HowardC - On one hand, I see where you're coming from and agree, because some sellers really do charge far too much. At the same time, I know first hand just how expensive exhibiting at a convention can be for sellers. Purchasing booth space, paying for your merch supplies, getting a seller's permit and paying taxes on any sales, etc. I think it really just comes down to finding a happy medium. And yeah, as Johnny said, all conventions pretty much exist to sell you stuff heheh. What's nice about them is that they introduce you to cool things you never knew existed in the first place.

JohnnyQuest - I'm not sure what the various ticket prices were. I don't recall having to pay to do the workshops, but that's only because we didn't do them. You had to sign up in advance as each workshop filled up with participants quickly. We were also on a schedule that day and couldn't stick around for the later workshops.
