OK, Yahoo, I did it. The flea that is. I just wanted to post what I learned. I had the good fortune to share a booth with a great sales person. We even had other vendors coming over to see why we had all the people at our booth.

Our secret weapon was simply that we chatted people up. We said hi to everyone that walked by if we could make eye contact. I stood in the isle along side the visitors and explained all about my work. And, it helped that my prices were "good deals" too.

I can see however, that to make a good living long term requires a mix of smarts and good fortune.

anybody else, with good strategies? annie
