SDCC 2008 more pics
Here are views of the booth, draped prior to open hours, and with final prep just before the attendees arrive... This year we added a bag check. This allowed our visitors to unburden themselves from sacks and backpacks and enhanced the browsing experience inside the booth. We did have to close the booth briefly from time to time (we had 25 clothespins to check bags, and once they were all used, we'd rope off the entry until we got some clothespins back as patrons finished shopping). Entry is allowed anytime for visitors who don't have bags to check. Our patrons appreciated being able to really view the books on display without being pummeled by backpacks and those notorious "give-away" bags (large enough to stow small pets or my beloved Christian Siriano) that are ubiquitous at the Con these days.
