You’d think that being a vendor at Comic-Con for our 21st year means that it’s easy, but it continues to be difficult. Even though it’s a couple of days away, the preparation began long ago. From renting the booth, a place to stay, parking, extra tables, gathering the items we’re selling, to the “exclusives,” the job is never done. I’ll begin with the latter. Exclusives are one of the most important aspects of a booth. Without them, you’ll turn into a regular shop or booth without anything special to offer and promote. You’ll have goods that can be purchased anywhere and what’s the point of having them at Comic-Con San Diego?
