When shows are slow vendors have a tendency to get negative.
I had a couple of neighbors, who I thought were doing really well, complain both days. They had nothing nice to say about the promoters or the show in general.
Another neighbor around us was very loud and kind of rude. He practically pulled people out of the isle to come look at his stuff, and then proceeded to tell people that he had the best, most unique stuff at the show and that nothing else at the show could compare to his amazing work. He even rolled his eyes and made snotty comments if people walked away and did not purchase.
It made for great people watching, but I was pretty annoyed with both of these neighbors by the end of the show. When I talked to them I tried to stay positive and just let them complain. Luckily they packed up and left early.
Personally I may complain to my sister but I would never complain to another vendor or a promoter. Most of the time it is not their fault and complaining is just a waste of time. I try to find the positive from events like that, and just start planning my next event. My sister and I had a good time laughing, talking, and making plans for next year and that made it a great weekend for me.
What are your thoughts about negative show neighbors, or even loud rude neighbors?
