I sold at Lexington Comic Con on March 21st through March 24th, and it was my fourth time selling there. I was SOSOSOSOSO excited for this because it is one of my favorite events to sell at! I had no idea what to expect this year because the building was under construction and they expanded the con to Thursday this year. When I got there, it was difficult to find the load in dock due to all the construction. Once I found the load in dock, everything was a breeze! The convention center's staff and the con staff were very sweet and helpful. The con staff even provided free parking passes for the lot across the street since we could no longer park in the free lot behind the building due to the construction. This right here is why I keep coming back to this con! The con staff actually cares about their vendors and artists and other cons should take note of this (lookin' at you Megacon, Wizard World, and Supercon, ha!).
Anyways, this is what my set up for the weekend looked like.
I was so excited to be beside a pillar that I could put my fourth dry erase board of magnets! Foot traffic was surprisingly heavy on Thursday night and honestly went better than Friday.
Foot traffic was was very steady all weekend. Saturday's foot traffic was not quite as busy as past years, but tickets for Saturday was sold out and my sales did not take a hit due to the ticket sales cap. I highly recommend this con to anybody in the business of selling at artist alleys! It is $150 for a 6 foot table space which is not bad at all for a con of this size. I'd LOVE to expand to two 6 foot tables next year, and I have sent an email about it, but have yet to get a response, so we will see what happens.
The whole convention center is converted to fandom heaven for 4 days and it's absolutely amazing! Not only that, Lexington as a city is so much fun to visit. I got dolled up for the con on Friday and went to an adorable macaron bakery called La Petite Délicat. Saturday we went out for sushi at a place called Red Bang Bang Sushi before going out to a barcade called The Burl Arcade. All of these places were a blast, and I highly recommend if you are in the area. Can't wait to come back for Lexington Comic Con 2020!
