a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Wow! Why are the tables so expensive? $40-$80 per day?! The most I've ever paid was $15, and I thought that was pretty steep for the amount of space I was given.
HOLY CRAP, tabling is expensive! paper trail would definitely need at least one eight foot table, but $150 for a table that size for the weekend?!?! are they kidding? i only make $300 at an average zine fest. that's nothing to sneeze at, but i wouldn't want to turn around & have to pay half my take just for the tabling fee! i have to do mad crazy re-stocks after tabling at a zine event, i need that money to order more zines! that is ridonkulous for a zine fest. charge that much for a craft fest, where people are charging $20 for a screenprinted t-shirt. but zines are like $2 each.
i'm thinking they must be paying for the space & for table rentals. that's the only thing i can think of that would justify that kind of table expense. i would have considered attending if it wasn't so pricy.
