Tis the Season: Advice for Convention First Timers

By: Meg Humphrey Katsucon happened and I had my first vending experience of the year so I’m declaring it open season for conventions. In the 16 years that I’ve been attending and staffing conventions, I still get a little fuzzy feeling when someone tells me they’re going to their first con. Every convention has a […]
