A small venue and a small care about what the attendees want.
This is clearly a convention run by an out of touch staff that allows their friends to get in and get away with downright table thievery (An artist literally bought their way off the waitlist this year, and when caught, the staff let them stay instead of having a backbone and sense of honor to those who were on the actual waitlist and did things right)
Also, their idea that you have to come in, take a day off work, and do their little "craft fair" and "flea market" to get priority for a no show, off the waitlist table, feels more like "dance monkeys dance" than a credible way of doing things.
There are better shows this time of year, and better shows in the same building three times of year here.
