    Would you welcome a "vendor section" in our "Flea Market"?

    What is the consensus on a "Vendor Section" in our "Flea Market"?
    I ask because I have a small, nondescript embroidery/graphic business to generate "gas money".
    If I place an ad in the flea market selling a "custom hat or garment" I'm in violation of the "rules".
    Save the flames... I'm asking a legitimate question:

    Would you welcome a "vendor section" in our "Flea Market"?

    Sure, why not

    But vendors should be required to financially contribute to the forum in some way, and should be offering reasonable discounts to members

    Sure... Most buy ad space already...
    As for discounts that would go w/o needing a requirement as evidenced by the bargains at the National Rallies...

    Will a guest be able to access it or is it for members only?

    The folks behind the curtain(s) will have to hammer out who has access.

    IE: Will a vendor have to be a member? I dunno... Perhaps as advertisers they'd get a "Pass to list" so to speak.
    Or the vendor area would be "Public" but a member would need to present a MOA # to qualify for said discount.

    Good Question.

    I'm just askin' to see if it is in fact an interest to the members. Especially to small "concerns" such as myself. The weekend shoppe keeper.

    I think it is a good idea too. I'm in my 15th year of doing this part time.
    While exposure is good, I think given past problems it should remain for members only.

    I agree. We do this on I-BMW and it works well for the vendors and members.

    Sounds like a good plan.

    Really? How hard can it be? [search] forum input what ya want.

    Me thinks it's the change folks don't like. Actually it's even easier now.

    What Ever. It's not like I don't bitch about anything around here.

    Is the advertising revenue of the magazine going to suffer if vendors are online.Maybe no magazine space no online space?
