Here's Your Chance!

Have you ever wanted to do a big name show but thought you couldn't afford it? Well I have an unbelievable opportunity for the Music Valley, Tailgate and The Vintage Market Place shows, Feb. 2-4, 2012 in Nashville, TN.

Jon Jenkins, one of the owners of the Music Valley and Tailgate show, contacted me last week with some ideas for the show.  He has decided to have a special section just for bloggers called The Vintage Market Place. Best part is, he's come up with a way for bloggers to do the show at a reasonable rate. He has recognized all the amazing talent that dominates the blogging world and wants YOU to be a part of the show. He also realized that most bloggers don't do shows for a living, but would like to be a part of the show circuit.

I am so excited about his proposal! If you are a blogger that sells old stuff and would like to do the show, listen up! If are willing to do some post about the show, put it on your side bar, or both, you can shave money off your booth rent. Yes! Can you believe this? I've been doing shows for 12 years and I've never had a show promoter offer a deal like this!

For each post that you do about the show, up to 20, you decrease your booth rent by $15! That could add up to $300. Also placing the show in your sidebar amounts to $75. So posting alone or posting 15 times and side bar placement could earn you the $300. TOP OUT IS AT $300. When is the last time anyone paid you to post?

A 10x14 booth goes for $645. With the discounts in place you could shave your booth rent down to $345! How great is that? Bigger booths are available.

Jon said he knows that most bloggers that aren't in the biz, but would like to do a show, operate on a much smaller budget. Jon really wants to bring some diversity to the show and what better way to do that but with Bloggers!

I really think Jon is on to something. We all know how powerful Blogger and Facebook is! If you have any interest at all, please contact me and I can e-mail you a contract and a brochure. I am also compiling a list of interested parties for pass along to Jon.

Don't pass up this opportunity! Hurry so you can get the best booths first!

It is going to be a very unique show. Everyone is talking about it. All those Texas and Ohio bloggers should do this. It's a great way to attract the younger buyers - those that represent a large part of the business now. 80% of our business at City Farmhouse is 20 and 30 somethings. They are great buyers and are very socially active on fb and blogs. Hope to see everyone there! A new idea you will not want to miss being a part of.
