Despite all my hard work on downsizing, I still have a lot of videogame stuff left to sell off. Toys, boardgames and puzzles, t-shirts, controllers, various promotional tchotchkes and knick-knacks, old handhelds, and of course, games, consoles and even arcade PCBs and parts.
So I’m thinking about doing a Retro Game SuperHyper booth at the Midwest Gaming Classic in 2018! It would be super helpful for selling my stuff, and of course I could also have some of the RGSH fanzines and t-shirts available too, and promote the blog.
Then again, there’s the trepidation of, what if it’s a bust? What if I don’t sell anything? What if people hate the blog and come to my booth just to elbow me in the face? And worst of all, what if I don’t get a chance to enjoy the show and do some shopping and mingling of my own?
I dunno. I gotta think about it. But the more I think about it, the more fun it sounds. MGC2018 is going to be the biggest one yet, as they’re moving from the Sheraton hotel in Brookfield, where it’s been for the past several years, to the Wisconsin Center right in downtown Milwaukee — a huge convention venue that used to host GenCon. I’ve been there and it’s an awesome space, so next year’s MGC will be impressive for sure.
What do you think? Should I do it? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to meet you guys, even if you don’t buy my stuff!
