          Look at it this way.. it's Washington DC.. it's the same week as their big powwow, it's during tourist season and a native festival at that... There are gonna be more money spending people there that week than you might find at the next 5 powwows... 2000.00 might just be a drop in the bucket for what a vendor (or co-op) can make that week.. and the security will probably be good as well. Think of how much european people spend on indian artistry and beadwork and how many of them will be visiting the capital for this! I'd say get 3 or 4 people together to split the cost, and have a table full of "stuff" and just sit back and watch the dough roll in!

            You got that right Black Bear.
            Some times 1,500.00 or 2,000.00 may seem like alot to spend on a booth, but, holy cow ... all you need is one good sale and bammo ... all the rest is icing.
            i also agree, that if a ppl got together and split the cost, wow, even better and look - that's a whole lotta ppl that are expected to come thru.
            look at it the experience of it all
            anyhoo ... i've been checking it out since i read your thread black bear, and if i can figure it out round my schedules of my art career, my 8 to 5 job & family ... i'd be there.

                    Wooo that is a lot. But my cuzin was ask to make a mens woodland breech cloth with bead work on it and I think it was a bandaler (is that how ya spell it lol?) anywayz they gave her $1800 for it. It wasn't all beaded either. Just a few floral designs. It was the smithsonian museum that bought it. So I know some people go craza over bead work. So I bet with the high rollers *lmao* that would be there you could probably make some back.

                        Caribou hair tuft leather bikinis & tops? LMAO. I don't see a problem making something for museums. People do it also with pictures they painted and other art.
