some but we didn't even make half the fee back). It wouldn't be so enraging if the false advertisement of Shauna (sp) the organizer cared about the people behind the businesses who rely on these events for income. Instead she ran away and pretended to have a phone call to avoid speaking to us (seriously!). Once we cornered her she had nothing to say and just wanted us gone. No sorry or try to rectify the issue, just attitude and dismissal. We asked for 50% of the fee back so we could make good and not leave negative and break even at least.
We want to thank Wendy though for being amazing and think she would be a better fit to run events. Please be aware as what they advertise as attendance is not accurate and don't recommend this show to anyone. Vending or visiting.
These shows are a way to help bring awareness to the AMAZING local talent we have and they need to check themselves. Without us, the local vendors and small businesses they wouldn't have an event. Support local, but if you're a vendor PLEASE don't let organizers take advantage of you. Stand up for yourself and your worth.
