This was my 18th year working a booth at the Show. I spoke with a lot of vendors and old timers who say the show is heading downhill. I sort of feel that way myself. This was the first year I and my other booth workers did not make any purchases. And, to me, it seemed like people wern't buying as much. Some ideas I have heard about the decline are.
1. Too much money to park and get in
2. Lack of regular deals, ie Boondocks, Fred Meyers etc
3. Having it on Easter weekend
4. Big box stores have filled the need
Just curious about what other folks on here think?
