I hate liars

Really. I do. I decided that today.

Like... I hate when people say:
  • 82% of our vendors return every year
  • I found you through a friend (but can't quite remember) and love your work
  • Anything under $50 just flies through the door
  • There might be 3-4 hair accessory booths but they'll be so spread out you'll never run into each other
When in reality it's really like:
  • Just about everyone was a 1st time vendor
  • Pretty sure my name was taken from a list of vendors from a different show I did. Because I find it strangely coincidental that so many of us attended the same show back in April, and here we all are as first time vendors at this show... being quoted the same statistics
  • Anything under $5 WALKED through the door... not necessarily 'flew'
  • Awesome. 3 of us selling basically the same thing. And we're all pretty much right next to each other. Fantastic
While some of the lies might not be completely detrimental, the fact is, a lie is lie. And I ask specific questions before doing a show because more than likely, if I had gotten TRUTHFUL answers to my questions, I wouldn't have done it.

So what's a girl to do? Well, I already sent off an email explaining my 'frustrations' and they can expect to receive a phone call in the morning as well. I'm just not 'down' with their 'business tactics'.


But I guess good news for everyone else is that I have a TON of stock to get rid of. So a sale on my etsy site will be up pretty darn soon.

THE TRUTH:
While I LOVE the 'artistic' approach to this photo, it was completely unintentional and happened purely by luck.




Sneak peek of what's to come!
