 It was a lot of fun!! I met some cool people and bought some really awesome prints/goodies. I think I'm going to table there next year! Any advice for what I should bring to sell? What do you like to buy at furcons? 

Anyways, I had a pretty dang good time. The only thing that disappointing me about it was like.. Furries are really really overtly sexual and it was uncomfortable x_x 

Aside from that I had fun. Vf2018 here I come!

oh that sounds so nice!  it must be really nice to be able to go to two cons so close by to each other. youre really lucky!

in my experience usually the best thing to sell at furcons are on-site commissions and original works. the thing i see artists sell the most are badges, people like to commission traditional badges to be picked up a few hours later at the con (and digital if you have access to a good printer during the con).  i actually dont see a lot of original merch for sale since furries are more of a general thing compared to fanart? if that makes sense. on-site commissions (or commissions you can complete overnight) are usually the best way to make money if you set up shop and almost every artist ive seen at a furry con accepts them all the time

i wouldnt really sell fanart unless if its for something SUPER well known. and even then ive only seen a moderate amount of artists sell it (just a few prints and small things like buttons amd washi tape). i dont know exactly how well fanart is able to sell but it usually is uncommon. (the only exceptions would be G4 MLP and pokemon?)
