Convergence is an Annual Goth Convention that is held in different cities each year, This year it was in Portland OR, next year it's in Florida.  it's been all over the US and Canada so far.
Basically it's a bunch of Goths and punks getting together for a 3 day long Festival that has a theme and has be pre arranged by a committee of volunteers
Here is the Convergence 13 website http://www.convergence13.com/

I would say a couple hundred people came by, it was very busy and people were there to buy stuff and buy they did. I made a lot of money at this event. Also it's not an event to vend on your own, having someone there to help is required if you want to be able to eat and use the rest rooms there are very few down times.
an 8ft table was $300 for 3 days of vending and vending was 6 - 8 hours a day.
Each year it is different depending on the location so it might be more for a table or less.

Cool - I take my mom with me too!!
I love your bangle display!

WIPs it went pretty good thanks, I didn't break even cos it was an 160 plot (eeek) but I only missed it by a few pounds, and the experience was invaluable - I know a lot more about everything to do with it all now, so that's pretty cool. A very good first festival!

I just did my first EVER craft fair and boy did I learn a lot.

So anyway, this is what my booth looked like tonight, but I'll be changing to a mainly tabletop display for next week because that whole people are looking down as they walk past thing is soooo true.
 I also need a light because the last half hour gets really dark.



Bag display, sparse, I admit, but no one bought any bags so it'll be beefed up for next week. The rack is just a dowel hung from ribbon tied to my EZ up.


My husband Brad, modeling one of my shirts in front of the clothing section of my booth. I actually sold one of my T-Shirt recons, which I was way proud of.


My clock display. I sold a clock so I had to fill in with a bag. (Little thing I picked up in my retail experience.) The clocks were a huge eye catcher, people totally loved them... plus they move on their own so I'm sure that helps in the whole eye catching thing. I sold one of these too.


This was my jewelry/undies display. Unfortunately I spent awhile on the frame racks but hardly anyone looked up to see the earrings. I think I'm going to try putting everything on the tables next week, I probably won't use the frames though. Its a pity really, because I like the way they turned out. Oh well. Live and learn.

That's my booth! I sold 3 things tonight but I learned a ton so next week it will be better. By the time the street fair is over I'll have it down!

Could you use a small table top easel to prop the earring rack on?
