    How was the turnout at the last one?

    lots at last one
    things were going quick.

    a fair few of the sellers were late arriving; which was annoying, just meant a bit of waiting around from early if you want to snare bargains.

    Good turnout last time. Will be there again. Anyone wanna get in on some space with me and Alexi?

    We'll be there on time/early, and will likely have beverages for our dear customers again!clockwork ted: this is my favorite thread. sweet BJ alexi!

    The turnout was good last time, we had over 20 vendors and a steady crowd throughout the night. I'm expecting the same, perhaps more vendors this time. The last one coincided with Interbike or some other industry event so a lot of reps couldn't go but will be there this time around. This means sweet, cheap deals on last season's sample items. Also, epic bake sale as usual. We sold out of everything at the last event and there were hundreds of vegan-friendly cupcakes, cookies, and whoopie pies.

    Marianna, you just use margarine instead of butter. I use the Earth Balance "Vegan Buttery Sticks".

    Mike & Caitlin made the Salted Fudge Brownies and Chocolate-covered Bacon. Julia from Stampede! came a bit later and was nice enough to donate the muffins, blueberry oat bars and more brownies to the bake sale.

    Thanks to everyone who came out! We had a really great time & felt that the event was really successful, all the vendors and attendees that I talked to afterwards seemed happy. If you've got any feedback for me, feel free to whisper me with it. Hopefully next time we can get music going sooner, we had an issue with missing speaker cables followed by difficulty in finding a working electrical outlet.
