Here we are at Day 0 of the fair or rather half of Day 0. The reason I say “half” is because we weren’t able to do any setting up of the booth today. But we did manage to get a good look at our booth spot.
The Chilly Mall
The New Old MacDonald Farm, right in front of the Chilly Mall
The Chilly Mall building where we are located is as roomy as ever and is located right in front of the new Old MacDonald Barn that was recently completed last week.
The ThunderKid Manga booth! Empty now but soon to be decorated by opening day!
Our spot this time around is in the same hall where we were last year (Hall 3) but this time we are located in the middle of the hall. Best of all it looks like everyone in the middle row is getting the option of designing a corner booth! Corner booths for a vendor of a booth is often seen as the best option at trade shows because of the better traffic. They can cost more however, but thanks be to God the MCAF doesn’t charge extra for corner booths.
I’m also loving the new curtains that they brought to this fair this year. If you’ve seen our booths in the past you would know that the original curtains were yellow, but I had hoped to get a different curtain that matched the store colors a bit better. This change saved us an additional purchase of a new curtain!
We’re also neighbored to some of our fellow vendors that we met and connected with last year, such as a very good guy from the Bath Guys, and a nice group of ladies from Tomboy Tools just to name a few. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again!
I’m trusting in God that this will be the best MCAF that we’ve had yet, and not just for dad and me, but for everyone at the fair, vendor and fair-goer. We’ll have more updates as the happen tomorrow!
