Help me figure out what I'm getting into

There's a show I want to do. It's a big show. There will be thousands of young buyers, and many of them save up during the year just to shop at this show. So far as I know, I'll be the only one selling the items I carry (vintage kimono, etc). I really, really want to do this show.

It costs $900 just for the booth. And it's 600 miles away. I'll have to drive.

I am nuts.


So... tell me what you think. Am I crazy, overly ambitious, or on the right track?

Judgment call, and purely up to you.

Can you financially afford it, that's all I ask.

If you can, then go for it!

Go for it! You have to try it. You will learn so much by going there, and bring oodles of business cards for networking, and do a little contest-giveaway to get everyone's email contact so you can send them information later. The experience of a show like this will push you to the next level with your business.

I think it's your target audience in theme, but as soon as I saw the site, I wondered whether the young audience would be a discernible one - one that appreciates vintage. And have the money to pay for it. I would ask some questions of the organizers, like: where does the majority of the audience come from, what is the main age group, are there any other vendors that are similar to mine (vintage) that I can contact before I commit, who sells the most product... those kinds of questions. That will give you a better background.

Live on the fly, you're right, of course. I guess I feel confident about it because I used to go to those types shows.... and spend a lot of money. Yeah, I'm a geek.
