I want to remind the list of all the great vendors such as Blows Me Away,
Lone Wolf, Blue Moon, Seydel, Suzuki, Hohner, George Miklas, Harmonica MD,
Danny G, Pullmonica and the many others who support SPAH year after year
via their vendor fees and kind sponsorships.
In general you have to rent a table in the vendor area if you want to sell
merchandise at SPAH. There is some allowance for private one-on-one
sales, but please pay due respect to the folks who pay the vendor fees and keep
those things private things private.
I think most aren't aware and aren't deliberately sidestepping the vendor
regs. So far no big deal this year, but public announcements on forums
such as this do seem to infringe. It's touchy, in the past some have gone
beyond what's appropriate.
The vendors miss out on the fun stuff all day long while they are servicing
your needs. I've been on that side of the counter, it's a ton of work.
Technically, at spah you CAN have your cake & eat it too... but it isn't
fair to the loyal vendors, for some this is their principal livelyhood.
Unofficial, I don't have a hand in vendor relations, just expressing my
BTW, the vendor area at SPAH is open to the public. If you're local and
not registered for the convention, you can still stop by for some great
deals on all things harmonica! I think the vendor hours are 9am - 5pm
