Why is the cost for one table at the bead bazaar $180. This is just an insult. As a founding member in 1993, I remember how we discussed having a bazaar and that the cost was "TO BE MINIMAL". The original premise for having a bead bazaar during the gathering was to help recoup cost to get there. Is the bead bazaar being used to generate funds for ISGB? It should not .
Also-up front-I would like to suggest that only fully paid conferance members be allowed to sell in the bead bazaar. This is a sticky point that has been brought up many times.
Here are two questions that I would like answers to.
1) How many tables might be sold for the bead bazaar? This is a figure that for now is unknown, so maybe, how many were there last year? Also, with this bad economy, there are likely to be fewer selling. Also at $180 a table, fewer selling.
2) What is the cost of the hall for the one day? And we know that the bazaar cloeses earlier than any bead show in this nation. But lets just go for the one full day cost of the hall. That might make some understand the high table cost.
I am just trying to figure out how this $180 a table cost comes from.
Please answer these simple---yes VERY SIMPLE questions.
