Aren't gun shows fun? For the last few years, I've been divesting myself of military odds and ends I've acquired over the years and some finds at garage and estate sales. I look around after I've set up my table just to get an idea of pricing but I'm really not in the buying market anymore, so I go as a vendor. Everything you guys have to put up with, we have up here in Canada. We have the tire-kickers, low-ballers, and vendors who want items for pennies so they can sell them for dollars when the show opens to the public. I've never seen CC transactions at all; everything is cash or (if a buyer is well known to you) cheques. As a vendor, the biggest PITA are the poor lost souls, socially disenfranchised, who will stand in front of your table, gab away, buy nothing, take it upon themselves to "share" their experiences and their extensive range of knowledge (often inaccurate) and block other potential buyers from seeing your stock. It's even more interesting when the chatterbox is one of those old guys with a very casual attitude toward personal hygiene. We have the same vendors who are at every show, with the same vastly over-priced wares that never seem to sell. I'm convinced they're there just as a social outing and meeting old friends rather than from any serious intent to transact business. I price my stuff to a little below fair market value, and I've even sold items at a loss because I did so well on other items that moved for a substantial profit. With the current lock-downs, we have no prospect of any gun/militaria shows in foreseeable future. I hope you guys fare better.
