When I went in on a booth at Salt Lake Comic Con in September, I didn't make any of my money back, so I had a low bar set for Salt Lake Gaming Con this past weekend. I kept thinking that if I could just make back the cost of the booth, I'd be happy. Well, I was happy. Thursday saw many people pass by my booth, most of whom stopped thanks to my friend who volunteered to call people over so I could paint. Many of those who stopped to look at my figurines for sale bought raffle tickets to try to win either my Dungeons and Dragon's Red Dragon, or the Bones Kraken. I made back the cost of my booth that first day!
My amazing sister-in-law came and helped me on Friday and Saturday. It was great! Between my friend and my sister-in-law I not only got tons of painting done, but I was also able to wander the con. I talked to other vendors and had some fun seeing if there was anything new I hadn't seen before. Plus, it was nice just to stretch my legs every few hours.
Saturday was by far my busiest day. I'd spent most of Thursday painting Hero Quest furniture that my husband had bought to keep me busy. Friday, I had a few commissions, but all I painted on Saturday were commissions. I guess word had spread. I had also sold the most miniatures on Saturday, and traded a few with some of the other vendors for some cool stuff. The raffle was also held Saturday night. Much to the chagrin of a few people, Zack G. won the dragon and Robbie S. won the kraken!
I probably won't have a booth at Salt Lake Comic Con, but I am planning on being at Salt Con in March!
